New Quilting Project


Yep, I am working on another quilt.  It is called “Square Dance” from the New English Paper Piecing, by Sue Daley.  I have really enjoyed the hand work appliquing the motifs to the background fabric.  Unfortunately, the process is not very good for me.  A stiff neck and back, and aching fingers from arthritis.  Ah well, can’t let a little discomfort stop the progress.  Can you tell that I am obsessed!??  Here is the progress so far….Image

In other news, Kip was home for an overnight.  He seems to be doing well at college – and enjoying it.  He is SOOO skinny tho!  I think he has lost weight – if that is possible.  We sent him home with a giant bag of chocolate chip cookies and lots of junk food and apples.  Hope he scarfs it all down and heads out for more!

Tomorrow we are heading for the farm.  Hopefully the weather will still be decent – It was certainly beautiful today – Sunny and almost 70 degrees!  I still need to get the drip tape up and the get the tomato stakes taken down.  Guess the quilting is going to have to wait…….
