I was able to use another 2/3 of a yard this past week while finishing Cheryl's nephew Chris' quilt. It was a PIG (project in a grocery sack) that she had wanted to make for her nephew. The big C won and she left the bonds of earth too soon to see that realized. So a group of us took the pigs and are processing them at our own pace. I had mixed feelings while completing that quilt, glad I was on the homestretch while sewing on the binding yet melancholy and missing my friend Cheryl. It was with love for her that I was able to get this done and I hope Chris will feel her love when he snuggles underneath it.
Snow days at school mean that DH and I have some extra hands around the house on those days. This past Friday was a Snow Day so we had the two youngest grandchildren here all day. Can you say TIRED! We kept busy but I found myself by mid day having my own little meltdown so I put myself in my own little time out to try to keep my composure. A little sewing time by myself and I was feeling more my old self. Amazing that it can reset me so quickly. 8-)
So, I started little Miss PGD#1 with her own project. First learning the rudiments of the Singer featherweight by stitching on a piece of paper which she learned quickly. Then I happened to have a panel of Moda dolls for her to sew. I won't count that fabric out until the dolls are done and would you believe, I didn't have any polyester fiberfill! Perhaps we'll get to it Monday. They are both back since daycare is closed and School's on holiday for Martin Luther King's Day.
