Tap, tap. Is this thing on?

Well, this is my first post in almost a year. Sorry. The quilting itch disappeared, and I haven't done much sewing in over a year. I just didn't want to, so I didn't.

I have been ready to start again, though, and got started a couple of days. I picked an easy pattern to warm up with, and grabbed an unfinished I Spy quilt I had intended it to be a western themed quilt, with the chicken wire and bandana fabric. I never did really find all the western objects to spy, but there are quite a few. Here is a close up of some of the fabrics.

I thought it was way too busy and was calling it ugly, but my grandchildren disagreed. When they would watch me, they were really loving the fabrics, so I decided to just go with the flow. Little kids don't care what I think is ugly. Below is the finished top.
And here is my sewing company. She keeps an eye on both me and what is going on downstairs from here.

If anyone is checking back over here, thanks for sticking it out!!
