Long Time

It's been a long time since I've posted to this blog. Life has kept me busy.

After 3 years I have cycled out of my knitting and crocheting phase and back into my first love -- quilting. Using the sewing machine doesn't seem to bother my hand as much. I've even been able to do some embroidery but not for long periods of time. A lot of it depends on how much time my hand has spent on a computer mouse.

I finally finished my grandson's quilt. I just have the binding to sew on and it's done. After all these years in quilting, I've never sewn on a separate binding. I've always folded the back over the front. Hopefully I won't have too much trouble.

I'm making a quilt for my daughter for Christmas. I'm even hand quilting it. I'm only quilting on the weekends after my hand has had a chance to rest. Thank goodness I'm not doing an intricate design. I'd never get it done in time. I'll have photos to post next time.
