I'm taking a break here at the store and I thought I'd share some photos of my recent work with you.
Here are some photos of the little wall quilt I won from Village Quilters last Saturday (I love it! I found out who made it, too:):
I'm still going in circles, trying to focus on one project that needs to be completed at a time. (sigh) Here are some photos of the basket/tote/purse I'm trying to make. The batik fabric I'm using is shown here -- this is how far I've gotten with the base of my tote (50 yards of 1/4" cotton clothesline and a little less than 3/4 yard of fabric). If you look carefully, you can see the two handles I bought beside the bottom. I took one shot from the side with my small snipping scissors (4"?) for scale.
It is looking like Hugh and I will be going to VA from Sunday to Thursday morning. Skip doesn't want to take the time away from his new job (he found out today that the next servicing mission for Hubble Space Telescope, for which he is working on the flight software, is due to take place the same time as our daughter's wedding in October:). I'm looking forward to being outside and taking it easy for a few days - I have been neglecting my 'outside time' lately and I really need it!
I had my six month regular check up with my internist today -- the weather is gloriously spring-y and the grounds of the medical complex are beautifully blooming (cherry trees, pansies, dogwood, etc). I felt like I had been released from a dark prison -- how lovely! :) (luckily, I'm fine, physically:)
