I'm not gone

just real busy.
If I didn't have a 40 hour a week job,
if I didn't have to mow grass, wash clothes, do housework,
cook, grocery shopping,  entertain an 11 year old and aging parents
I just might get some quilting done.
I have been working on a few things,
finishing up some quilts that have been in
my hands way too long.
Pictures will follow, hopefully this week.
There is one picture I would like to share
My ICON or tattoo quilt won a ribbon at a small local quilt show.
I'm not asking how many quilts were in the class,
I'm going to hang my ribbon in my studio and be proud.
There were some beautiful quilts in the show.
There was a Log Cabin quilt I would have loved to have.
My phone was going dead so I couldn't take anymore picture, just glad
I could get one of my quilt.
Had to call my son and tell him his ICON quilt won a ribbon,
he was very proud of his mama and wondered if he was ever going to get his quilt.
I need to take vacation time to get caught up
on quilty things.
