My new table and chairs. Got them on 11/10 before Mother went into the hospital the next day, so I haven't even unscrewed the seats to get the plastic off, but I like it anyway.
Mother is doing much better, and I left the hospital about 9:00 this morning to come home and get some things done... Did some beading and some more embroidery on this during the time at the hospital until I just didn't have anymore desire. It is essentially finished, will just take a few more stitches and put a sleeve on it, I think.
I have so much to do, but really tired and directionless. Have finished all the books I had, so must make another trip to the library. The last two days have been spent working on Maggie's self-portrait. Decided to try some hand quilting. Hmmm. Will need a lot of practice to improve on the sloppy stitching, but think it will fit nicely into a very primitive "primitive" category. I'll take a picture and post it later.
Also on my list of things to do, is to practice machine quilting. My inspiration is Mary Manahan's
Capitulation Room which is such a beautiful piece in every way and shows me that where I want to go will take a lot of practice. The entire quilt and the title make me think of Galileo; think I need to ask more about the title. Here is the entire quilt.
