Catching Up

It's been a busy, busy month since I last posted. I had a birthday and got a job. The job is what's really keeping me busy. It's only part-time but it's the first time I've worked outside the house since before Timmy was born. And I'm on my feet the entire time so it's tiring.

I have managed to accomplish a few things though. I got finished with my Autumn Rail Fence.

It's large enough for our queen size bed and the first thing of that size that I have done decorative quilting on. You really can't see it from the front because of the patterned fabric. I did the quilting from the back.

I also put together a center block for the roosting robin my yahoo group is doing. A roosting robin is similar to a round robin except that I will be doing all the work on my own quilt myself instead of sending it around to my friends.

When I first learned to quilt I saw this block and loved it but it's applique and I was so intimidated by applique then. I'm no expert now but I am getting more comfortable doing it.

Thunder also keeps me occupied. He's grown so much. I had him to the vet last week and he weighs 24 pounds 6 ounces. He was 14 pounds 4 ounces a month ago when I had him there the first time. He's completely spoiled rotten and an absolute joy to have around.

Until next time, hugs and stitches. Jody
