Hectic House

Still no time for quilting! I've been helping my sons get settled into a new apartment together. My youngest son totaled his truck on Friday night. He's fine and so is the other driver but now we need to help both sons find cars for winter driving. Anchorage is not the most friendly public transportation city in the world...especially compared to Paris! And winter is coming soon to Alaska!!!

I've been concentrating on house projects: varnishing window sills that weren't finished in the building process, scheduling work for my handy-man, still unpacking from last summer's move and new furniture issues. 

But first...there is another version of my design, "Batiki Argyle," on the blog, mmmquilts

Seeing other people bring my pattern to life is so very exciting. It makes me want to post more of my quilt designs on my blog and I do have that as a goal...I'm just not sure how to make that happen living between two sewing rooms that are thousands of miles apart. When I'm in Alaska I am too busy to sew and when I'm in Paris, I have a very limited amount of quilting stuff at my disposal.

I did get the binding on, "Jelly Jive," and got it washed up. It's a sweet quilt that I am thinking of taking back to Paris for snuggling on the couch.

You have been busy! Glad that your son and the other driver were not hurt - that's the important thing - vehicles can be replaced. Do you have a pattern source for Jelly Jive? I think it would be a great cuddle quilt for gifting.
