Welcome Back!

Welcome back to me! It's been almost a year since my last blog and lots of things have happened in the past year.

In February, I got married and we spent a blissful week in Hawaii on the most fabulous honeymoon. Heavenly!!

In May, my family entered our team in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life and our team, with a mere seven members, raised over $10,000.00!! We also received the spirit award (which means we were the silliest and loudest team).
Lots of other things have happened, motorcycle trips, camping trips, spending time with family and friends. We even managed to lay new concrete in our front driveway and are in the process of putting in new carpet and new siding on the house. We're doing most of it ourselves so it's hard work but the reward is worth it.
And last, but not least, I bought a Grace quilting frame a few weeks back and I'm so excited!!! I haven't quilted anything on it yet as I'm still playing with it all but soon I'll be whizzing through my quilt tops!

A couple of months back I was browsing through the Jolly Jabber when I came across some Halloween fabric from Sue Zipkin. I fell madly in love with Sue's line of fabric Gone Haunting and emailed her right away to let her know of my adoration. She kindly invited me to share my project with her and seven weeks later, when I did finish it, she asked if I'd like to be a guest blogger. How wonderful! Who doesn't love to show off their work? So when you get a chance, please check out Sue's blog. Her fabrics are just beautiful!

 Here's my finished quilt top using Gone Haunting. Each year my husband and I throw a Halloween Party (Halloween is my most favorite event of the year) and we invite our family and friends from out of town to stay the night with us. Each guest gets to sleep under a different Halloween quilt (I've made quite a few).
This year, this quilt is going on my bed!
Happy Tuesday everyone!
