I'm still here....

It's so long since I've made a posting; and I can't show what I've been up to. I've been sewing like mad, some very late nights; to get a secret project in the mail by the due date. I made it, however have nothing to show but bags under my eyes and a big mess to clean up so that I have room to start again. Is it keeping out of mischief or creating our own? Oh well, there are worse things we could be doing.
On the minkee front, I'm afraid they were pushed to the backbenches; however the green bears get carted around when I'm sitting waiting for kids etc. so there has been progress on their faces, and there are only ?? of the flower blocks that require their centres stitched on and all those blocks will be ready to be sewn together for the pink and white quilt.
I uploaded a photo of a kaleidoscope quilt I made as part of a workshop my quilt group did. It was a great experience to share and we were all amazed at the designs we turned out. My quilt started out as a piece of fabric with ships on it. If you look closely you can see a whole ship floating amongst the swirls hence naming the quilt "Lost at Sea". I thoroughly enjoyed making this quilt and would like to do it again.
On the blog front, Crafty Giveaways is having yet another giveaway in her attempt to make some room.
Hopefully won't be so long between posts next time.
Till then; "happy stitchin".

I'm currently looking at fabric to do another one. Just can't help myself.

That is a beautiful quilt, love the colour mix. I'm full of admiration for people who are prepared to put in so much time, I fear that I'm just too impatient.
