Moda’s Branching Out
Friday, April 22, 2022
Still Here -And Kicking!
So where shall I begin....
I started working on Moda's Branch Out. It's a fun project although it's not an easy block.
My work on it was interrupted by the announcement of a baby being due. My little daughter and her husband are expecting their first
Me and grandson Troy. Isn't he the cutest thing? He told me he was 13 and his mother insists he's 12. LOL! Neither one of us would do the math to figure out the truth.
On our camping trip we also made it to the Grand Canyon. It was our second time and we enjoyed as much as the first time.
The next quilt I'll be working on is the one for my sister.

Word up 2022
Well Hello January!
I'm ready to see what kind of year this will be. I haven't had much interest in sewing or quilting. I've been spending time making a home here. It's a rural area so I thought I would use my time in my sewing room, but that hasn't happened. I have been working on a Burcilla stocking for my son-in-law.
Some of the items for the stocking are so darn tiny! It will be ready for next Christmas.
Next Thursday I plan to attend the meeting at the local guild. Hopefully, this will help me with getting back into sewing and make some friends.
I'm still working ever so slowly on the Bats and Boos Quilt. Geez can you believe it's taking this long?
My WORD UP ought to be HURRY. But I decided on TRUST.
I trust God is working things out for me with this move. That I will adjust, find some friends, enjoy my sewing again. And I trust Him that He has good things in store for us here.
Let me know your Word up and

Time Flies - Alligators to Dogs
We all went to the alligator farm. We also went boating and for rides in the golf cart. So cool to have them come see where I live and how things are for me here. My life is so different here than in California. I just do different things here. I don’t have the pool and kids around.
I did work on my Bats and Boos Mystery quilt.
I almost finished it. I just lost interest in it. I sort of don’t like it and I need to buy more fabric to finish up the borders.
But the best news is I have another little love. This is Jovi
I’m finally working on Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt. I’m so happy to be getting this quilt quilted. Okay so I haven’t actually started quilting it yet. But I ironed the backing! LOL
I plan on getting the top ironed & starched tomorrow and then my layers pinned.
I also need to vacuum the house. And I better get to the grocery store if I want to eat next week.
What are you working on?

Bats & Boos - Pumpkin Block
Blocks of the week or month have always been an easy thing for me. Until the puppy came!
Oh my she takes up so much of my time. Playing with her, taking her out to potty 20 times a day. It all adds up to an incomplete pumpkin block.
Although I much admit I’ve been having so much fun working on it.
So I need to go sew while she is sleeping.

Bats and Boos Bat Block
I was so very devastated to lose my Marizpan. I know I need a dog in my life so we found our new little one. She is super cute.
Oh my gosh, I decided to let Bruce name her. He was in no hurry. It started to drive me nuts! But today we have a name. MiaJovi which means my joy or my beloved. We may end up calling her either Mia or Jovi or change it but for now she has a name
I’ve been working on the bat blocks. They are so cool.
And this week I’ve been working on the pumpkin block. I love the block! So I’ll be back to show you those.
It’s just comforting to get back to making blocks and sewing.
Now let’s get back to sewing or maybe back to playing with MiaJovi.

Bats and Boos Mystery
Now that I’m in a new place and most of the house is put together I was curious about the quilting shop in town. Bats and Boos Mystery gave me the perfect excuse.
Before moving I greatly reduced my fabric. So much of it I was given, had stored for years and to be honest I was never going to use it. The best part was letting my granddaughter come over and take any thing she wanted. I also gave her my mothers machine & cabinet, scissors, thread and any notion I could think of.
Well back to the Bat & Boos
This is my daughter Serena teaching a little girl to skate. Check out her reaction when she accomplished her goal.
We should all be so happy with our accomplishments big and small.
Now it’s ice tea time!
See you all soon!
