Hello, happy Friday! Things have been busy around here, sewing, work, and a special little surprise (see the end of the post). Mina sent in four more of these cool village tops for Covered in Love and I quilted them. You can see the first one she sent here.
I found some more fun backing fabrics to match the brightly colored fronts. Thanks to many donations I have a nice selection of backing fabric to choose from.
Lots of neat fabrics and little fussy cut surprises in these. A cowboy and Darth Vader appear in windows ;)
Testing out my new indoor rainy-day photo system today and I think it works pretty well. I need to get a few more lights and figure out how to make the quilt hang straighter.
I had a patient in her 90s the other day with a little mild dementia. We ended up realizing she grew up in the same tiny town where I now live and we were able to talk about all kinds of people and places that she remembered. It was fun to hear how different things were back then, but also how many things are the same. It really is a small world, after all.
I promised you a "little" surprise. Well, these four babies joined me on Saturday the 22nd. About 2-3 days old and lost by their mom during a Thunderstorm. I've been staying home as much as possible since they'll require around the clock care for the first 3 weeks, so my sewing time has benefited, although my sleep has not!
Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 300 so far! The Sept/Oct drive is a repeat of one of my old favorites, the grown-up eye-spy quilt. Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.
