For the love of solids

I'm still around and kicking. I have been adjusting to my new job at work and let me tell it some days it has been completely overwhelming. Some days I just come home make dinner for my family and head right up to bed.

This has made my quilting take a backseat for the past three weeks, but I'm getting back into the swing of things.

I had signed up a while back for The Love of Solids swap and this is my large item I made my partner.  I hope she loves it. I really like that pop of red in the middle. I think it goes well with the water colors. What I was going for was the blues and greens being water and the color in the middle being like an umbrella. Anyway it's going out this week. Although probably on the last day to ship.

I mentioned I was a bit behind and I'm hand quilting this with pearle cotton thread. Which I love but since I have been going to bed at 8pm it's not getting done as fast as I wanted. Luckily I only have 4 more blocks to quilt.
In other fun news I have a MacBook Pro to play with. It's a perk from my job and I think I'm going to have to actually buy one. For the first couple days I felt like I was never going to figure it out but slowly I'm finding I love it more than my HP. Oh my Apple here I come.

Love your quilt! Didn't know you had a blog - now I have another one to follow! I worked with PCs and Macs and would love to have a Mac of my own. You'll enjoy it when you get used to it.
