Hello friends.......................

I sure have missed you all. I have looked in on all of you, wanting to keep up, but I have so missed hearing from you and hearing your comments on my various endeavors. I have noticed lately, that a number of you have taken breaks from blogging for lengths of time, and this encourages me to believe that I can re-enter blogland after (gasp!) almost 7 months.

Y'all know ole Medusa? The chick with all the natty dreads sticking up outta her head..............well, I feel like her. My many "snakes" are each a project, either partially underway, or ones I am longing to begin, and they are all hissing, and snapping, at one another competing for my attention. Reckon I feel positively schizophrenic at times! This lack of focus has made the last year difficult because nothing has been completed. This has been the longest I have gone without a "finish", and it doesn't feel good.
I have sewn. I made my husband a lap quilt (partially hand quilted, and in the hoop), a baby quilt for an upcoming grandbaby (ready for the LAQ) and numerous other blocks that have, as yet, led nowhere

I am pleased with this block, made from a Jeanna Kimball pattern, which only lacks a birdnest to be
completed.........................that and a plan for what comes next. Any suggestions as to what should come next, to work towards a harmonious quilt? I'm stuck for the moment.

Some of you may wish to tell me that there are no blue hummingbirds. I googled, and I do assure you that they exist.

As for news, other than sewing related, we have been adopted by the daintiest little calico cat. She hides from our dogs all day long, and shows up after dark looking for her dinner. We have no idea where she comes from, and she hasn't let us get close enough to pet her. I don't know why I refer to her as "she" except she has such flirty ways. We wish she'd let us closer..........maybe in time.

I'm going to say Ta-Ra for now. I know I won't be writing every day, but I do believe I'm back for certain. Thank you all for hanging around.  Michele
