Hello to both of you who are still reading!
It has been so long since I have posted. To be honest, not a whole lot of sewing or quilting has been happening.
I went through a freshen-up-the-house spell. I painted the foyer, hall, and one kitchen wall cream.
Here are a few pictures from my foyer. My husband built the shelf. It has 6 double hooks for coats. I repainted the umbrella box, and the antique table was slenderized by 6" of depth, had a shelf added inside the door area on the left, and was repainted after being fortified.
Last item for this post is a bargello quilt I made for my oldest daughter. It lives in her kitchen. It is 44" square.

Just wanted to let the blogging world know that I'm still alive. I will post some updates from the past couple of months tomorrow.
I made this quilt for my daughter after telling people who constantly sent me a picture of this quilt that I'd never make one.

Here is the result from yesterday and this AM:

Yesterday I took my grandchildren back home. It was a bittersweet time, for sure. Their reunion with their parents was so sweet. I consider it an honor to have had them. I will miss the little nippers. I rarely think to take pictures. Just not wired that way.
I have been making major inroads in organizing my sewing room. I found this box of irregularly-shaped triangles. They are mostly from bindings that are sewn together at right angles. Lots of them have the selvage fabric on one edge.
I have gone back and forth. Pitch them? Save them? Donate them to someone else? I just finished my Wild Goose quilt and gave it to my son recently. That is what I used the other ones for, but I really did not want to make another one of those.
