Well…not the REAL sewing room. The real sewing room is upstairs, and I can’t get there right now…so in the spirit of making do, I moved my machine, ironing board and piles of stuff down to the main floor. (Note: the person I live with is very tolerant…)
I set up shop in “the back room” off the kitchen, where we often eat and read the paper, and where my computer is…now all heaped with stuff…and you can’t get to the cookbooks (what a relief!)
and here’s some of what is going on…projects…
including Anne’s quilt. When I was at the Lost Coast Culture Machine in the fall I started a muslin and thrift-store-fabric quilt (my 1/3 is on the left below.) Anne decided to work on it and I agreed to quilt it for her when she finished…it arrived yesterday…
and then my own try at a “modern” quilt (now about half quilted)
and then things arrive…an old old quilt from Texas…a gift from Irene, a nine patch, almost totally gone but the fabrics are so beautiful…
a thrift store find…
and then…the BONUS card…fruitcake #2 arrived from Ellen (which was very lucky as we’ve devoured fruitcake #1 because of it’s little-known medicinal qualities…)
Oh, fruitcake *definitely* has medicinal properties. Especially when liberally doused with brandy! You’ll be on your feet again in no time.
I really love the modern quilt!
I like the card that came with the fruitcake too! cute cat in a tree. 🙂
Bonnie, I am so looking forward to seeing you on Friday….I have truly been an absent friend….while right there mentally with you all the way..I envy you in a way, as you are pretty much free to play with your fabrics and paints as you wish…with an excuse!!! Of course, you have always been disciplined in a way that I admire..I can’t wait to see you and hear your voice..xox Lynne
Love the red and white quilt. The bird and pocket are brilliant!
I think I see the red alphabet-and-bunnies cloth from the flooded store in Wilmington, VT in that pile of possibility, don’t I? Happy to know you’re back at work with all this lovely cloth. E.
…little known medicinal qualities? I really have to investigate that. You are an inspiration!
The quilts are beautiful!
Love you. Miss you.
