Take a Stitch Tuesday

I did reactivate my blog to do the 12 month CQ blocks, but am going to also do the Take a Stitch Tuesday that Sharon B. has on her site It is going to be a little hard the first month or two as we should be moving into our new home that is the result of having lost everything in the Texas wildfires that hit our county, Bastrop, September 4. We have had to move several times since due to various problems and I must say this has definitely been a growing experience for us. Even though hard, it has been full of blessings. It has caused my husband and I to really get back to what is important in our lives. We do know that we are on the downhill run of our lives and we want to make the most of the days we have left. I have reevaluated what I really want to spend my spare time on and it is definitely CQ and more handwork. I have done many single blocks but not a total top. This will make me focus on doing that. The TAST will help me expand my stitches which I plan on adding to whatever block I am working on. I am so looking forward to this. I have the fabrics I plan on using and will post photos when I get back to our RV where they are stored. We are at our daughter's home as we lost heating in the RV due to a mouse building a nest in the heater fan. One of the many living problems we have faced! Anyway, this too will pass and soon we will be settled. Can't wait!!!

New start

Here I am after almost 2 years ready to get back into my blog. What brought this on? I want to join Sharon's TAST and need a place to show what I am doing. Let's see if I can make a go of it this time! Since I am still a nomad due to the wildfires in central Texas September 4, it will be a little hard for me until we get settled into our new home. Hopefully, this will be the first of January. Stay tuned.
