On to a new project! I am actually sewing a quilt for one of the granddaughters. I wasn't sure about all this when I started, but I am having fun! How can is it possible that I can cut crooked strips when using a grid ruler and rotary cutter. Even my best strips seem to be off. But, when I sewed them together I actually got a cohesive looking result. Photos will be posted.
Everything is going well here. My mom got her cast off yesterday and is a little disappointed that it still hurts when she moves her wrist. I keep telling her that it takes a long time to recover from injuries as serious as hers, but she's impatient. We found out they didn't perform surgery on her wrist because of all the skin missing on her hand. It would have increased her risk for a serious infection. As it is, even after 7 weeks there is still a large scab on her hand it isn't ready to come off yet.
Going to spend time with my older granddaughters this weekend. Their parents are going to a wedding so we get to spend a whole day together. Can't wait!
Okay, photos and then I am off.
