Gosh! It's been awhile

Thanks Evelyn for the kick I needed to get back on my blog and update everyone.

I am sorry it has been so long since I have been on my blog and posted anything! Quick update ... This winter we have actually had a winter with lots of SNOW for us here in the south to enjoy.

I have recently become unemployed so I am in the process of job searching. I have been steadily going thru things at the house and organizing things and thinning things out still. That will always be a work in progress for me. I have started painting the kitchen to brighten it up in there. It's going to be a pale yellow. Need to find some sunflower prints for new curtains in there too.

I have not been sewing much until here lately. I have been using solely from my stash but have not been posting to show any usage on Judy's blog.

This one is called Stars Over My Barns, the blocks are from a swap I did. Need to figure out borders and get this one completed soon.

This is what I have been working on for the last couple days. My UGRR blocks now have the sashing and corner squares cut to get those into a top. I have been piecing the border blocks (for swapping and my border) from smaller pieces of my Civil War fabrics. I think I am going to try and piece the backing for this one too and use up the rest of that fabric.
