Tuesday Tidbits

Brad is recovering but it will be a while before he is 100 percent and not a fall risk.  When you are caring for a loved one, I recommend two different kinds of sewing:  binding or embroidery.  Both are portable and don't take much thought.  It's a kind of sewing that I find calming.  While I care for Brad, I've been binding.  I have one quilt left and then I will probably switch to embroidery.

This lap quilt was finished shortly before his surgery and it's for my oldest friend Linda.  She also wanted a table runner to match and since I had a few extra blocks, I was happy to oblige!

I think the most impressive part of the quilt is Terri Trotter's quilting.  Often I let her choose what she thinks will work best for a quilt.  We are old friends and I trust her judgement.  She's never let me down and I love this pattern on the quilt.  It takes it to a whole new level!

Some other things to share with you are comments or emails you shared with me.  First off, Libby wants to know from Sue P. :  "Please share your secret for getting such wonderful garden photographs!!!" (like here).

Kathie L thinks (and I agree!) Libby's mother was ingenious in whipstitching the Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt featured on Friday (here).

Well I'm off to care for hubby!  See you tomorrow and stay safe!
