It has been 6.5 weeks since I lost my sweetheart. There has been much to do and little interest in quilting. But my friend Carol went through her large stash and gave me many additions for the project that has been languishing on my design wall. And now that most of my tasks are done or underway, I am finding it relaxing to cut some new pieces (bottom row) in the evenings. Thank you Carol for this this gift of renewed inspiration.
Another quilt blogger friend Liz from Australia is attending the Houston show and has coaxed me into going. At first I felt it was too much to deal with but I decided by November I will need something wonderful to do and what could be more perfect than a quilt show which I hear is fabulous. Another friend Deb from Chicago is also attending and has helped me through the pre-registration decisions. I am looking forward to meeting them both in person. If any of my other dear readers are planning to be there, please let me know! I would love to meet you too.
