This week I went to visit my sister. She lives in the same town where our mom used to live. It still feels odd going there and not visiting Mom. But, sister and I kept ourselves busy sewing together. It's fun to sit and sew and gab and just be.
The blocks pictured below were made before I went to visit Sis. I am doing the Solstice blocks that Pat Sloan is posting at ilovetomakequilts.com . I somehow missed making Block #6, so I now have 1-5 and 7 done. Seven is in the above photos, and 1-5 are below:
I have been making these using a neutral and then some Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I have no real plan other than that.
My adult kids convinced me to empty out my sewing room, and we are going to paint it. It has been a huge task getting everything out of that room. I never would have done it on my own, but it needs doing, so I'm glad they pushed me. For now I can't do much sewing, because everything is in a jumble in the halls and on the stairway landings. I'm excited to get my sewing room back and much improved.
