Home at last

After being on the road for almost all of January (over 5000 miles in the car) I am home at last (well at least for a little while) and trying to catch up with the mountains of laundry, grocery shopping and errands.  This little project is what I took on the road with me, some happy hand applique to work on in the car during stressful times.  It is to be a surprise project but if posting spoils the surprise, well so be it cause I really have nothing else to show for my time.

This sweet little project is from the book "Critter Caboodle" by Brandywine designs and has really helped to lift my spirits.  The happy little faces make me smile as does working on a project for a special someone.
I have a few more of these blocks completed so come back soon if you want to see more.  It has been so nice getting back to the sewing room, I had forgotten how much I use my quilting as therapy!

Happy Stitching

I can sure see why those blocks make you happy--such cute and happy critters! It's my therapy too--don't know how I would manage without it. Hope you can get all caught up and back to sewing away!
