The side effect of this is - I have no sewing room. I realize that not everyone has a designated space for sewing, storing fabric, etc. but, until 6 months ago, I had a 10' x 12' room, a large storage closet, and a design wall. Now, I have a corner of the dining room table, and storage in our unheated enclosed porch. Not exactly conducive to working on larger projects.... And yet, I'm blessed by having what I have, so don't feel too sorry for me!
Anyway, I have managed to make 2 wedding gift quilts - and I've been doing some small scrappy projects. A bit of knitting has happened too...
So, here's what I've made - wedding quilt #1 - this couple got married in May, but I just finished the quilt in the wee hours of this morning. It's an easy make from a pattern online by Christa Watson.
This one was given to a young couple from church at their wedding a few weeks ago - the pattern is called "Lovebirds" and was designed by Leanne Parsons (Devoted Quilter).
And, unfortunately, a member of our congregation lost her mom, and needed a prayer shawl.
The summer has also been busy with the garden, my two fantastic grandsons, a bit of medical drama, and watching the life cycle of the monarch butterflies as they flit around our milkweed plants! Life has been (mostly) good!
