These cold snowy days are long and it’s a good time to finish up those UFO’s . Many of you probably don’t even know who Mary Ellen Hopkins was but I attended several of her retreats in the late 80’s and early 90’s. This was one of the projects I made way back then and I just got it quilted today. Now that’s persistence – ha!
This next project was a reject from a book manuscript that I just laid aside in that pile of projects that seemed too good to get rid of and sure enough after I quilted it, I liked it a lot. Millie had help posing with Deano on the table with the somewhat droopy poinsettia.
This is Jackie who used to be the quilt shop cat.
And here’s the other black cat, B.C. – you might remember him as Barn Cat.
Last nite Jax did not want to eat and I was concerned. I tried one last time at midnight and then went to bed. I did not sleep well as you can imagine and when I got to the shop at 6:15 with 2 warm bottles, I was met with squeals and protests of hunger. The kids ate like lumberjacks! And then back to the carrier for a nap they went and I hit my recliner for a nap. All kids are lots of work, aren’t they? Ha!
For those who commented about there being nothing new under the sun, how true! Scrap vortex quilts have been around forever and we act like they’re something new. And Angie, I can just feel how heavy that quilt was – ha! Sewing like that, with no pattern and no rules, really appeals to me. And here’s the progress on my rug.
