I’ve managed to get one of my own quilts done. Actually, this is for my sister-in-law’s birthday. It’s a pattern called, “Jewel Box”, by Elenor Burns. It was an easy pattern to make, but very boring. I think she’ll love it and she’ll be very surprised.
This is a hard time of year for us, as it’s the anniversary of our oldest son’s suicide. Last week was hard for me, Saturday was the anniversary date, but I tried to stay busy and just get through it. Man I miss him!!
I made a new purse, it’s good therapy to make a purse. You can’t have too many and you can get it done in a day. I love this fabric, and it made a great fall purse. I used a Lazy Girl Design pattern called, “Miranda Bag”. It’s a little bit bigger than I like to carry, but I’m working with it.
I’m going to my local quilt shop to talk with the owner about teaching a quilting design class. She had the idea, and I’m still on the fence. I still feel like I’m learning myself, and I don’t know if I could teach anyone anything, but we’ll talk about it tomorrow.
