Late Wednesday night, after almost 24 hours of travel, my DH got home. Thank you for all the good wishes. I believe the way it happened was almost a miracle. God is good and he's home. I know there are still so many displaced and our thoughts and prayers go out to them until they are home with their families. While he was gone, I was very ADD - bouncing from one project to another. I am happy to show you the very first piece of Kaffe I've ever owned!! Yea!!! I bought this piece last week and have been staring at it. It just makes me happy. :)Here are the fabrics I have pulled so far for my new project. My friend Kim and I are going to do another joint project :). We haven't done one in a while. We use a lot of the same fabrics, share fabrics from our stash and then do our own quilt using the same pattern. It's always interesting to see our individual tastes come out. The quilts look different even though they're using a lot of the same fabrics. Once we get our strips cut, I'll share. We are not 100% sure which pattern we're going to use. Aren't these fun and happy?? So far, I love it!Just so you know I'm not completely abandoning my previous project, I thought I'd share my progress on the hand quilting on "Beauty for Ashes". After machine quilting, hand quilting does seem verrrrrry slow.
But every part of this quilt makes me smile. These colors are so soothing and restful.
