I'm Back

You can't imagine how glad I am to be back!  That flu bug just knocked me on my butt.  Thank you for all the get well wishes sent my way.  It warms my heart!

Receiving this cute Heather Ross fabric in the mail sure helped my recovery.  My first fabric purchase from ebay.  I blame it all on Angela ;-)

Being sick, I didn't get a chance to tell you about Friday's Dear Jane class at Material Girl.  I really need to devote an entire post, but here is a quick run down.  Our wonderful teacher is Laura.  She gave us patterns and directions for seven blocks...all due in two weeks.  No worries...I don't have any other projects to work on ;-)

Thanks to Laura's fabulous instructions and tips, I was finally successful in paper piecing...something I didn't think would ever happen.  It's not perfect, but it's a great start.  Hopefully, I will have some finished blocks to share for tomorrow's Sew and Tell.

I enjoyed meeting my classmates Sue, Sandy, Doris (not in picture), Lynn and Kathy - a fun bunch of gals.  I took the opportunity to shamelessly plug the equally fun Orlando Modern Quilt Guild with the hope that they will consider joining us.

Speaking of which, did you see Jacquie's article about The Modern Quilt Guild on Sew Mama Sew?  Check it out.  You'll even see a picture of the lovely ladies from the Orlando guild.

Have an amazing day!!!


  1. Glad you are feeling better! That Heather Ross fabric has to help anyone feel good :)

  2. It seems to me that your DJ block looks awfully good. Paper piecing helps provide amazing results! Good job, Rene'!

  3. I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling better! 7 DJ blocks in 2 weeks??? You're going to be a busy girl!

  4. I can see how that Heather Ross fabric would make someone feel better :)

  5. I was glad to see you found your camper vans :)
