Heavenly Chocolate Bliss

It was bliss for me, when I opened my email the other day...

A few years ago, I taught a class for this quilt.
Stephanie was one of the gals in the class.
We were co-workers at the time, then she moved away.
Fast forward a couple of years, and she sends me these photos.

 Isn't it just fabulous?

Steph is an incredible seamstress, but she hadn't done much quilting...
Her talent shows thru, and her quilting looks great!
I can't tell you just how thrilled I am.

 Here is Steph in class with her first Choco Bliss quilt. All pieced by the end of the classes!
She is amazing that's for sure.

That reminds me...
I have a second one in my PIGS (projects in grocery sacks) pile.
After having to empty my sewing room, I found all my little hiding places, which was a little shocking I must admit!
I'm happy to report, it's all put back together and I have only a few more boxes of fabric that I need to put away. And of course the forever straightening out things!
Look, there are no more holes in the walls
or chopped up carpet!

I love the Wainscot paneling
(my replacement window and window sill will be in later this week)

It was kind of fun to go thru things...
Changing up the quilts hanging, makes such a big difference.
My Mardi-Gras quilt looks so good, with the paneling. 

International Sun Bonnet Sue found a new home too.
I'm surprised at just how much exposure she has gotten.
There has been a lot of traffic on Pinterest, on her lately.

All I need to do is roll in my office chair and I am back in business.
Life is good!
