Some more finishes.....













Continued improvement on my shoulder and neck... maybe mentally too, actually driving myself now, which is such a blessing. I understand now, why so many seniors hate to lose that part of their life. I was going a bit stir crazy, must admit. But maybe the best therapy is that I have begun easing into quilting again. And so enjoying working on the various quilts my customers have gifted me to do for them. Have done several for customers during the past week or two. Love this adorable pink one for a customers grandaugther. The gold and burgundy is not very clear unfortunately, but it was a very pretty fall quilt. I hate

that I didnt' get a very clear photo of it. The hot pink fuschia x block quilt is next. I like that she didn't use black as I did in mine. But hers is finished, mine isn't quilted yet. Then this pretty log cabin, is next. It is done with wonderful Christmas fabrics. Lastly is a quilt that needs to be sent off to Northern MS for a customer. I loved the African fabrics she used, it isn't a panel though the piecing doesn't show in photo well. But she did use the animal strips very effectively. I do love the variety I get to see from my customers. So much fun for me, and I am not a very clever piecer, so its always fun to see something I would never piece for myself. I am blessed for sure. The professor is taking his comprehensive exams starting in about 10 days. They last 3 weeks, and then he will go to a conference in North Carolina and present a paper, that is to be published in a professional journal in the spring. I am so proud of him. Once he gets past this big exam I think our life will get a bit more normal for us. I am looking forward to that. Hope to get a few more quilts done soon. I have a couple that are needing to be completed by next weekend. So need to get busy. My DD in law has a pattern in a McCall's magazine this month, think it is Quilter's World, a purse pattern for a new feature in the magazine. She is a wonderful designer.

So good to know you are gradually getting your life back to normal... & it's a pleasure to see all those beautiful quilts. Have to say that the Africa quilt is my favourite in this batch. :0)
