Block play

My life now is consumed with waiting for this reluctant little grandchild who will not be born. He is a boy after all, and I'm told they are lazy. However, I did manage to get some work done in the studio yesterday, finally. 

I finished the top and bottom borders for Many Moons. Now working on the sides. While slowly waking up this morning, I decided to do each corner in the above yellow fabric (with a crescent moon in each block) and a sort of back and forth flying geese pattern for the sides in above two colors. 

I also started thinking about my story quilt again. I'm thinking I'd like to add some sawtooth star blocks. 

Also, I originally thought I'd do a black and white small block background, but the black and white made me feel a bit overwhelmed...
...so I played with black and purple, in an Amish sort of way, and really liked the results. You can see the difference in the above sketch. 

Well, my daughter went to the doctor and was told there is no dilation, even though she had a show. So there's no change

April endings


Some hand quilting on an abstract piece. Sitting and stitching is very relaxing. Very meditative. And I need that right now.

Big life stuff happening and I am feeling a bit nervous about it. I have a job interview tomorrow for my old job in the library I used to work in. No new learning curve or anything, but I have grown to hate interviews. The house was appraised for more than our offer, so for all intents and purposes, it is ours. Just waiting for a closing date. And all this with wonky head. My balance has gotten worse in the past 6 months. I am nervous about our trip to Miami to see the doctors. But I am trying very hard. Jerry and I started doing Tai Chi and I think that it is helping already. We have a weeks vacation coming up, so hopefully we can go up to Crescent City and close on the house that week. I will try to relax and not worry. Then after vacation, we'll go to Miami.



I made a sort of lame yet functional design wall in the loom room. It really helps to be able to see what I'm working on. If you look at a piece for a while, you can get new ideas and what not.

Went to get in my car this morning and was greeted by these two. They are just growing out of the lawn. Just the two of them. Little reminders of hope.
