One hour--glass at a time...

I have timed myself today for progress...and if I am honest, for control.  I am able to stand and work for 15 min before I must sit or lie for dizziness as I recuperated from the effects of the concussion.  That means that I can get something done in those 15 min.  This top is now finished.  Design brain was not working...lattice should have been 2" inch cut and not 1/5 to make quilt less busy with a better place for the eye to rest.  What can I say ..glad I could do it at all.

Marni and I have been friends for 20 plus years.  When she and her mother, with Dementia drove thru Charlotte to visit my mother with her Parkinson's,  I decided to give her a quilt.  She will be 60 in September.  Since my fall, I have once again realized that we are promised nothing.  Living in the day, she chose from four quilts, her birthday quilt. the present...yes!  I thought that the Hourglass was very very appropriate.  ( In a less positive vibe, broken dishes could be appropriate too.)

Oh my goodness, Diane - I can't believe about your fall and concussion! I hope you are feeling much better now. The hourglass quilt is so lovely, your friend must be thrilled with it.h
