Quilting is my passion. The ability to be creative with colorful fabric just makes me smile. Of course, equally joyful is the love of my grandchildren. What could be better?
Food for thought.
Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

Per your request, plus.....
Here are all eight of the Beyond the Cherry Tree Album Quilt blocks thus far.
I am running out of design wall space, so I will be taking these down for the time being. There will be a total of 25 blocks, PLUS a viney border with cherries all the way around. I may never get to see this up on the wall again. Hmmmm...how am I ever going to decide how to lay it out? Oh well, time will tell.
Now for the plus....there are a few bloggers who are working on Dear Jane. I started mine quite awhile ago, but keep putting it away to work on something more pressing. I jokingly say that I will be taking this one to the "home" with me, but I have been re-inspired after seeing Doreen's from http://auntreensplace.blogspot.com/ and her goal of having it done by March of 2011. I bow down to her for such a lofty goal.
Anyways, I got mine out to see just where I was at; and this is what I have, although on my check off list, I show that I have another three or so floating around somewhere, so I am going to have to do some hunting.
I have one block that I didn't sew according to the pattern (the bottom one) and I am thinking of re-doing it, but for now, I am thinking of keeping these up on the design wall to keep me motivated and just maybe I will work on a block or two every once in awhile to reach my goal of completion....maybe before the "home".
I am known as Mimi by my four grandsons. They are 13, 10, 8 and 3 1/2 years old. They are what life is all about. I recently retired from my office job. Now I am just loving being a grandma who loves to quilt and is once again dabbling in knitting, I am a longarmer and an APQS retailer. I can see retirement being very busy!
