Meet Josephine!

I was 4 years old when my mom purchased this beauty!  I finally got her all refurbished and she works like a charm!!  I learned to sew on 'Josephine'.  Josephine is my mom's middle Josephine is named after her. 

Long Time - No Post

 Yes it's been ages since I blogged.......sorry.....but I've had a spot of bother.   I had surgery for my Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.....and leading up to the surgery my hand hurt a bit and now I'm recuperating.....but it's all going to be so much better!!!  Now here is the "Sparkle" quilt top assembled to the point of ready to batt and quilt.  And I was practicing up on my free motion quilting until this surgery thing I have to wait a bit longer to start the practicing again.
 The First Back Segment is assembled & the Second one too.....just couldn't locate a photo - which I know I hhave!!!....somewhere....
 Then in between all of the above I've been captured by the 'English Paper Pieceing' technique.  It's a great hand project that is so very portable.  I'm in the process of converting my scraps into hexagons and am saving them up for a number of ideas.
 It's so relaxing for me to just sit and cover 'petals' while watching TV in the evening
or if I'm out and find myself waiting around for this that or the other I have a little kit in my purse just to take out and entertain myself......someday I'll have a finished product - or not!
