I couldn't work on it for the longest time, because all I did was cry - and it very hard to hand quilt while crying. My Grammy and I were very close, she started teaching me to sew when I was 3 - yes -3! Of course, she also taught me to quilt .
After I could work on it, it was always popped out of the hoop for other more pressing needs: prayers shawls, birthday and Christmas gifts, and commission work to help pay the bills. Yes, I only have one lap size quilting hoop. I have one on a floor stand, but it is not practical at this time due to space constraints
I have logged about it often, because thinking about my Grammy always seems to make me verbose. My mothers death made me feel an urgency to finish things - part of the grieving process I would guess; but I am excited because it is close to done.
For those who have not seen it:
Before I quit working on everything else to finish this I did do these:
Finished post card, save the post card stamp - the ink showed up a few days later and I didn't take pics after I stamped them. Most we're gifts, the rest in my for sale bag :-)
Yes, those are appliqué blocks underneath - done now but pics not taken yet
I've been threading kits of needles- one of my first quilting "jobs" - I was so excited to be helping it didn't matter 😃
So, what gave you all been up to?
