I didn’t mean for it to be quite so long in between postings. DS (who is single) had hernia surgery last week and I spent some time with him at his home. He is doing fine and can return to work next week on light duty.
I have been working on several things from time to time the past few weeks. For some reason I took a notion to create more dolls. I still have one that I started 3 years ago in an online class with Michelle Munzone. She is waiting for me to finish the work on her face. I find that the hardest part of all to do. At present she is perched on a reel of fine gold wire. The purple stick is not part of the doll; it is just helping to prop her up.
Anyway, I now have two others started but am in no big hurry to get back to. As usual, I have several other things that I want to try, besides all the usual life/home things that must be done from time to time.
I took some time the other day to clear most everything off my work counter so that I could get to the front windows and clean them. I replaced the mini blinds at the same time. My room is still a big mess but I can walk around and find most anything that I might want. :-)
** Update on Lap Quilt**
After ironing the backing fabric and cutting and pressing the batting Tuesday, I finally was able to get the quilt top sandwich spray basted together with the help of DH. I have to choose threads and then I should be able to get started quilting. As I don’t own a mid-arm or long-arm machine, again it will be a fairly simple pattern stitched on this one.
