Joining Those Who Have Come Before Me

What began as a productive day quickly turned sour when I was cutting a piece of fabric. Never saw the blade rolling towards my finger... however, I soon knew there had been contact. I was very lucky though, all I took off was skin, it didn't effect muscle, or veins!

After plenty of tissue and a frantic call to a paramedic friend to confirm I was doing what was best, the pain slowly began to ebb... slowly...

Now I have joined the club of all of those who have come before me and sliced their hands with a rotary cutter... Let's hope it doesn't happen again.

Proof that a lot of work has gotten done...

After not posting for a while I feel the need to prove that work has gotten done here. So, here is a little bit of what I have been working on lately! More pictures to come soon!

The Proof is in the Pudding...

Or in this case, the stacks of quilt squares lying around. My hope is that I will have enough to make a twin size quilt, if not, I guess it will have to be a large lap quilt!

I also recently did an ironing board cover that was monogramed for a friend. And I absolutely love it! Kayla was gifting it, and said that it needed to be colorful and polka dots were good too! I think the criteria was met. I want one for myself.

While working on everything I had a visitor who camped out in my room- she knew I would be leaving to go back to school soon and she likes to keep me in eye sight... Guess I am not the only one who likes Anna Maria Horner's Garden Quilt...
