I'm back..but not very productive yet.  The yardage used was used early in week 27, and I haven't been down to the sewing room since early that week.  My mother died, so we went down to KS for the vigil/rosary and funeral/burial.  She had been in a nursing home for 2.5 years, so it wasn't unexpected--and she had a very peaceful death with a priest, my sister, and her daughter presentI'm so thankful that we had gone down in April to spend some time with her.  I don't think one is ever old enough to lose a parent...I find I am still going through my personal grieving process.

Two Easter fabric table runners accounted for the yardage used.  I want to get buttons so I can attach/detach tassles to the ends--will look for Easter-type buttons when we go to the "big city."  Now I am ready to make a Halloween runner out of a favorite fabric that I've only been taking out occasionally to "pet."  I will post pictures of the table runners and June's UFO the first of July.


  1. So sorry for your loss. Hope you find some comfort in your fabric petting and sewing.

    1. Thank you--my mother loved piecing and handquilting--I have many quilts she made.

  2. Sorry to hear of your mother passing. Hopefully time will heal your aching heart soon. It's nice that you two shared a love of quilting and she will always been looking over your shoulder when you are making quilts.
