What's the problem?

This is just a quilty picture from one of our favorite quilt shows in Topeka, Indiana. It used to be held at the United Methodist Church in that town and we went every year to look and sometimes to buy. The first time we went was the day before my second son was born. It was so neat, but a lot to absorb. So, the next day, while I recovered from my spinal anesthesia, my husband went back to the sale and brought back a bunch of wall quilts to decorate my hospital room. Within in a month I went back to the hospital with some problems and the quilts came with me. Do not underestimate the healing power of quilts! Those quilts still hold special meaning to me.

I am waaaay behind in blogging. I've had good intentions, though. My husband and kids went to his father's over spring break because I couldn't get off from work. I thought, "What a great time to post on the blog!" But that week, he had installed some new spyware that wouldn't let me get into Google reader, so I was locked out. Waah!

And every time I want to take some pics for you, the battery on the camera is dead, or the SD chip is gone. It's unbelievable. I have so much to show you (well, don't get too excited). I've made some progress on my promise stitching projects. I'm doing 2 BOM's, one with my quilt guild from the Women of Influence book and another from the new quilt shop in my home town. I'll have pics of those blocks soon, too.

My husband and I went on a quilt shop hop in March, here in northern Indiana and western Ohio. We were shocked and amazed when he won the grand prize from the shop hop, a Janome DC 2010 sewing machine. I finally used it this week, putting together one of my BOM's. It is sweet! I really love the 1/4 inch foot!

So, here I am, once again promising pictures, but at least you've heard from me. I'm still alive. There's just so much going on with the kids and work! At least I'm getting some sewing done, which is amazing for me. Usually that's the first thing that goes to the side.

I'll be back soon, I promise.
