Happy Friday!

Sorry for my absence lately.  You know how it is, right?  When real life takes over, there isn't much time to play.  The "thing" that has been causing me a lot of stress at work has been moved to later this fall.  I'll be hyperventilating then, but for now I have a nice long weekend to relax and hopefully work on something fun. 

Since I haven't been sewing lately, I thought I would share some pictures that some lovely people have shared over at the Scrap-Basket Group.  Just click on the links below to see each of the quilts.  Enjoy!

I love seeing what can be done with your patterns in different color ways! Isn't it a great feeling to see people actually makeing the quilts from your books! Thanks for the mini show!

That must make your heart sing seeing all of the wonder projects! A great way to relief stress is bubble wrap. Yes, get a roll or two, unwrap and pop one at a time of jump up and down on them. :o) Hope you sew something just for you!!!

Quilt Hollow said...

Well I sure wish that your job would slow down a bit for you so that you aren't bringing it home and you aren't so exhausted that the thought of touching your machine is a last one! Quilting is such a stress reliever for me but I do have to have energy so I completely understand!!
It was nice to see a display of your pattern designs in others quilts. Glad you had a chance to post to your blog...let us know you still kickin! Hugs!!!! Take care of YOU!!!
