Paperwork Purgatory

It seems like I've been lost in paperwork purgatory for the last week or so.  It's tax time, don't ya know, and it seems like I have a lot more tax prep work to do this year.  BORING!  I only have one more calculation to do and I'll be ready to see the accountant.  Gosh, I'm always so happy when my part is over.  I just hope I'll be happy when his part is over!  Enough whining about that!

I'm also deep into writing new patterns this past week.  Some are my patterns, and one that I'm working on is a pattern for a ginormous project for Spring Quilt Market ~ a brand new sampler quilt pattern that 15 designer friends and I have worked on creating together!!!  It's been a wonderful experience.  All of us are well-known Civil War designers who started collaborating on this project before we even left the convention hall at last Spring's market in Salt Lake City!  I can't say anything more right now, but don't worry.....I'll be posting a lot about this project in the coming weeks, so please stay tuned.

Thankfully, paperwork isn't the only thing happening around here!  I recently asked a friend of mine, Debbie, to come and work with me since I have big plans for many new patterns, am also working on Journey Four of the Prairie Women's Sewing Circle, and have a few other surprises brewing for market, and just can't do it all myself.  Ya think??  Thank goodness for girlfriends!!  So...Deb and I dove into the pile of fabric above, which became this.....

While I'm finishing my paperwork, Deb has been working on piecing 90 Cross X blocks for a new quilt.  I adore the Cross X block so much that I've designed two new quilts with it.  I'll show you our progress in my next post.  In the meantime, I'll get back to my paperwork and hope that soon I'll be able to spend some time with my other good friend, Bernina!! 

So nice to spend a few minutes with you today!



  1. I can't wait to hear more about all the quilt projects you are working on. You never disappoint.
    Have a good day.

  2. Can't wait to see the Cross X block quilts
