Catching up… The Blue Quilt

It has been so long since I’ve blogged consistently that I find many things I’ve started blogging about and then never followed up… One of those things is my Big Blue Quilt.  I finished the quilt top and then it sat in my sewing room for about a year.. 😦   Finally decided on an all cotton quilt batting, bought the lining and took it to my Aunt Sue (she has a long quilting machine.. 🙂  )  It came back lovely.  And warm.  We used it last winter on the coldest days and didn’t have to have any other blankets to stay warm.

I’ve spent the last several months doing watercolors.  The rash that lasted almost 2 years  seems to have run it’s course.. (fingers crossed here!)  I stayed out of my craft room for almost a year and did very few projects with my wool or other fibers.  We never did find a definitive answer to what caused the rash… 😦  Here’s a couple of my watercolors..

But I’m back to working with my wool and no sign of rash (she says.. quietly..) so hopefully that episode is over.

This is definitely no time to be recuperating from surgery.. 😦  Christmas is near and still have much to do.  The weather continues to hold quite warm for this time of year… just hoping it stays that way until I can get out and do some shopping.. 🙂

Have a lovely day…
