A few weeks ago, I showed off one of my Great Granny Mary's Quilts -- one that I had hoped to remake.
A close-up of one block, they looked simple -- I made one test block with scraps and then pulled a stash of romantic florals and matching solids. I cut out enough to sew a few here and there and ended up with a wall full of the blocks.
I also made several HSTs to play with a pieced border -- for now it will have to stay. I have tops to quilt and deadlines to make.
On a personal note, last Thursday I had a small procedure to correct my right eye's distant vision, called Lasik. On Friday, I went back to work -- driving, working on computers and came home to sewing. I use my left eye for close-up and now my right eye for distant. AMAZING! I fully expected a period of adjustment and downtime -- one day, that is all. No more contacts or glasses. I am a happy camper.
