Small Steps


In the last few days I have tried sewing at the machine for just a few minutes, which isn't easy with your arm in a sling, and I've been surprised at what I've been able to accomplish! A whole row of charm squares with sashing and corner squares! Maybe doesn't look like much, but I feel like I've done a whole bunch in just a few minutes a day! I don't want to push it so have MADE myself go slowly! Feels so good to be at the machine again! There are really 6 blocks in the row, but one skipped out of the picture! These are packs of charm squares--I have 4 of them--2 each for each quilt I will make and these will go to Project Linus when finished someday.

Besides the flowers yesterday, I had a lovely pick-me-up phone call from the girls at retreat--they were having a wonderful time--I didn't get to go because of my surgery, but next time. According to what a little birdie told me, some serious work got done on the Forever Flowers quilts that were being worked on!!!! Your phone call really lifted my spirits, girls, and I thank you so much!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
