Surprise!

Hi Friends!  Yes, I'm still alive and kicking...it's been almost a year since I've posted on my blog!  A lot has happened in the last 10 months or so.  Unfortunately, not a lot of sewing and quilting happened.  We moved from Virginia in April and we were in transition for most of the summer.  We finally moved in to our new house in California in July.  After unpacking, it took some time to get my "mojo" back when it came to quilting.  It's finally coming back little by little and I'm happy about that.

After skipping the mystery last year, I decided to jump on board with Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt this year called "On Ringo Lake."  I figured that was a good reason to pop on here and blog about it and also to reconnect with all my blogging friends.

I finished Step One today and I loved it.  Mini 3" nine patches are my all time favorite block, so I was happy to see that was our first clue.  Love all these little cuties!!


So for a quick recap of the last year or so...Travis retired from the Air Force after 32 years of active duty.  It was a happy time...the Air Force has given us great life and we're forever grateful for the opportunities we've had and the precious friends we have all over the country.  

The biggest event of the year for us was the wedding of our son, Zach.  His wife, Harleigh, is a sweetheart and she is perfect for him.  We are so blessed to have her join our family! 

After the wedding, we were finally able to move in to our cabin in the mountains of California.  It's a beautiful place to live!


Thank you to those of you that are still here with me!  Life doesn't always go the way we think it will and we have more changes coming in the near future...I'll keep you posted along the way!

Until then, Happy Quilting!
