In the scheme of things in life toothache is a blip on the horizon, but it did manage to obliterate a few days and then some for me. Today is the first time I feel properly back in the land of the living since last Friday. And how happy I am to be here too!
I have a busy social weekend ahead so have tried to squeeze in some sewing before I have to pack it all away until Sunday or Monday. I flipped a mental coin and the HR quilt won the toss for more piecing together.
Despite a huge amount of encouragement from so many to pursue Alison's idea of putting flying geese between all the blocks I totally ignored her and went for the simple option. Because I could, and I am lazy I suppose.
I ordered some Kona Dusty Blue and decided that it worked well with these panels. I will have to order some more. I wanted to make sure it was what I wanted before I committed to several yards of it.
And as I piece I have already worked out how I wish to quilt this. Won't be for a while yet but I am sure I will stick to what I have in mind.
I got my classes for the Fat Quarterly Retreat this summer. If you are there you will be able to find me in Embroidery with John Adams, Improv with Lu Summers, Triangle City with Katy Jones and Needleturn Appliqué with Mandy Noble. I'll be the one talking too much and getting in trouble with the teachers most likely.
I leave you with a photo I took on my school run this morning. Life isn't at all bad when you have this countryside to drive through each day.
