I'm Back................

I have a lot of catching up to do.  I have pictures to post,  and I am sure I can figure out something to say.  In August, all I had to write about was "it was hot."  Believe me it was hot.  I just could not find anything to say except it was hot, so I decided I would wait until it was cool.  I just felt like my life was a bore. 

We have had frost the last 4 mornings.  I love it............. I can wear my sweaters and my winter clothes.  I feel like I am in heaven. 

I finished making (crocheting) a sweater and am in the process of making another, actually two, but I would guess the one won't be done until next year. 

This week I am going to try to post pictures. 

November Log Cabin
I have decided that I am going to sell some of my quilt patterns that I have created.  I have been designing quilt patterns for a number of years.  I designed them to make quilts for shows.  I may never enter another show.  I have entered quilts in shows for a number of years and it is a lot of work and my oomph seems to have gotten up and left.  I love the design process.  For those of you who don't know, in my other life, I was an architectural draftsman with certificates in civil, electronics and mechanical drafting.  I worked for the US Navy for a number of years doing facilities drafting.  I started in CAD when it first started.  I loved it then and still do.  I had my own business doing architectural remodels in San Diego.   So, designing quilts is right up my alley.  I can design many more quilts than I can ever make.   I have had requests for my patterns and thought possibly someone else might like to make them.

This pattern is 3.5 x 3.5 or a 5 x 5 log cabin block and is paper pieced

There are 196 blocks in the design.  The quilt measures approximately 59.5 x 59.5 or 85 x 85.  I have included two paper piecing patterns so you can make either size quilt.  Cost - $15 - if you are interested please contact me through my email address.

Hope all is well with you..........
