I feel very honored to work on this quilt, i mean this isnt just fabric that i can replace. Its Claire's husbands shirts and if something went wrong i could never replace them. I enjoy t shirt quilts just for the simple fact that it makes you think about person who wore the shirts and the job they do, how many times has her husband saved a life, it made me think about the job firefighters have to do and also what Claire has to go through as her husband works several days in a row without coming home, as a military wife i can relate. t shirt quilts hold someones blood sweat and tears.

Where have I been these last few months....well I like to tell my kids that I am going crazy when they ask where I have been. So that's where I have been, to crazy !!! I haven't made it back yet. My husband had surgery and well like most men was a big old baby and I had to wait on him hand and foot. We are getting ready to move in just a few short weeks and my husband wants to move ourselves. I can't say I am overjoyed about that, I would much rather the movers come and deal with it. Oh and in 2 weeks my husband is having his retirement ceremony, and we have family coming from all over. I stress about the house being tip top shape when we have visitors but it just isn't happening this time. Well with all that has been going on I did manage to fit quilting in. I finished a rag quilt for a customer with all Amy butler fabrics...it's divine!!! Finished a scrappy quilt for Charisma, worked on some applique, finished a king size for my neighbor, finished the cross quilt for a gift...oh did I mention I did some applique? I love love love bunnyhill patterns so that's what I am working on. Well with out further ado here are some.pictures

So no sewing pictures today but i will share some of the pictures from my trip, i do have to say it was really strange to not do any quilting or sewing the whole vacation. I found myself alot of times thinking about what project i would work on when i got home, and i have been home for 3 days now and have i touched anything sewing wise, nope nothing, nada, but i am hoping to change that today.

So I find lost of great patterns and projects online that i always save to my computer and then i forget about them and usually never get back to them...well this time i decided i am going to print each block when it comes out and get it done that month...so i printed January's block and decided this morning i was going to make it so i can have that one out of the way. I am also on a goal this year to try and use mostly stash or scraps....no promises that a visit to the quilt store wont happen but i am trying to pull from what i already have then when i use it up i can buy more.
So here is January's block with its cute little snowman...i have a little bit more embroidery to do and i also will have to add buttons on the snowman and the door but i cant add those till after its quilted.
i also finished up month 1 of my cotton quilt club ...these little blocks drove me batty but they are done...they measure 5.5 inches and oh so cute...i love the rich reds and browns.
