Here it is June. The days seemingly are disappearing before my eyes. My UFO projects list is whittling down as well. Such a good feeling to put to rest the once revered projects that were starting to haunt me. Yesterday, I went to the Sampler Club at our quilt shop. It’s good to spend time with people who enjoy the same interests that I have. I love the show and tell. Such inspiration. The creativity is awesome.
I got my log cabin quilt back from Vicky, who quilted it for me yesterday. It is truly beautiful. I am considering entering it into the Ozark Empire Fair this year. They have a special theme class of log cabin quilts.
My back is 85-90% well. I have gotten back to sewing but at a slower pace. I sew, get up and move around to work the stiffness out of my back. Yesterday I was able to wash a couple of windows (from the inside only). That was a nice accomplishment. I also was able to mow bits and pieces of the yard working the same way. I would mow (riding mower) a little bit and then go rest my back. Slowly getting things are getting accomplished. Feels good.
Down to last last 20″ of border to get appliqued, of course this was last month’s UFO, but still plugging along on it and pretty excited at the prospect of its completion. It is so true that quilters pour their lives into their quilts. My Bear Hollow Quilt knows my most innermost thoughts and feelings, I believe I will need to keep it close as I have never let anyone get close enough to me to know me as well as this quilt does.
My addiction to BOM’s knows no bounds. I truly love them. With that said…. I recently signed up for a BOM applique pattern by Kim Mclean titled “A Boy and A Girl Albuml”. I fell in love with the bright colors and their non traditional use in the applique. So I will be adding this project to my list to work on each month.
I suppose there could be worse things to be addicted to.
