Still Pluggin Away

I'm still plugging away on my Trees quilt.  Little by little, it is coming together.  Who knows, maybe I will be able to get the borders on it this week......"God willing and the creek don't rise!"
I have to say, putting the last inner border on has been some peaceful and easy sewing.  The end is in sight! 

Piecing this quilt has been a journey.  There are a whole lot of emotions sewn into this baby.  I'm ready to have this top finished and to move on to the quilting.
Happy Monday!

A Little Independent Sewing

Happy 4th! 

What better way to celebrate but to start the day with a little sewing.

I have been away from my blog for an extended period of time.  In fact I haven't done any significant sewing in over a year.

Life "happened" to me in a big way the last few of years.  I got divorced, went back to work full time, lost my daddy and a job, got a new job, had my heart broken, picked myself back up and found a way to be happy.
And I'm here to tell you that going through hard stuff does make you strong in the end but going through it does suck. 

This quilt has been a work in progress for way too long.  I'm thinking I need to finish it. 

Happy sewing today!
