Blogging Break…

I have decided to take a Blogging Holiday…I’m not sure for how long but just need a little time to recharge the ol’ blogging batteries.  I will still be popping in on you all the time, after all once a blog lurker, always a blog lurker…!!:o)

Before I go…I need to share a picture with you…(this is after all a quilting blog)!!

My daughter, the quilter, :o)))) finished off another raw edged appliquéd runner…this time for herself!!

Dang sweet!!  And doesn’t it look cute on her orange chair!  Yup…she definitely has the quilting bug!!  And I am lovin’ it!

You can find the FREE tutorial HERE!!…You could whip one up for yourself or for your mom…Mother’s Day is just around the corner…trust me, SHE will absolutely LOVE IT!! 

You take care and hope you get to enjoy some sunshine today…it’s a gorgeous SUNNY day here on our little island!

Have a magical Monday and Happy Quilting!~P

  9. Hurry back, I still enjoy lurking on your blog. Grandmas get busy with lots of other stuff, so it's not easy to keep up with a blog, and do it as well as you do. Life is too important to miss out on any of the moments that make it worthwhile, so congratulations on making your decision, and I know you won't regret it. Enjoy!

  17. I just came back from an 8 month blog break!!! I just didn't have it in my anymore. Also, I wasn't really creating a lot so I felt it was time to step away. You'll come back when you're ready! Plus it's fun not to have to worry about what you're going to say each time. AND you get to visit whoever you like in blogland!! Take care and enjoy your break :)

  21. I can certainly understand why you might need to take a break for awhile, but no more morning visits with sweetp? Whatever will I do! I love your sense of humor which makes your blog so much fun to read. Not to mention I love every single project you share, and all your garage sale finds? Oh my! Thanks for all the smiles and laughs. Have fun getting ready for that new grandbaby, get lots of R&R, but come back soon!
