Bliss Quilt

Seems so long since I posted. What have I been up to?  
Well, I guess I have been pretty busy.  Just sometimes it doesn't seem like 
much is accomplished until you stand back and take a look.  

I headed back to work after the 6 week summer break. Usually by the end of 
summer I am looking forward to returning with a bit of delight, 
but not this year, summer vacation was just too short.  
Been back for almost 4 weeks now and it has been crazy busy.   

I finished a quilt for my sweet new little grand daughter.

Isn't she a little cutie? 
She is 3 months old, so I am a little slow in getting a quilt to her. 
Yes that's right, only made one quilt for her. 
As a quilting Meema(gamma) I feel shame. 
She deserves an abundance of quilts.

I had a charm pack of Bliss, and I knew my daughter would love it. 
Just went with half square triangles. A simple design and I thought the fabrics 
looked great all lined up next to each other.

Used Bliss and some of the inner border fabric for the back. Didn't get a photo

I've been working on a few more things, knitting my first pair of socks and some creations I hope to donate to my church for a fund raiser. I'll have to share when I get a little further along. 

What haven't I been working on? Some bee blocks that have me stumped 
and my Farmer's Wife blocks for the quilt along. 
I want to, I really just get stuck over choosing fabrics.  
UGH! I need to just do it already!
