First let me say that this is just a jumble of specific theme. I have no excuses for not posting anything other than I feel like I have nothing interesting to post. I am still feeling lost without my camera...but that will be over soon. We pick my daughter and husband up at the airport Friday night.

I had company from Tennessee brother and his wife. And she was my best friend before they were married. Such a nice visit. I wished it could have been longer. Sometimes I still long to live in Tennessee, yet I just don't want to live that far away from our children. So here we sit.

I have been slowly but surely making a few 9-patches every day. I am still undecided about what I am going to do with them. I will have to play around on Quilt Pro and see what I like. I have always thought I would do just a simple 9-patch quilt sometime, set on point, alternated with a plain square of fabric but maybe start out with one kind of fabric in the center and vary it as I work out.
I just wanted to share something--this is my collection of batiks in 2005! When I get my camera back I will try to spread out the collection I have now...I keep adding a half yard here and a half yard there. it still isn't a huge collection compared to some but I think I have a good start. I just have trouble using them for anything. They are just too beautiful.
