I have been taking a break from crafts for a while while I sorted my life out a bit better.
Some of you might have recalled my posts over the last years about my Grandmother in Scotland. I was always sending her photos of projects and telling her about what I was doing every day it made her happy to hear of what we we were all doing . She passed away a couple of weeks after her last sister so it has been a very hard month this past one. I still jump for the phone at different times thinking it is her calling. I know this will get better over the time but her passing is still very raw.
I put my mind on the ufo's I had sitting around that had easy sewing so I could loose myself in the machine that worked real good to get me by the first few weeks I ended up putting 4 quilts to be finished !! I only have a couple more to get done I believe I now only have about 6-8 ufo's left !! these are some of the smaller ufos I completed. I will post pics of the bigger ones later.
I decided this past week to just sit and read books I have not sat and read for such a long time I forgot how relaxing it is to loose oneself in a story. My husband made me a nice bookcase and table to sit by my chair for the football season.
We also replaced the couch in the living room finally on labor day weekend we got a sleeper sofa so we could pull it out to lay on and watch tv and to sleep on if we have another hurricane. the quilt ont he back is a ufo finished as well it was actually my mothers ufo pillows that I took apart and made into a quilt instead these were the reason I first started quilting at the local bee!! it only took me over 12 years to do them!!!
I I have been sitting outside a lot more in the mornings and letting Gizmo run with the other dogs it is so peaceful out in the front listening to the birds first thing.
I also finished my farmers daughter block this is the last one that has been posted for awhile. The poor lady lost her house in the floods.
Well I will go now and hope you all have a great week!!
