I'm Still Here!


 I'm still here, plugging away. Despite having so many projects in progress, when one of them is close to completion it's all I want to work on. Thus I've been focused on Allietare. Yesterday I finished the blocks. Next I made the parts and pieces for the corner pieces to fill in the edges.


Today I plan to finish the corner pieces and have it ready to sew together! (But then I still need to add the borders...) I really LOVE this quilt and my color choice worked well, I think. 


And why this this little bit of happy come home with me?

I need a bit of happy and I grab it where I can by polishing my nails bright orange or getting a good haircut or buying a bit of Tula Pink.

There is so much sadness with my FIL's impending death. He's been in an in-patient hospice for a couple of weeks. He's really struggling. It's hard to watch and hear about. We hope and pray he will soon go quietly in his sleep.

So if I miss a day or two of blogging here and there, it's probably because I'm looking for some happy.

I hope you find some happy today! I'm going out to lunch with Daughter 1 - lots of happy there!

  1. Julia, Staying busy with hard times to come makes it easier for now. I went through this last year with my Mother. Looks like you have plenty to keep your hands busy. Chris

  3. I'm so sorry for your sadness. I hope he is, at least, comfortable. I got a tula pink bundle in the mail today so I know exactly how you feel. It's like candy!
