Cute and nice, QMN! Based on what I know from the little girls in my life, that quilt will make some young girl very happy!

I didn't get to sleep last night, but I got one yop done, and another today. I wish I knew why I simply can't sleep sometimes, but when it hits, I try to be useful.

:thankyou:

Mom used to say that if I were unable to sleep, I could do some housework. It was a good theory, but did not work for me. Reading definitely does not help. Sewing sometimes does, but I have to be strict about stopping when I start making mistakes. I don't think TV helps much.

The real problem was that my ankle and leg were badly behaved yesterday, so I could not do much until quite late. DH finally broke the spasms with traction. He rigged a pulley from my leg to the TV cabinet with tie down straps and a bag of rocks. I would have hated to try to explain to a stranger why I was sitting there with Jerry-rigged traction. witch4

I felt pretty silly at the time, although once the traction was on, the pain stopped rather quickly, so I was more than willing to put up with the silliness. A neighbor came by and "limboed" under the strap.

The actual picture is even funnier. Yes, He is a very good DH. Today he took MY dog to the vets' (mild bronchitis) while I stayed behind and babied myself. Then DH fixed dinner because my ankle was hurting again.

Yesterday, I got another top done, no pix yet. I handed about 8 tops to my friend who clean for us today. She is going to press them for me!!!! Whenever I press, my shoulder-neck hurt. Today, I barely got started on a garden maze quilt using another fairly fabric Mamu sent me.

I would be feeling much worse if I were not quilting. I am doing better than I have in a year.

After several false starts and lots of problems, I decided that this flimsey is finished. It still has problems, but I decided not to fix them after all.

I paper pieced the cornerstones, so they were not hard, the rest of the sashing was just strips. What was tricky was getting the weave right. I should not have kept going after I knew I'd made 2 errors. I am sure I'll do this pattern again.

Thanks. I just had to do something really special with that really special fabric Mamu gave me. I can just imagine the litttle girl it goes to feeling special with it. I had a very poor student once who made a huge fuss when I gave her a (used, clean) floral hankie. I l;ike to think of having a strong effect on some of the quilt recipients of the quilts I make. I know that some I have given to people I actually have met have seemed to have a large impact.

Thanks.

I have had a long "dry spell", so it feels really good to be back at work. Today, I quilted Hunter Cat on Orange. I made the blocks some time back and put it together yesterday.
