Moda’s Branching Out

I sewed up three more blocks for my Branching Out Quilt. 

Where I now live, Arkansas, has lots of trees.
This is a picture from yesterday when we were out on the golf course. 
So you can see why I’m naming this quilt, My Arkansas Quilt.  I decided to add a few fall orange colors. And I do love them among the greens. 

We’ve now been here one year. I suppose it time I change my name from Linda in Calif.   Don’t  you agree?

Happy Stitching!

Still Here -And Kicking!

 I'm sure by now you all think I have fallen off the earth. I couldn't get my computer to work and I had so many other things going on it wasn't the most pressing matter to fix.

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

We threw them a surprise shower at our annual family camping trip.  This is the only picture of the quilt I took  It's a disappearing 9 patch.  

We actually haven't had our annual camping trip the last 4 years and it was good to get back in the swing of things. 

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.  

During the Christmas season I made this stocking for Stephen.  My sister did the horse.

I love doing these Brucilla Stockings. They are tons of work but so worth it.

I found this kit at an yard sale. I've been SLOWLY working on it. It will get done someday.

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.
And here's my cutie pie Elora and doggie Gracie.
I also had the opportunity to give my daughter Rosanna her quilt.  For years she said she didn't like quilts. That she didn't want one.  However, when I started Fat Quarter Shop's Bat and Boos quilt - I knew it would be hers.
Yep, she was happy with it.  She does love Halloween too.

The next quilt I'll be working on is the one for my sister. 
A 4-patch Posies

I'll be back with more on this one another day.
Hopefully, I'll be able to post more often.

If you read this, please leave a comment so that I know I'm not just talking to myself.

Happy Stitching,

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 

Happy Sewing,
