The Sew Must Go On!
The leg situation (see previous posts) continues. There is improvement, not as much or as quickly as I'd like, but improvement. I've never been known for being a patient person.
There's been a discrepancy between my head and my body: My head (and heart) want to sew sew sew but the pressure of the chair edge on the underside of the knee limits my endurance. I am so eager that I can almost taste it to unpack the Go! and GO, but that is going to have to wait. And before the Go! arrived, I had bought a pattern (something I don't often do) for a new project and a two sets of templates after reading a post that Nicole had put up (link goes to Nicole in general, not the specific post) about her experience with templates. I never got to try any of these new toys before the knee erupted.
So I'm really, really happy to post this picture today. My granddaughter's ballet school owner holds a tea party each spring to benefit breast cancer research. She thought she would like to have a pink quilt for a little girl this year among the goodies on her massive tombola table. You know how I hate to be doing something at the last minute, so I'm delighted to have this top finished and ready to go to the machinist next month. I'll have plenty of time in the cold, cold months ahead to do the binding. And hum selections from Swan Lake.
