I quilt...and for the last year I haven't been able to do it. I tried do it out in the garage one year during the winter, with a space heater. I had to wear gloves with the fingers cut out. Very clumsy. So that option tanked. Summer wasn't too bad in the garage, but people really aren't impressed with sweat spots on their gifts. So I put the sewing away.
And now it's back. I am so happy. This is such a great stress reliever for me. And I have a myriad of projects that I need to finish. My goal is to get three projects done by the end of the year. About 11 or so years ago I started a queen size quilt for my second son. Silly me, I decided to hand quilt it. I have one and third borders left to finish it. After about 8 or 9 years of him asking when he was going to get it, he has given up. HA! I'll surprise him. Three years ago I started a wedding quilt for my oldest daughter. She's now been married 2 1/2 years and has a baby and no quilt. Project number 2 this year. And when my oldest son was diagnosed with a serious illness and came home for me to care for him this past year, I started a quilt for him. Project number 3. At least I won't have time to get bored!
So the door is closed except for dinners and such. And I get to go back to creating things that won't put inches on my already robust body. When I get my camera fixed I will post some pics of my creations. And I do continue to cook. Just have many other things to do now.
