Let's Play Catch Up!

This pretty plant bloomed right in the middle of the winter in the middle of the kitchen! A sweet thing with a lot of character.

I've decided~ catching up and keeping up with that kid in the middle will be impossible from here on out. Literally and figuratively. I'll spare the basketball game photos, but we did enjoy attending many this winter.
Corrie, yes this is THE Corrie of Quilt Taffy!, came to quilt group at my house! She brought her beautiful Dresdens On Top tablerunner and told us how she made it. I adore that tabelerunner. Corrie does a giveaway every Thursday on her blog, guess what for??? QUILTING FABRIC!!!
A new stitch! Crochet stitch! yes, I've loved doing Xs and Os around all the baby blankets for the last several years, BUT now I've employed a fun new stitch. I kyped this from Mary at quilt group. I think it is called the Cowboy stitch. (I never seem to be able to get good photos of the crocheted baby blankets.)
This one is of Riley Blake fabrics. A new up and rising fabric company based out of Utah.
Cowboy Stitch I love you. You go so fast too.

Stayed tuned for more: February, March, etc. EEK!~now it's May!

Take Care~~

Well I've missed you but it is fun to catch up some. I adore Corrie's table runner. Smashing really. And I love your crochet. It is fun isn't it. Glad you know you're doing well.

We could send you to your room for being an absent blogger, but since you've shown us that gorgeous crochet stitch, you're forgiven. Not to mention the super cute table runner! Glad to see you back!

Can you please point me in the direction to get instructions for the Cowboy Stitch? I can't find it online at all and it's adorable.
