getting back to quilting

I have been away from quilting and doing other things with online classes.  I like to do a lot of different things so I jump from one thing to the next.  We have had many distractions like contractors here off and on over the past several months putting in new flooring, new showers, painting, etc.

AND then there is MARCH MADNESS!!  I love watching those basketball games!!

Here is a disappearing jelly roll rails I made this last week....I need to quilt it and then I will add more about it when I finish it.....

the next photo is background strips for Regatta quilt along..............
 In one of my online classes we had an assignment for Valentine's Day.  I did this heart in my Midori notebook with watercolor and acrylic paints.  I used white gesso on the backs of each of these pages.
 I ordered some Daniel Smith dot cards and I have been doing swatches with the colors. I have also been working with my Inktense pencils but no photos.

Here are the plates from one of our favorite places to eat.  Can you guess where?
 The previous photo is from Sizzler (eating at a buffet is not very point friendly but I can keep the points within a good range by using my weekly points).........and all of this is so delicious!!

 Here is a photo of what I eat for lunch most days.  Joseph's lavash is 2 sp for one whole piece.  (I get this at Walmart)  And the Greek yogurt and turkey are no points.  I eat this with an apple and 1/2 banana.

 I will be linking to Linky Tuesday Freemotion by the River

Smiles and hugs.................Caryl


  1. You really are doing a lot of things!!! I like to have a variety of projects on the go too.
    The quilt looks so cute. I love the colors.

  2. Thanks Beth for commenting and so good to hear from you! Oh yes...journals, markers, watercolors have taken over but I really like my quilting too. It is so nice to be retired to jump back and forth with things I love to do!
