Okay, I am going to give blogging here a chance. I love My Quilt Blog but a lot of my quilting friends are coming over here so I will try to give them both a shot.

Hubby went to Boise yesterday. His Father, who is 92, is giving him his travel trailer. It is twice the size of ours with a bathroom and large closet so should be better in the long run. It has been sitting for 3 years at my Bro-in-laws ranch so I imagine that cleaning it is going to be a chore. As long as my lounge chair and fly fishing pole fit in it I will be fine!! There are so many places to explore in the Northwest and I am so looking forward to spending time doing just that.

The quilt I am working on right now is another Gloified Nine Patch pictured above. My sister is being really firm with not giving the first one back that I made. lol She is my very biggest fan and sends me fabric and batting regularlly so I can't complain.

Another thing I want to work on is scrap quilting. I mean really letting go. So many people from MQB have inspired me give this a try. Looking at my body of work, I am a very concise and controlled quilter. I have to consult my color wheel, look at texture, fuss with the fabric for 2 weeks and then and only then can I do a test block. 90% of the time it gets tossed to the UFO pile. Don't you think I really need to get over this obsessed crap??? Can you tell I am retired fromt he military?????
Happy Quilting All, MaryMM
