Long Time Gone

Hello blog readers (are you still there?) ! I've missed you! It's taken me a while to readjust to things after our move and not having all of my creative supplies at hand (they live in the garage now) has slowed down my creating a bit. But I have been able to get back in a the sewing saddle for a few projects.

My daughter Maggie had a "Walk Through the Revolution" program at her school and needed a costume to wear to be a colonial girl.
 I found a simple pattern and a cute little blue floral print at Hobby Lobby. I actually had a two-fold purpose for this costume. Next year my other daughter, Sophie will go on a pioneer trek with our church youth. She needs pioneer clothes, so I wanted the dress to be able to be used for her too. So it's not overly "colonial" but I thought she looked pretty cute. I'll just make Sophie a pioneer bonnet and we'll be set! I love killing two birds with one stone, whoop!
The class did an awesome job and Maggie's part went well too. Such a cute program and we were just glad Maggie got to be a girl, when Sophie did it in 5th grade she had to be a general! :)

I also had a chance recently to catch up on bee blocks. Specifically the Faith Group blocks for Do. Good Stitches. I haven't signed up for any bees or swaps for a few months, but I couldn't drop my Faith group! They were very understanding and Debbie even made my blocks for me in August, awesome.

 The September "block" was actually a row quilt! So each of us did a row for the quilt. I chose to do a classic Lemoyne Star. Not hard to do, but visually appealing. Each person in the group chose a different row so I can't wait to see how they all look together.
For October the block was more improvisational. I actually prefer to use a pattern with set measurements and I'm not a big fan of "wonky", but these were actually fun to make. It's great to use up scraps and it actually wasn't too hard to figure out. Mine are not as wonky as some, but I think it will work.

When the blocks are all put together the quilt will look something like this. Cool, right?

It sure felt good to do some sewing again, so good that I recently signed up for two swaps, yikes! The Doll Quilt Swap 14 and 4 x 5 Quilting Bee that I have joined before. I hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew, especially facing the holidays. But I think I can do it, it's good to be back!

I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
