Since it’s been weeks, I couldn’t resist adding a few extra favorites today:

1. Selvedges bag, 2. T-If Fabric Grew on Trees, 3. Badge Holder PDF sewing pattern, 4. Simple Strings finished, 5. test block, 6. Dreamin’ Vintage Lined Drawstring Bags, 7. A finish for the evening! #Rockcandy #jaybirdquilts #lindarellas #tulapink #foxfield, 8. chaos quilt finished, 9. Fabric close up, 10. quilting, 11. Klee’s Trees, 12. Triangle quilt top complete!, 13. flickr.com/photos/26463953@N07/13834970403/, 14. tone it down quilt, 15. It looks good on my bed. Think it should stay there. #wishihadmadeitbigger

I wasn’t the only one missing my Friday Favorites. A big “Thank You!” for all the gentle nudges.

Life on the plus side

A finished top at last!

I started out March by committing (privately) to post more frequently. I’m so glad I didn’t stand up and announce that little gem to the world, because nearly the entire month has gone by without a single post.

Ninety-six napkins cut and the sewing started. Because I’m that kind of mom, and she’s that kind of girl. <3

Life happened instead. Good things like a quilting retreat (with a finished top), a get-away-from-everything weekend (I did bring hand applique and some of my favorite people), and lots of early preparation for my girl’s October wedding. Scary things, too, like multiple trips to the ER and doctor appointments with my best friend (all is well with him – no worries).

Succulents & milk glass – getting a head start on wedding decorations

Best things? Time with Madie (always), taking a class and starting a healthy new eating plan,  selling my HQ16 (just yesterday – more on that soon), and seeing the proof sheets for my first published project. Worst things? Raging seasonal allergies, work projects that were really draining, guild commitments I came up short on, and now making the final decision on which longarm to buy.  Yes, I know the last one is the very definition of “first world problems”, but cut me a break.

Yogurt and fruit. Clearly a favorite.

March has been one of those months that I’d like to wrap a bow around.  My precious family, amazing and inspiring friends, a craft that brings me joy, and a fresh energy to own my health. The highs don’t come without lows, but it’s all relative. Or “it’s all your relatives”.  You’ll have to decide that one for yourself.
Oh, and the posting? I’ll do better in April. I promise.
