Well today after a week at home lying low after a hit on the head with a golf ball my husband has made me a fantastic design wall....
I have many projects on the go, but decided to wait till the Bernina 820 is back in my hands so I can start to use it for machine quilting, so what did I do- I started a new project! I have a large box or 2 of scraps, not big enough for anything but a small appliqued flower or so, although some are larger pieces. I have cut some into strips and am making a string quilt, a rectangular A5 size block.
Its really easy, does not require too much brain power, I need to get up and press occasionally, so I am not sitting or long periods of time! and its growing fast, AND most of all I am remembering the lovely fabric and why I initially purchased it and what I use it for, or who gave it to me.
A lovely way to spend an afternoon.
I did finish a piece for an exhibition later in the year and have done some preliminary work on another project.
