I haven't done much sewing lately, but with the holidays over and studio finished (mostly), I'm getting back into a sewing rhythm.
My mom's quilt is coming along. I'm sewing strips together for borders. It may go to the quilter next week! I love that the whole thing can hang on the design wall with room to spare.
I made a lap quilt for my sister using scraps from the curtains I made for her last year as the starting fabrics upon which to build.
My sister's quilt:
"Wine and Chocolate"
Finally, I made a sling bag for a friend and have requests for a Bible cover and an iPad cover.
And there is fabric stashed already for a soccer quilt to raffle and a long-overdue quilt for Erin and Luke.
Plenty of sewing to come.
I'm working toward a goal of 40 books this year. So far in January ...
-I'm continuing through Anna Karenina. It keeps getting put aside in favor of other books but I will finish it!
-I'm continuing through Divine Conspiracy with friends. This is a book that I am loving and savoring and deeply enjoying discussing.
-Reading Letters to Malcolm Chiefly on Prayer by C.S. Lewis. One of Coty's Christmas presents which never made it up to his office. I stuck it in my basket and am close to finishing it. Love reading Lewis again.
-Finished the novel Evidence of Things Unseen by Marianne Wiggins. I loved reading this book but was troubled by parts of it. Still it is luminous writing, as befits the characters whose love story it tells. I just didn't like the way it ended, but no spoilers. It's worth reading.
