My ONE goal is to finish this quilt made by my Mom:
I draped it over some furniture and waited for it to tell me what to do.
It gave no hints. Nuttin. Nada.
Since I was stuck, I decided to file ideas I'd pulled from magazines. (See my organizational system here.) Maybe inspiration would strike.
The distraction worked! An idea came to me for one little piece of the puzzle, so I loaded up and got started.
|I chalked a binding line so my feather tips won't get sewn away later.|
The black and white prints are the hardest to figure out. I still have no clue.
Barring a light bulb moment, I plan to scribble different things and see what works best. I hope my Mom is in a forgiving mood when she sees it, 'cause I'm not ripping anything out!
1. Quilt this guy:
2. Work on my Guild challenge
Today I pulled fabric from my stash, including one I painted last summer that will make a striking sky.
3. Have surgery (and recover!)
In 2008 I had a mastectomy, and finally made it to the top of the waiting list for reconstruction in November, 2013. (I blogged about the first surgery here. WARNING...the photos are explicit, so only click if you can handle the straight goods.)
This surgery will finish the process, and represents the end of a long journey.
4. Prepare for another trip to Sisters, Oregon!
Woo Hoo!!! I'm so excited, I can't stand it! Five days of classes with international teachers await!
This was my suitcase last year. I still had to squeeze in some clothes, but the class supplies were the important thing!
I think that's it for now!
