I know I've been away for a while - partly due to being busy, and partly due to being lazy.....what can I say. I've been working on a new BOM for our local guild with my Sassies quilting group - and we've got the concept figured out, now to actually create the patterns and technique instructions. Should be fun when we get together tomorrow for another planning session.
Meanwhile I finished another baby quilt for the population explosion we're experiencing right now. And we have a beautiful little boy to adore thanks to Tara, one of my quilting friends who has done a couple of challenges and round robins with my little international group. He is the cutest little guy and already growing like a weed.
We've also been off camping at Salmon Point which has a stunning view from the little local pub across the Strait to the snow capped mountains on the mainland. Wow......picture from hubby's camera to follow (hopefully).

I found this crazy quilting link and thought it was quite informative http://www.caron-net.com/classes/classmayfiles/clasmay1.html
Here's a view of my yard from my quilt room and a close up of the daffodils and pansies around the still-dead-looking tree at the end of the yard. My Christmas Roses (Helebores) are putting on a bit of a show, and I have a lot of sprouts showing their heads, but they'll be a bit longer yet. The red trilliums will be the next ones to bloom - then the Leopard's Bane (which is still only about 2 inches tall). I feel happy to see the lawn not under 3 inches of water. I was starting to wonder if we were all going to float away for a while there.
Here are 2 photos of the baby quilt my friend Tara chose from my stash of baby quilts. As Tara is a quilter too I'm happy to supply her with a more intricate baby quilt knowing she can appreciate the extra effort that went into this particular quilt. Now if the baby would only make an appearance, hmmmmm, maybe today. Tomorrow is Tara's birthday, so maybe tomorrow - now wouldn't that be fun!
