"A word to the wise ain't necessary - -
it's the stupid ones that need the advice."
I feel like my life spun out of control when I went back to work last week! I zigged when I should have zagged and re-injured my back, so I've been making frequent visits to my chiropractor again. Just when I had "graduated" to only going once a month, I made it two weeks into that first month and BAM...I feel like I'm back to square one. I know that technically I'm not, but it still feels that way. **sad face here**
In between the chiropractor visits, I have been working, hand quilting on the "Sherbet" quilt, and making baby gifts for our grandson that is due to make his appearance the end of June! I can't show you the baby gifts until after they have been delivered to and opened by Erin, but I can show you the progress on the "Sherbet" quilt!
I am only able to reach about 1/2 way through the block before turning it to the next area, so these blocks were 1/2 way done when I took these pictures last week. However, I have now finished the second half of the blocks and have cranked the quilt again since these pictures were taken!!! I am moving right along on this quilt!!
I am using pastel pink thread for the hand-quilting, but as you can tell by the picture, you can barely tell there is any color to it. One of these days, I will get brave and use a darker color, but that will definitely show up uneven stitches more. The lighter thread "hides" the imperfections!
I have never entered a quilt into a quilt show before, but if I can get this one done by June I'd like to enter it into the quilt show in Bridgeport. I am under no illusions that I would win any awards because my stitches are far from "perfect", but I would still like to enter it....just for the fun of it.
I have finally made my blocks for "Kevin the Quilter's" Quilt of Valor challenge...
Kevin... I will be mailing them out to you this week!! :) Thank you for doing this challenge! Your quilts will be a blessing to so many veterans!!
