Sharon, so good to hear you are working on your quilt. My "Jerry Quilt" is hanging on the wall and i have done everything else but work on it. I needed the motivation that you are working on yours.
My Mom went home two weeks ago and my life is finally getting back to me. We are still helping my Mom CLEAN her tiny house. She is very close to a hoarder. Everything is a fight but we are slowly cleaning it out. What a lot of stress and of course, I am the "tough bitch" in the family making her let go of things. She is 95 and has good health and a great mind. Hard Work.
I finished my latest swap and now to do things for myself. On a different note, since my life has been so crazy since 5/23/2013, I actually finished two quilts of hand stitching. When you sit around a hospital for hours at a time, hand work does it.
