Crazy Busy


This is a post of random notes.

Thank-you so much for the support for Quilts Recover. I'm seeing posts go up around the blogosphere by friends. Emails are coming in already. If there wasn't this rotating postal strike some quilts might even be on their way already!

There've been a number of suggestions for Quilts Recover. Different chapters, financial donations, and offers of quilting tops sent from far away. I promise you that I'm sorting through all the ideas and figuring out ways to maximize quilts and quilters' generosity. You folks are just awesome.

There wasn't a lot of quilting done in the last week. I was up to my eyeballs in writing deadlines. In one day I interviewed Jennifer Paganelli (Oh, she is so awesome!) and a handful of goat farmers (also awesome). In between butt wiping and baking muffins for preschool. Now that's the life!

Lastly, I'm getting the binding on the Shades of Grey quilt. That's today's task, along with prepping for The Monster's 5th birthday party tomorrow.

Then, on Thursday, I'm having knee surgery. Finally. Just one of my knees, but they will check out the other while I'm down for the count. Needless to say, there won't be a lot of quilty action, aside from handstitching that binding, for the next week or so.

On that note, time to get prepping!

Best of luck with the knee Cheryl, I know you have suffered with it for long enough. Love the grey quilt, too.

All the best with the surgery. I am a little overwhelmed these days so haven't addressed the quilts for recovery, but hope to.

I look forward to seeing the Shades of Grey completed. And thanks for pointing the way to Thomas Knauer's blog over on r0ssie's page.

Hope the surgery goes well.

In between butt wiping and muffins try quilting a whole cloth quilt so you can do some fun applique on it to keep the fingers and brain busy.

Good luck on that one.
