Better Late than Never

Don't you hate when a blogger gives you a sob story about why they haven't made any new posts or how busy and complicated their life is?  Well that is me.  I won't bore you with all the details but I will say that I had my entryway quilt and table still decorated with valentine themed stuff up until this past weekend.  That is so NOT like me.  I feel like a nightmare lately.  I blame my 2 kids on missions.  I'm kind of superstitious about no good deed going unpunished.  Anyway, I'm dealing with it all but there is no end in sight.
Sweet Donna at Donna's Lavender Nest included me on her 2014 Quilt Bee and this is/was my block for February.  I had to make a new block because I botched the first one.  Can you believe I botched a simple log cabin block?  February was Clover and Violet blocks.  
The March block is Amy at A Quilting Sheep.  Mostly Amy had us do the initial of our first name using Moda's letter patterns.  I found this block lots of fun to make.  
I really like to make little treat bags.  I enjoy looking at my notions or bits of fun fabrics to choose for little goody packs.  These will go along for the person hosting the bee that month.  I found it almost therapeutic to make these. 
Oh my gosh my photos are bad today.  Sorry about that.  I got Lori's latest book  mailed to me on a day I needed something fun to browse and relax reading.
I have been itching to make a quilt using Pam's navy pindot as the background fabric.  I really like this quilt in Lori's book and it is made using navy.  Maybe someday I can make it (insert sigh, poor me).

So hi to all my friends.  I'm sorry if I don't email back or pay attention to the blog world.  Blah blah blah, you don't want to hear me whine.  :-)

Of course I would listen to you whine, we all need a good whine once in a while. How lucky to be in a bee with the above ladies. The blocks and fabric picks are wonderful. Little goodie bags! That is so sweet. They will just love them. You will be back to business before you know it, hang in there

Everybody needs, and is entitled to whine every once in a while. It is good way to clear you head.

It's nice to see a post Nanette -- I've been wondering how you've been doing but didn't want to clutter up your inbox. Hope you're feeling better. Love your blocks -- the new log cabin looks perfect. Take it easy!

Ditto to everything said above! You've been missed and it's so nice to see you're back - even if for a little bit. How are your missionaries? Is Laurie okay? I'm happy to make a run up North - just tell me if she's still in the same place! You take care of yourself so you can get back to what you love! xo, Nan

Sorry you are in a slump, but I think most of us get them at some point or another. The new book you got looks very nice....so leaf through it and dream a bit and then tackle a project when your creative self comes back around!

A little whining is just fine. We've all done it! I'm thinking I should post something to my blog before Easter. If things continue to go well, I might actually get back to regular blogging in May. Hoping it's so! Keeping you in prayers. I love making things like those little treat bags.....they are therapeutic, for sure! Kinda like buying fabric as I bought some cool fabric on my visit home to Iowa and am going to make it up in your bag pattern. :-)
