The Puzzle that drove me nuts until help came along.
Baby Ellie putting in the last piece.

I may never take it apart!

We really have some generous quilters here in blogland. I was just visiting Linda over at Stray Stitches (see my sidebar of blogs I follow) and she is being oh so generous. She is giving away a fantastic pattern called Flying Colors by Georgette Del'Orco. Not only that...but she's giving away some amazingly wonderful, scruptious fabric to make it. You'll win 5/8 yard of black fabric and then 25 (yes I said 25) fat quarters in the most lucious colors of the rainbow. Hurry on over and enter since it closes Sunday night.

I have been busy these past couple of weeks, just not sewing. A couple of our children and their families came home over the holidays and we got to spend some fun times with them. One thing we did do was put together a 1000 piece puzzle. I worked on it alone for a few days and got very little done. Then when there was more people to work on it, we whipped it out in a couple of days. So much more fun when there is more than 1 digging through all those pieces trying to figure out where each piece fits.

This week I'll be back down in the sewing room working on another Buggy Barn quilt using a star pattern and even many of the same fabrics that I've used before. This one is for a grandson who lives in California. Oh it will feel good to get back to my Viking.

Happy New Year, Lynda; I'm going back to my sewing machine again tonight as well. Just got to clear out all the Christmas decorations from my living room first. It's not as fun as decorating is it...

You go, girl! I love 1000 piece puzzles, but I do easier ones.
