I should have known that there was a speed bump ahead when I made so much progress in January at using fabric from my stash!! My Mom took a tumble two weeks ago and I've spent lots of time "waiting" here and there for this person and that person. But when life happens, I'm glad I have my hand work organized as a quick fall back. That totebag with my knitting which is always waiting by the backdoor got more attention than usual. One pair of socks down and another in process!! And my "big stitch" handquilting project was waiting to help me unwind every evening.
Happily, Mom is on the mend and this past weekend my students in the Economy Stars String Piecing workshop I taught at the Lake Metroparks Farmpark Quilt Show helped me get back to my machine and some happy stitching. The work they produced was inspiring!
