A Long time

Hi there, remember me. Its been so long since I did a blog post I'm having to learn all over again. There have been some major changes in my life in recent months and now I'm slowly getting on with things but its been hard. Onwards and upwards as the saying goes.
Last month I was lucky enough to spend a week in the amazing USA, I have so much about my trip to share but i thought i would start of  with a finished quilt I'm so proud of.

Remember my smitten quilt I started almost 3 years ago. Finally finished and I couldn't be happier. I took it with my to America to show all my friends as they have been on this sewing journey with me right from the beginning. I sewed the binding down my first week there  then the fun photo shoots started.

 
 These are a few of my favourite photos, Taken in beautiful Wyoming in the mountains, Such stunning scenery and the perfect back drop.
Now I can enjoy it for many years to come.
I used all my favourite red white and blue fabrics, some of these are now discontinued and so hard to find which makes the quilt even more special.

I promise I  will be back soon to share more of our fun adventures, including watching my very first rodeo, now there's a story.

Take care  xx
