It’s Done

A Boy and A Girl is done.  Hard to believe 2 years 3 months in the making and it’s done.  I put the final applique stitches in last night and embroidered the eyes and mouths of the Boy and Girl.   I’m a bit at a loss right now.  This quilt has been such an integral part of my daily life for so long it seems odd not to be thinking about what I hope to accomplish today on it.  I’m thrilled I finished such a monumental project.  But there is a “but” hanging there.  I know I have other projects that need attention.  But…. I think I want to savor this finish just a bit.  I had a routine.  I would get up early so I could applique an hour each morning before getting ready for work.  My eyes would be fresh and I felt a sense of accomplishment while heading into work.  It just seemed to start the day on a bright note.  So for today I plan on feeling impressed by myself that I actually completed such a project.  I haven’t taken a final photo yet, but I did get a photo of one of the corners while I was working on it.  27858249_1840285456044863_942727480811019000_n26993914_1821828961223846_1738476110603559250_n

Now to order the backing.  I think I have decided on a purple polka dot.

I had to use a personal day for work today.  I have 1/4″ of ice covering everything.  Too dangerous for this old lady to get out on at this stage of my life.  Years ago I would have considered it a challenge against mother nature to get where I needed to go.  I now value my life more having survived breast cancer.  Each day is a gift.  I will not squander it.

Have a wonderful day.
