Still nursing the torn ligaments in my foot. I'm getting around without crutches now, but I still can't drive. It's good to see a bit of improvement. A few more weeks should do it.
Meanwhile, hubby brought my sewing machine down from the studio a few days ago. My dining table is now my mini-studio. For my holiday project I'm working my way through Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice Mystery Quilt. SO. MANY. LITTLE. PIECES. A real challenge for me.
I'm using this little iron while I work. I bought it for travel and retreats. Love the size!
See how itty-bitty it is? (I think I need a new pressing surface - eek!) The iron gets really hot for such a little baby.
I'm still working on Bonnie's first clue, though I have already cut clues 2 and 3. Piles of orange and navy here.
Someone insists on sitting in my lap when I'm sewing down here.
I have caught my annual Christmas cold which is making its way through our family this year. I hope all the sneezing, sniffing, and coughing is gone by Christmas.
By the way, I'm getting a new sewing machine for Christmas - sew excited! I'm going to be a Bernina girl very soon! It's been ordered and will hopefully be in soon for hubby to pick up.
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
