The wall hanging top is finished, it's backed and sandwiched.
And the hand quilting has begun.
I'm a trifle handicapped though 'cause I have a cut on the end of my needle-pulling thumb that was healed, I thought, but I keep popping it open. (Oh, yes, quilting is a very hazardous obsession.) Working with a bandaid on the thumb seems even more of a handicap. (Whine, whine.)
Worry thee not, I shall persevere. (Not much keeps me from quilting when I have the chance!)
I live with my husband on a small homestead in Northern Minnesota. Our daughter currently lives in a small cabin in the woods not too far from us.
Our place is located outside a small town and a two and a half hour's drive from the nearest big city. Trips to the city are infrequent, well-planned, and exhausting!
We currently raise chickens and have hives of honey bees. Raising some of our meat and most of our fruits and vegetables is a priority for us; so, along with our birds for meat and eggs, we have fruit trees, berry patches and a huge vegetable garden.
Quilting is my passion, and I could happily spend each day in my quilt studio if I weren't happily spending each day out in the garden. Good thing we have winters up here; Mother Nature helps keep my life balanced.
