My Last Post.... from St Charles

It cant be my last post ever because the reason I started this blog was to keep in touch with friends from the US.

Last week before I gave my machine away I started a new project. I decided to do a small log cabin quilt.

Yes Nancy I can see you look in horror. I am paper piecing. I started with 1 inch strips and I am not the most accurate 1/4 inch sewer so I decided to go the paper piecing way. This project has been put away in the shipping boxes never to be seen again. Seriously I hope to see it again but who knows when the boxes will arrive and how long it will take to unpack my sewing stuff.

The movers arrive tomorrow. I am not looking forward to the next few days. I hope to post occasionally on our travels.


  1. ARGGG!!!! Paper piecing.... It looks good so far...just think...all of your sewing stuff will be "brand new to you" when you unpack it..

    Good luck tomorrow...

  2. I wish you safe and well travels, and hope you get settled in quickly!

    Log cabin is one of my favorites. I"ve always said that if I were to make one, it would be paper pieced!

  3. Have a safe trip and a wonderful holiday back home! I'll miss running in to you in the quilt shops, but look forward to reading your blog to find out what you're up to!

  4. Good for you for trying something new. It looks really good. You will rediscover it all when you unpack and find things forgotten. Have a super safe trip. I look forward to hearing from you from you and checking out your blog. Merry Christmas!
