Given the likely crazy few weeks ahead, I am sharing a "mini" of sorts a little early. These two dollie quilts were cut and finished by my Grandma Mary Lou in the early 90's, from a tiny Grandmother's Flower Garden top she rescued:
She meander machine quilted the white backgrounds, and tied the centers of each "flower" -
They are so charming and sweet.
And now they are packed away. *All* of my quilting stuff is ready to move over to the "dated-but-new-to-us" townhouse next month:
This does not even include all the quilting stuff I had in Tokyo, which was part of our "sea shipment." It's just too much stuff. Sometimes I daydream about chucking it all and taking up embroidery, watercolor, and knitting - all of which, combined, would take up far less space!
In other news... David and I have been walloped by Covid. We had avoided it for SO long that it was sort of a shock to get it. The worst symptoms for me have been bad headache (like, scary bad) and extreme fatigue. We are on the upswing I think, and counting the days til we will safely be able to visit with people again.
With September right around the corner, I've also been considering joining a local quilt guild. I feel shy about it, but I think it might be a good idea. What about you... do you participate in a local guild?
