The holiday "blur" left my head this morning. I've been feeling so under the weather for 2 weeks that the thought of even posting was out of the question. This morning the fog lifted--quit drinking the mushroom tea that was supposed to be great for my flu and took a teaspoon of B-12 instead and drank my usual coffee. It seemed like my head cleared and I'm getting back to my former form! So much for what's supposed to be good--well my sis can take it all she wants, but I think I'll politely decline!
I did get a set of quilts to the Project Linus deposit place here in Northern Utah:
I had some fabric that I purchased at the beginning of 2012. It was such a bargain, but after I got it here, I wasn't too enthralled. I threw it in a drawer and it happened to be next to a blue that I wasn't too fond of either--so much for some online shopping.
When I was cutting fabrics earlier in November, I found this book and thought of that fabric:
The pattern called for three coordinating colors and I had on hand some gold and barely enough bubblegum pink. After I sewed the top, I noticed that Judy advised using a blended fabric rather than a solid--oh well, too late, it was sewn.
This is a bigger view of the fabric:
the quilt ended up looking like this and I may add a border at the bottom and the top before I sandwich it for quilting.
So friends, that's all from my little corner of the world. Still talking a lot with my sis until she goes back from Utah to Georgia for work. It's a time I look forward to and a time she connects with something other than the small town minutia that pervades my mom's existence. Gotta have someone to bounce all that stuff off---so she calls me and we laugh!
