maybe they'll be done right here at home -- but either way, they are ready for me to work on!
And then, I pulled out a project that I've had spread out on the top of a Sterilite storage box since I'm not sure when. I think I started it last fall -- it's been so long since I've done any sewing that I really can't remember. It was a Kansas Troubles Project using Summer's End Charm Packs and I had pieced one 4-1/2" block and left all the pieces spread out on the box top and moved it around from the 2nd floor to the basement. Luckily, all the pieces were still together and it didn't take me too long to figure out where I had left off.
So, I made 3 more blocks in a short period of time this afternoon. There will be 12 more blocks in different colors to make and sashing strips and cornerstones and borders to add to make a little quilt 31" square. With a little luck, I'll be able to show a finished quilt top before too long. I really can't tell you how wonderful it felt to play in the studio today....but I know most of you understand!
It's supposed to storm tonight and cool off, so I suppose I'll have to do some outside work then --- unless it rains tomorrow too!
Friday my daughter will be having arthroscopic surgery on her knee -- same knee that was totally reconstructed when she was 17; they can't find the anterior cruciate ligament at all, but they're hoping that if they fix the two side ligaments (can't remember what they are called), and scrape some bone spurs off the knee, that that will tighten it up enough so they won't have to replace the acl at all. As Gilda would say, "It's always something".
Until next time, practice Random Acts of Kindness!
