That's Santa Cruz beach and boardwalk with my youngest grandson and my DIL. It was a gorgeous spring day. Have no idea why we are crouched over...
And a lot of this:
These are a couple of photos from my birding trip to Cuba. The 1950s American cars are amazing! Actually, Cuba is an amazing place to visit. I was only there for 2 weeks, but I think that had something to do with my blogging absence.
The next excuse erh.. uh.. reason I have for not blogging, is that I came back from Cuba and then put my house on the market. It sold right away and I have until June 30th to move. To get the house ready for sale, I had to de-clutter and pack up and empty out. Yea, my stash had to be packed up...I thought I kept out everything I needed to finish a few projects, but I seem to be missing some critical fabric for my Gees Bend quilt. And I packed the Robert Kaufman Kona solids card, so I'm not sure what the name of the missing fabric is for purposes of ordering more. I could head to the storage unit to try and find the box that has that fabric in it, but it might be a needle in the haystack process. Ordering sounds easier!
I did get a couple of finishes. I was participating in the Q1 2014 FAL and had hoped to get 4 projects finished. I am quite pleased, under the circumstances, that I got 2 projects finished. Here they are:
The first project I finished was the second in a "study" if you will. I'm thinking a third one is needed to round out the study. No, I don't know what I am going to do with these babies - wall hanging? gift? Yes, I did quilt it myself which is not at all like me!
My second finish is a very long standing project. I am quite sure I made the top in 2012... Here she is - my improvisational quilt. It's a fun little quilt made with scraps. I like including the central fabric from a prior quilt in little bits and pieces that show up in a later quilt. I did quilt this piece also. I really need to learn to be a better machine quilter if I'm going to keep this up!
Whew - I think I have caught you up on everything that has happened in the last 3 months. Let's see if I can actually get some sewing done before I move.
Aaaaaanyway, that's it from the Robertson household.
