I know its been awhile, I have been a very bad blogger...sorry...I did enjoy the holidays with my family...it was pretty low key and actually not very stressful. We ate like kings and enjoyed being together. I think I am finally getting back into the swing of things. I am gonna try to be a better blogger. Maybe 2012 will be a better year! lol
And so I want to share with you a little table quilt I just finished today! I saw this quilt somewhere and knew I had to repeat it, so I sharpened my think tang and got to work.... For the first time I used sequins and beads to add that "bling" to my runner. And so here you have it a few photo's! I'll be back soon. Hope you do to!

Here are a few things I have made over the past couple of weeks I have more but didn't take photo's....the photo of the Hot Air Balloon is a soar spot photo...you see we had the Spirit of Boise Balloon Festival about a week ago..the paper said it would do the night glow after sun down, so we headed out with plenty of daylight to spare and when we got there this was the only balloon left , as they did the show early and the other balloonist was packing up....I was so upset and then to boot some guy ran across my shot! Bad night indeed. Oh well...we then piled the kids in the car and headed to Rockies Diner and sucked down some fabulous Shakes.
The photo uptop of my blog is one that we took on our little "staycation" a few weeks ago....we headed out to Lowman and then onto Stanley, Ketchum and Sun Valley Idaho...well we saw this little carve out along the road and thought what a gorgeous picture that would make! And I think so! What do you think? Those are the Grand Jean Mountains. Total Beautiful Idaho! Enjoy.

I am a bad blogger, but first let me explain.....I was busy Lobbying for the rights of the Developmentally Delayed ... our legislative session just let out and so now I am free again. So they decided to take an ax to the programs for the disabled but there were to many of us fighting for them and boy did we put up a fight....they did rethink alot of the cuts but in the end they did more harm then good. They took away all the dental benefits for the Disabled. SIGH......how could they??? Okay okay so now that you know what has consumed me I want to show you what I have been working on this weekend!!! Okay So there is a cybercrop going on until tonight midnight at my site Chattyscrappers.net and here is what I have done so far:

Oh I can't tell you how nice it has been to get sewing again! Recently I have been having fun researching Civil War Quilts and so my bff , sister and I and the girls all loaded up in the car a couple of saturdays ago and went Quilt Shop hopping. Well at one of the shops we found this very cute table runner and it was using Charm packs. Well the sign said, buy a charm pack and get the pattern for free! We put down our $9 plus tax and got our free pattern and away we went. I purchased some Civil War Replica fabrics ....of course!~ Anyway the girls all came over last night and we started our tops....today I finished mine! I still have to back it and quilt & Bind but I will probably do that tomorrow! Would today but I have to go out to the shop and its about to storm and i am a big Chicken! LOL So for now here is the top....the picture , well its from my cell phone.....To lazy to grab the Rebel....
