Here's a great link to a free ebook on making memory quilts (via Quilting Arts).
I keep saying I'm going to make a memory quilt, but I never do. Maybe this will inspire me, but I've not done any quilting in a while. My favorite quilts are baby quilts. I haven't done any art quilting in quite a while.
Circles and Squares entertains Bryce Eleanor when she visits. She spreads it out and plays on it, reads on it, places Edgar on it (although he won't stay), covers herself up on the couch with it, and even takes it to bed with her. It probably gets more use than any of the baby quilts I've made.
Dr. B upped my thyroid meds again, so maybe I'll have a little more energy. Have been going to bed early lately, sleeping for about 9 hours, and still get tired (and apathetic) during the day. Maybe I'll get back to my doll making or begin a new quilt.
Because I've been unusually tired, I've also skipped several morning yoga practices and several classes. This is a paradoxical situation, because if I begin the day with an hour of yoga, I have more energy. As Amelia says to Bryce Eleanor when she hurts herself, "Shake it off!" I'm going to try to do just that and get back to some of my favorite activities.
Today is Amelia's anniversary (a long distance one, since Chris is in Baghdad) and baby brother Marty's birthday. Happy Anniversary, Amelia! Happy Birthday, Marty! August does have some highlights in spite of the heat!
