It seems like it is harder and harder to find larger blocks of time to accomplish anything--even quilting. But today I spent almost all day in my sewing rooms and did the machine part of binding and sleeves on five (yes, 5) wallhangings. I am very excited! The hand part I can do in found bits of time, but it takes so long to find the right color threads, wind bobbins, blah, blah, blah when doing the machine part.
I have also designed a new project--more info on that as it becomes available. It will combine hand piecing and hand applique--and I will, of course, hand quilt mine! I will really be "speaking to the hand"! LOL several times on that one--I know you want to. Okay, so many of you are groaning--what can I say!
Lots of snow here, but I was able to diagnose the problem with my snowblower--the key (stupid plastic thing) jarred loose after 10 years of use. I mean really! So I have that wired in place now so it can't escape when I am at the far reaches of the drive. (It has electric start, but my extension cord will not reach that far--so I have to drag it back toward the house each time it quits. Great for upper body strength--not so great for the disposition.)
There should be photos in the next post. But I could feel the rumblings of "when is she going to post again?" and I am trying to forestall that.
I know I've said this before, but as the new year begins and people are more stressed than ever, with so many good reasons, I think it bears repeating:
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone is fighting some kind of battle.
It costs nothing to smile and to say a kind word. I am going to try really hard to be a blessing to others this year--will you join me?
