I managed to do a little bit of 'obligation' sewing this evening after my store closed. This is a round robin block I have to work on this month - my assignment was to put a 3" wide border with curves onto this piece (sorry, no 'before' photo:).
I think this is a _very_ spring-y quilt in progress! I decided to do a simple freehand curved border with 'grass' and 'sky' prints. To me the border I did looks like rolling hills - the kind I love to ride my bike across! :)
Really, I _should_ say 'used to love' to ride my bike on -- I haven't been out bike riding for a couple of years. (sigh!) I'll have to get my flat tire fixed so I can go riding once the weather is reliably warmer. :)
I have a dear friend that I had kind of lost track of for the past two years - we've known each other since my oldest child and her youngest one were in nursery school together (about 30 years!). Yesterday we got in touch via telephone again and I was so happy I was giddy!
I love my friend Sherry and I was really afraid to call at first - I was afraid she'd be angry with me for dropping the threads of our friendship. Thank god she's a forgiving soul! She is having some health issues and I think this is a good time for an old friend (me) to offer support. I'm glad we reconnected - I am planning to go see her in person on my day off (Wednesday). :)
I also got not one but two Facetime phone calls from my niece Stephy who lives in NM. She bought some lovely fabric and was bravely trying to work her way through a very cute patchwork tote bag pattern. Facetime was so cool - she could let me actually read the directions for myself and see what she was having a hard time decoding. :) Life is sure interesting!!
