Quilting as Solace

"Auntie Sam"

"Both Sides Now"

These are two quilts I am putting in the Charlotte show in March.
Just gotta do the binding.  I do not care about the quilt police.   I am  putting on the bindings by machine.,

I will prepare the 3rd one tomorrow.
I do not know what I would have done without my longarmer, Mary Jerz!!

Below, Aoife checks out Mt. Hood with her daddy.

Grandma here, is still working on accepting life on life's terms..
I was going to stop OT, but she gave me a week off, so now I guess I will keep on plodding along.
Meantime the pool gives me solace xo

Putting quilts in a show is wonderful. Other people get to share what can be done and maybe get them quilting. I do not put quilts in show that are done by jury because I know the minute I judge my work by whether it was in a show worthy or not, I will lose the joy of making them. You can keep going on the OT/PT because the payoff is infinitely better than doing nothing. It is hard.

Hugs to you every day in every way. Google is finally letting me comment again. It took 4 1/2 months without a clue of what I did wrong to mess up my blog. I got a post stuck in outer space. I visited it occasionally, asking aliens for help, researched on my phone for 4 hours a day on how in the world a 73 grandma with no coding training was supposed to fix her old blogger's customized theme provided errors especiallya stuck in time ans space post from October. Ha! Guess what I did it! Check out all the posts you missed. My blog still looks stuck in October on most feed readers. But I've been here all along.
