Tap, Tap, Tap...Is this thing on....

Why, hello there Blogland.  Is anyone still out there?

Hellloooooooooo from Remy
You may have thought I was abducted by aliens.

Which is perhaps more likely than previously as Roswell is only 190 miles (as the alien flies) from here (yes, this X-Files mega-fan will be making a road trip there once the weather is nicer. You can bet your replica Scully FBI badge on that).

In (boring) actuality, I just got busy with the holidays and work and then recovering from working during the holidays. And I spent some time trying to figure out what I was going to do with myself in 2015 as the past two years were such a crazy whirlwind.

And well here I am.

Everyone is fine here at Stella Bella Quilts.  The cats are as spoiled and happy and cute as always.

I finished a couple of little wool appliqué projects

A Primitive Gathering pincushion from 2011

and a green (alien??) owl pincushion from Guildcrafters quilt shop in Michigan.  Also an older-ish project I found while packing-unpacking.

I've been working away on the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt and need to finishing sewing blocks and rows together.  Photo hopefully soon :)

I decided to break down and cut into a bundle of French General fabric that I have been hoarding for awhile and start a new project. It's mostly the Rouenneries Deux line and I just adore this line.  Why is it so difficult to actually use the fabric you love the most??!?!?!?

Woke up to a beautiful snowy morning today (my day off YAY!) so I'm spending the day working on my new project and planning which of the new sew-alongs I want to jump into.  And hoping my blogging mojo is back.
