An Unscheduled Break

I'm here *Waving wildly* I'm here. Wow it's been a month since my last post, I've been here just dealing with real life.
We took a much needed break and went up North to Killarney to visit our oldest son. It was a well needed time away. His place Avalon Eco Resort, is gorgeous and so peaceful.

We went kayaking a few times. Enjoyed time with our youngest granddaughter, I had to get in lots of hugs to last until Christmas.

our northern  granddaughter, she loves being outside
I finally got my Pfaff machine back after being in for repairs, this time it was gone for more than 2 months. Unreal! The good news it seems to be working correctly for the first time since I bought it new.
I pulled out my Westalee ruler toe foot and rulers and gave it a bit of a workout. I think I should have made the swirls smaller but other than that I'm happy with it. Now what do I do with this piece?
ruler work and some fmqing

I hope you have been taking some time to enjoy life and the people who are important to you.


  1. Nope I think your swirls are perfect. Gives you the less dense quilting in the outer edge.

  2. It sounds like a great break to recharge. I'm glad you got in so many hugs with your granddaughter and hooray for the Pfaff working so well!!!

  3. Glad you got away for a break and got some baby time.

  4. Gorgeous photos Cindy, and your granddaughter, WHAT a gorgeous child! I'd be hugging her all the day long too. Glad that FINALLY your machine is working correctly, WHAT a PITA it's been for you.

  5. How did I miss reading this ? And for a moment I thought you were in Killarney Ireland ! I hope you enjoyed your break and family time
