Have you heard of the saying; life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer you get to the end the faster it goes.

Life seems to be going at breakneck speed and the days fly by with so much to do.

Since my last post there have been two International Quilt Markets. I traveled to one of them and made new patterns and quilts for both.

My son got married to a beautiful girl.

A new grand baby is on the way. I had no involvement with that one ;-)

I took my horse Boaz to a three day horse clinic and learned so much about horsemanship.

Traveled to Oregon to teach during the Sister’s Show.

Went on a women’s pack trip into the Bob. (Bob Marshal Wilderness) Came off Dillon and hurt my bumm.

On Labor Day, my horse Boaz died. I grieved terribly. He was that once in a lifetime horse that I bonded with. He would see me and come running across the field as if to say; where are we going? Lets go!

Eventually found a new horse, Tobiah is his name, which means the Lord is good.

He is a good boy but not my Boaz. Maybe with time.

I try to ride Dillon and the new guy when I can but we have had rain, rain and more rain. Some snow and ice and mud. When it isn’t muddy it is raining again.

I’m working on getting my new patterns written and printed and online.

This is Adalynn’s Garden quilt pattern introduced at Spring Quilt Market. It is named after my 2 year old granddaughter.

The fabric is from Robert Kaufman and is a mixture of floral prints and batiks. A beautiful combination.

Another colorway

Enjoy! You can find the patterns here. You will also see a third color way in this design on the pattern’s page. Let me know what you think.

    So glad to see a post on your blog! So sorry to hear about Boaz. I am quilter/horse person too and am awaiting the day that I can afford a horse again! I borrow other people’s horses and saddles and ride a couple of times of week and I love it! Please post some pics of your ponies along with your beautiful quilts. Love that purple and green colorway. Thanks

    Hello, Elisa; I miss you. I know you’ve been busy, but hope you’re OK. I don’t remember if I have told you that I have discovered I am both lactose and gluten intolerant, but not as seriously celiac as you. You are an inspiration to us all. Keep posting somehow, please. Sorry about your Boaz. Let Dillon into your heart, now, because that will help, and he will come to love you as well. Love your ideas and color/fabric choices. Jane
