I'm still here . . .

I'm still getting settled around the house, but the last worker left last Tuesday so all that's left is to clean up the dust, paint specks, and move everything back that we had to move out, that's all.


I'm still moving into my new sewing studio and haven't sewn in weeks.  I'm hoping that changes soon, very soon.  I already love the extra space I'm gaining with the new room.

Even though I'm not sewing, I do have some quilting news to share, Hocuspocusville is home from the quilter and 
just in time to enjoy before Halloween.


I've got a new place to display some quilts, between the kitchen the living room. 


I asked Dawn at the Sewing Basket to use a quilting pattern that looked like fog  floating around the stitched blocks.   I think she captured the the feel I was wanting perfectly.



The blocks for Hocuspocusville were generously stitched for me by a quilting friend, I assembled the blocks and sent it off for quilting.  It was a real group effort and a quilt I treasure. Hocuspocusville is Lifetime Quilt Number Eleventy Three, click here for more details.  


I also have LQ# 25 on my recliner and 


Hallowe'en 1904, LQ# 96 out on the bed.  Not only am I enjoying having the Halloween quilts out, after over 6 weeks, its' great to have any quilt out!

I hope to get back to sewing and regularly blogging soon, thanks for hanging in there with me.
