Back in the swing....

Well here we are, a new year and time to start fresh.
I have put the pain and sadness of the past few months behind me. I feel refreshed and ready to take on 2013.
While on my forced sabbatical I was able to get a lot of new quilt designs down on paper. I am excited to be starting on a couple of them while I have the boys home on Summer holidays.
I am also getting through the backlog of customer quilts. I am very greatful to my customers for their understanding. Your quilts are not too far from being quilted...
 
This week I have been custom quilting one of my quilts that has been waiting too long for it's turn. The quilt is Loulou...and I love it. It reminds me of the circus.
Here is a little preview...

 
 
Hopefully I will get this close to finished tomorrow. We'll see...The weather forecast for tomorrow is Extreme to Catastrophic. Upwards of 42 degrees C. We live in a bushfire prone area so we have our fire plan in place ready to act if we have to. I have all my customer quilts ready to go in the car first if anything bad should happen...Oh, and the kids...
Here's to a hot but uneventful day tomorrow
 
Happy Quilting
