I started a little crochet project this weekend. I've been drooling over this moss stitch I've been seeing on blogs. I have a small stash of yarn so I got this afghan started on Friday. Very relaxing...
Don't worry. Quilting is still numero uno in my book. But a diversion every so often is rather nice.
So I survived hosting my first quilty luncheon here in Auburn this week. Whew! Went well. Back in Birmingham, quilty luncheons usually consisted of chicken salad, some fruit, some chips, a simple yummy desert. Here you really COOK! A hot chicken casserole or something similar. A vegetable. Maybe a salad. Bread. And a birthday cake for the birthday girl of the month. Everyone was so nice and it all went so well!
I'm off to Augusta tomorrow to help out my mother for a couple of days. She's having a cataract removed this week. We are HOPING that this will restore some vision in her eye. She lost vision in the other eye a few years ago when she had an eye stroke.
And yes, I'm taking my crochet project with me - no sewing. Can you believe that?!
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.
