Long time no see

Well it has been an awfully long time since I last posted here but I switched to Instagram (annsombel) a couple of years back (December 2016 to be exact) as I encountered some problems with posting on Blogspot and I didn't always know what to say.

I kept following all of you who also have Instagram profiles but I admit that I'm missing the rest of you so ... I'll be posting here sometimes (let's say once a month or maybe a bit less) to keep you updated :-).

Summary of what I've been doing in a nutshell (longish text so skip this if you don't feel like it :-): 

Beginning of 2018: Moncarpacho workshop by Willyne Hamerstein
(from her Millefiori Quilts 3 book)

April 2018: start on "Doing the Rounds" by Thimblestitch - more or less halfway through now

July 2018 - October 2018: SAL 100 Modern Quilt Blocks by Tula Pink
(still have to sew all the blocks together but some block changes  are still possible 
- due to me not being entirely happy with some of the fabrics)

for the moment - due to all those teeny tiny pieces

August 2020: non quilting - start on 4 seasons cross stitch sampler by Marjolein Bastin / Lanarte

(first time sewing with vinyl)

June 2021: holiday prepping for Stars-a-Day quilt (cutting fabrics).

N.B.: pictures were all taken from my Instagram account

Conslusion: lots of starts in 2020 ... not so many finishes ;-)! 
I can truly say that quilting has again become an important part of my spare time after re-discovering it after a long hiatus and cross stitch has been way less because there's unfortunately only a couple hours a day/week to spend on hobbies and crafts..

If you want to know more about my exploits the last couple of years, you can always head over to my other account ;-). 

See you soon here or there ;-)!
