Quilting Update

Happy First Day of Spring!

I did hear some birds singing but it's hard to imagine Spring with all this snow.

My quilt is coming together but with a lot of help from my friends. I just haven't been recovering from my last chemo treatment as well as I would have liked to. I continue to be very tired and lacking in focus. Today on my way to the quilting session, my nose started bleeding and wouldn't stop. We laughed and said that some projects required blood, sweat and tears but this wasn't quite what we were thinking. Anyways, instead of bleeding all over the squares, the other ladies jumped in and helped me with the work. Once my 'bloody' nose was in order, I was able to start sewing. I'm very excited about how it is coming together.

The sewing has inspired me to pull out some crocheting and knitting projects I have been working on for ... I hate to say it .... years. I promised myself, that if I finish those projects, I will go out and look for a used sewing machine and try quilting at home.

Must be such a long winter over there.

Bad enough here with no snow.

I hope you start to feel better soon.
