Some sewing, at last...

first sewing project in over two months. This measures 50x50" and is for my 3rd son, Jacob. He helped me lay it all out because the "simple" pattern was really beyond me. They had you start from the center and work your way out. What's up with that? Not the way my mind works on a good day, and these wouldn't be called good days. So we did one row at a time. Took me four days and now I need to grow it to 60x 76" so that it will fit the minkee blankee that I bought to go with it. I wish it could have been green, his favorite color, but they didn't have any green minkee when I bought it a while back, so this will do. The minkee is a lovely russett color. Lots of chopped off corners in those HST, but not one of my boys would ever even think to mention such a thing. The rust fabs are from my uncle's stash- I weeded some out that didn't call to me, and the backgrounds are from my own even if they did suggest you use the same, but you know me, I like it all scrappy.

I have a new med and it is helping. an improvement. and any improvement is a good thing. Hey, I did laundry, yesterday. wow.

You make me proud to be an aunt. Must not have cut off much of those corners...I couldn't find a one. The Amish purposely make a mistake in any quilt they make because they say that only God can make perfect things.

Beautiful quilt! I want to do one like that, one day. Just have to find time to get back to quilting first.
