I know exactly what you mean Sherri. :)

Comment by Sherri Eley yesterday

LIke your pieces LInda. You are right we are our own worst critics. And I know most people would not pick up on the cut off points. But my eye goes right to them. What is it that causes us to look for the worst not the best in so many things. People included... I am trying to do better in that area the people part anyway. But very difficult in these trying times.

Comment by Linda Koller yesterday

Knew what you meant Sherri! From the photo can't see anything wrong with your points. We are our own worse critic!! It will look lovely regardless of which way you decide to go with it. It has a very colorful springtime look.

The only thing I've completed in the past couple years is just recent...a patriotic table runner and a banner for church convention. I suppose I could post them on my page. It's taken a year to get resettled into my sewing room. I was using the dining room and I just couldn't get motivated. Photos aren't the best...my cell phone takes awful photos.

Pretty, Sherri.  Either project would be gorgeous!

PS WISH THERE WAS AN EDIT BUTTON.    i MEANT I am able to walk with the boot on not unable to walk with the book.   

Comment by Sherri Eley yesterday

Where are  all of you Ohio quilters?  This is a little piece I played with during the past week.  I am not able to walk ,  with the book on,  but the fracture still not showing any signs of bone growth.  So back in 4 weeks.  But at least I can move around a bit better now.   These little tulip and star blocks are from the book Quilty Fun by LOri Holt.  I am trying tro decide whether to complete it as a baby quilt or a table topper.  I am leaning towards the table topper because I am not happy with my points on this one. But plan to make more of these little blocks and eventually incorporate them into other projects.

There is a hold on,,,,,,,,,,everything. Although I did not expect to get out of this boot yesterday,  I was hoping I would be able to bear weight on that ankle, and get rid of my walkers.  Not so much.  Dr. not pleased with the way the fracture is healing. Still can see the break line on the xray.  So back in two more weeks and hopefully some improvement. Meanwhile things continue as they have for the past two months.  No weight. on the right side...  Decided to work in sewing room again.... today.  Have all my 4 patch blocks completed now to work on the triangle blocks for this little scrappy.... But it's only been about an hour and fighting the walker while trying to cut the pieces has worn me out.   Think I will take a break and maybe come back to it this afternoon.  Would love to be a part of a sewing weekend. But unlikely for me,  since I am working weekends only now... But if you all manage it.  let me know when and I may ask for those days off.  Of course that is only when I am able to drive again.

Sheila Craft, that sounds like a plan. I just shampooed the carpet in the sewing room this weekend and cleaned everything. Will move the machines in the next couple weeks from the bedroom.

In case any one is wondering....my sewing room is in my florida room. I can sew there about 8-9 months of the year. Then I move to the bedroom.

Hey there, Linda! We should probably plan a sewing weekend, don't you think? Maybe a trip to a quilt shop thrown in?

Comment by Linda Koller on April 27, 2017 at 10:32am

I might as well be in a cabin in the woods. I don't get out much anymore due to transportation issues. I live in the suburbs but I'm a hermit. What is wrong with this picture?!
