Wednesday, Sept 17, 2014

Wow, I cannot believe it is over a year since I last blogged.  Sometimes life just gets in the way.

I lost several months last winter to a serious back problem.  After months of chiropractic and physical therapy, I am mostly healed.  I still need to be very conscious of what I do, no lifting, etc., but I am so much better now.

My stitching suffered some, but I am finally back to it.  I made a decision several months ago to stop making large quilts and concentrate on wallhangings and small quilts.  And also to use up a lot of my stash on charity quilts. 

I have finished Esther's Aliu's Love Entwined center and it is proudly hanging on the wall above my quilting machine.  I would like to have made the entire quilt, not just the center, but I have no room to display a large quilt and frankly, I am running out of storage space for all the quilts that I have.  And then again, there was that resolution to NOT make anymore large quilts.  I am loving the size of this piece and the fact that I get to see it every day.

I am currently working on a hand applique quilt, a free BOM from Pearl Periera at P3 Designs.  I have all the blocks done now and am almost finished with the first of the 4 borders.  I will post pictures of it next week.

That's all for now.  It feels good to be back blogging again and I will be sure to keep up with it now.

Have a great week!
