The things you find..
Today I am not at the Judy Twitty embellishment workshop. My hands started doing the dropsey thing last night and today I'm poking one fingered at the keyboard. I considered going and watching but decided I really needed to jsust rest. Maybe when I'm feeling better I can convince one of the other guild members to give me a crash course.
Clearing space in the quilting room is taking more time and energy then planned. I find myself tryng to finish things (it only needs binding....,) package projects (if I have the right fabric to put sashing between these blocks they would make a quick quilt...) or just reminising (this is the box of miscel. thimbles I bought in South Carolina at the little antique shop....) This means I've been in the quilt room for almost two days and have only one...that's right...one box - a large box - of stuff to get rid of. If I was on that TV show that forces people to get rid of clutter I would flunk! I just am not making progress and now with the MS kicking back in it seems almost insurmountable...alright, no more whining.
The photo is of 12 of the blocks I made during a year long class with Mimi Dietrick in Maryland. It was a great class. There are six half-made blocks...I think I was trying to finish 16 total. Now, I will finish two of the half-baked ones, put in sashing and call it a quilt...ah, well, a quilt top!
