I saw this morning that I had a comment from someone in Bucharest!!! I am excited!!! I know I haven't been blogging much lately, and I apologize for that. I had family here last week and before that cleaning house and preparing for their arrival. Then, I had to rest up after hosting Thanksgiving here and all the standing I did during that time. It hurts me, as you who have been following my blog, and/or know me, to stand on my feet much. With RA and fibromyalgia, I am hurting somewhere all the time, but if I do much, I pay for it for several days. Anyway, off of that subject, I am considering having a giveaway soon. But, one thing has to happen before I do. I have to reach 50 followers!!! I know there are people out there who read my blog, but are not followers. When I get to fifty, I will gift some lucky person with a couple of fat quarters!!!! Who will the lucky person be?
I have also been busy making a Crazy Shortcut Quilts quilt for a lady in Virginia. I am to the point of quilting each square with decorative stitches. She is loving it from afar, so I pray she loves it when she gets it. :0) She has also commissioned two sofa pillows that are really embellished for her sofa. To be honest, I have NEVER made these before. I have started collecting lace, and other trinkets to put on them, but I am trying to learn how to do these. I want to do a really great job on them, so keep your fingers crossed. I even have a couple of people sending me things that they have leftover from their projects. I am so excited!!!! I don't know how to embroidery by hand, but I'm reading and watching videos on the Internet trying to learn as much as I can. My sewing machine has embroidery type stitches on it, too, so I will be using it to help. Any suggestions are appreciated.
I have a few more pictures that I can show you of the progress on the crazy quilt.

I wish you all a great day. Be creative! Make someone happy. Share a smile!
