Life is good...

Hi Friends! 
Are you following the Christmas Blog Hop???
 Rhonda from Farmhouse Threads has organized and it started on Oct. 3rd. She said her kits are flying off the shelves... her design is so cute! My block is finished and I will get to reveal it on Oct. 24th. Make sure to look at my previous blog to see all the designers involved. 

I've been doing a little (bunches!) of organizing. This is a picture of the closet in my sewing room. Why is it closets are never big enough? This one is filled to the top. I have lots more storage bins in the garage full of fabric. I believe that one can never have too much fabric. I remember when my mother was alive she told me "Joyce, I bet you have a thousand dollars worth of fabric there"... LOL oh if she only knew. Mom didn't sew. But she was right I did have a thousand dollars worth of fabric..and maybe a bit more.

After organizing my closet I decided it was time to start a new quilt project. I love half-square triangles. I can't wait to show you all what's coming next in this design.. any ideas?

I went to Utah Quilt Fest and had a wonderful time. This is a quilt I designed called "Aunt Sarah Jane" my good friend and part sister Krisanne Watkins was given this quilt from the Quilt Guild Board. It was her gift for being a Past-President of the Quilt Guild. 

Okay friends I have now blogged twice in the last few weeks.. Life is good!

Little did Mom know, and it was probably for the best.
I have no clue what you are making, but I already love it! Can't wait to see more.
Great shot of you and Krisanne. She is a sweetheart!
Oh, I'm in the photo, too. Those are my fingers on the left side. *LOL*

Greetings! I just discovered your blog and I love it. And really enjoyed reading about the tied quilt your grandma made. Those old quilts are a treasure! I'm going to look for you on facebook as well. Peace and Joy to you and yours. Julie
