Hi everyone. I have to say I am overwhelmed with the kind words and expressions of sympathy I have gotten from my blogging community in the past couple of weeks. To say that I appreciate it doesn't quite express the level of gratitude I feel towards all of you who took the time to say you cared and had my family in your thoughts and prayers.
I have had a hard time focusing and concentrating on things, but I believe I am getting a bit better. My new planner/organizer has been a distraction. I also have gotten interested in paper crafting, and have made a few greeting cards with my sister Andrea's Sizzix machine (on loan). Honestly, if I got into paper crafting at the same level as I am into quilting I am sure we would be on the dole in our retirement years! Those are two expensive hobbies! I will share more about that in a future post.
One thing thing that has snapped me out of my doldrums is that I received two quilts back from Mary of Quilt Hollow, who quilts for me. These are Mary's photos below.
This small quilt has been quilted with a design of sunflowers all over it. I can't wait to get this one trimmed and bound and on my porch, or maybe even on my dining room table. I will definitely share some photos of it when I get it finished and situated. How awesome is that quilting design?
This is Bow Ties. I admit I jumped this one way ahead in the quilting queue! This is my fall/winter cuddle quilt, and I need it NOW even though the temps are around 100. This is my Bwankie.
For now, so long, and I will be back to share my doings on a much more regular basis. Thanks again for your support and patience and I get through this experience.
