I've had three friends who have experienced the passing of their fathers. I have dealt with my own family trials. And I fret about my husband who has to travel on slick, snowy, wintry roads.
And then there's the change in administration in D.C., but I won't even go there.
So what am I doing to distract my mind? Going to my happy place, of course. My sewing studio!!!
I did get this top pieced together. The fabric for the backing is lying below. It's on my To Do List for this week to get it quilted and bound. I've had this pattern and fabric for about three years, so it seemed to be a good time to get 'er made! Oh - and you can see on my design wall, I actually have another scrappy quilt assembled and ready to sew on some sashing strips.
I've also been working on Pat Sloan's 182 Day Solstice QAL. Just finished Block 6. Here's how they are coming together:
So far, so good! It is always interesting to fully trust a Mystery QAL. It goes against my nature - I want to see what the finished product is, and I want to see it now. Having to wait is a killer.
Quilting with a smile,
