Hello! Can you see me? I've been

Hiding under a mountain of quilts!  A good thing?  Yes, but it's kept me far, far away from the blogging universe!  I've been wanting to write, to keep you all in the loop of this crazy life, but it's just been so, well, crazy!  I never thought that my Memory Quilts would be quite so popular, I was wrong.  For the last six months, I've been trying to keep up with the orders as well as homeschooling and cleaning the home.  As my family can attest, I haven't been the best.  Oh, and don't forget, I moved in August as well!  So, on top of everything else, we've been unpacking.  My wonderful family actually came up for a weekend, in their RV, and helped me to organize the weekend before Thanksgiving.  This was a huge help as I was hosting the family meal the following weekend!  It is my hope to start blogging a bit more regularly!  I am aiming for at least once a week.  We'll see how well that works!

Here are some pictures of what I've been doing these last few months!

I finally finished this quilt for my cousin after sending it out to a longarmer for the quilting.  Hand stitching the binding of a king sized quilt is no small task!

Participated in a small swap on flickr.  This is what I sent out:
Again, another swap:
 Pattern tested this lovely bag for Anna of charmedliebling which I gave to my sister for her birthday:
 Made this cute clutch for a custom order for a woman who loves dachunds:
 And this bag for another customer:
 Made this noodlehead clutch for my daughter for her birthday:

 Made this set for a sewing room swap:

Pattern tested this wonderful bag for Sara of Sewsweetness, gave it to my Mom for her birthday:

(Said birthday girl, hehe!) My sister threw her a surprise party!  It was totally awesome!

Made this wonderful tote for another swap:

My hubby built these for me.  One is a cutting table (not pictured) and this is my ironing table. I absolutely love it!

Made this table runner for Thanksgiving:

Here it is again with the pies I made for Thanksgiving:

One of five embroidery sayings for a set of memory quilts:

Two infinity scarves for my nieces:

A birthday party for my second daughter:

On the same day we had Christmas with my mom:

Whipped these up for my little guy, but he's too big.  Oh well, in to the bag for my newest niece/nephew to arrive late May!

A Christmas Swap:

A picture of one of the many quilts for customers.  I don't know what I did with the rest of the photos...

So, there ya have it.  My goal this month is to finish my current orders.  Though, for the A Lovely Year of Finishes Challenge for January, I am posting this little guy:

It is for the Sew Sew Modern Swap hosted on flickr.  I am excited to make this as I have one of my own and love the bag!

I'm linking up over at Fiber of All Sorts!
