Well helloooooo there!!!

After a couple of years of humming and harring (is that even a word?) about this blog ....  PatchAndi is back and I am busting with so much crafty news to share!!

There are a million things I could tell you about in this post (including a very brief but jam-packed visit to the Houston Quilt Festival!!) but I might start by showing off a recent 'finish'. Well ... the quilt top is finished and awaiting quilting :P

My 'Groucho' quilt is the first of a series of pixelated quilts that I am planning. My husband has written some awesome software to help generate the pattern (more on that later!) Can you see his hands holding down the quilt at the bottom? He's a good man!! It was a VERY windy day.

And just so you can see how big this quilt actually is ....

I certainly have my work cut out for me with the quilting!!

It is so good to be back in this blogging world! I'm not sure how many of you are even reading this as Google Reader has disappeared since I last posted.

But if you ARE reading this ... and you blog ... and you don't mind giving me a little plug .... it would be great if you could mention to your readership that I'm back, or even just pop me back onto your blog-roll. I would be most grateful!!

Much crafty love to you!

Andi xx
