Back to Blogging

Hi everyone! Well, I'm back. I've had a horrible time with a spider bite of all things and haven't been able to blog, type, sew and for a while even pull up my own pants! Thanks to those of you who asked after me because I was gone! I really appreciate it and love you too! XOXOXO I'm working again and feeling fine. I really missed blogging. You know, I could write for hours about how much we take for granted.

I have some exciting news! My friend Karen Walker of Laugh Yourself Into Stitches blog has joined the Craftsy designers and is offering a pattern for her amazing Pumpkin Spice pattern!

What makes this pattern so special (in addition to the fabulous colors) is Karen's easy, quick way to make half-square triangles! I don't know about you, but I can think of about a million things to make with half square triangles and love having a fast way to make them! 

 You can find Karen's pattern HERE. I love making triangles with NO BIAS SIDES! WOOT! Karen's name probably sounds familiar because she is a fabulous machine quilter!
Karen has an exciting new project that she will be announcing soon! I'll be sure to let you know as soon as I can!

It's good to be back! I wish I had been able to talk to you all over the last long weeks! I missed you! XOXO and cheery wave from Bev

I have had you on my mind all day! I was going to try to find your email addy and check on you! I am so happy to see you check in. :-) And I'm glad to read the spider bite ordeal is behind you! Love the autumn quilt.

So glad you are back. Sorry I haven't checked on you again but John's treatments have really been consuming all of our time. But, glad you are feeling better and well enough to work and blog.

I got your phone number from Brenda and tried to call you and it said it was not a working number??

I'm so glad you are back! That nasty bite, was it a brown recluse?

That fall quilt is so pretty! So glad you are ok! My mom was bitten a couple of years ago in her leg and it took over half a year to heal. Wishing you a wonderful week!
hugs, Elsina
