And you thought I was gone...

Nope, just wandered off for a sec, but I am back. I did some made sewing for a few weeks and can't wait to show my work to everyone.

This wonderful stack of blue blocks really have caught my fancy. Wait till you see it all together- very exciting for me!

Check this one out. This- this- I repeat is not mine. This was made by Jacquie from Tall Grass Prarie Studio blog. You may recall that August was my month for the Common Threads quilt bee. I sent everyone fabric and asked them to create a treehouse inspired block. Boy did her's come out great.

I have to admit, this one is a pretty hard challenge. In fact, I am even a little nervous sinking my teeth into this theme. Jacquie really helped kick it off for me though and I can't wait to get mine together.
So tomorrow I'll be back to show more progress on the blue quilt above and some other projects. Thanks for sticking with me!
