December was a heck of a month. Sunday morning, Dec 15, I received a text from my sister. She'd been in an accident. A very nice passerby stopped and texted me further details of where to meet the ambulance, etc. She was rear ended by a drunk driver at 7:45 a.m. -- yeah -- a.m. She was injured but it wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been. Since she couldn't adequately care for herself, she moved in with us for a few weeks. She's progressing and hopefully will return to work this week.
While my routine has been out of whack (and I'm very much into routine), I've still been able to finish several projects. The one that brought me the most joy was "Silent Night". It's a pattern by my friend, Norma Whaley, of Timeless Traditions.
Cotton backgrounds with wool applique. The borders are simple log cabin blocks. Here's some closeup photos.
If you'd like to make one just like mine, visit here to find out more info.
I plan to post at least weekly so be sure to check back soon.
