Catching Up

After spending the day at my son's house on Saturday, we returned to a neighborhood that was flooded with light.  Hip hip hooray!  Electricity, A/C, TV, internet.  All good, except... my friend, my guest blogger from last week, Kelly, had a tree fall during the storm onto the roof of her car.

She was driving.  It landed on her head.  It broke the vertebrae between her skull and her spine.  Ligaments were torn.  Her niece, in the passenger seat was untouched!  OMG.  But no paralysis.  I went to visit her today in the hospital.  She's flat on her back with a neck brace.  She's going to be fine.  Maybe a long recuperation, but as Kelly said "I may not be able to sew, but I can shop."  Spoken like a true fabric collector!  We're all there for you Kelly.  Everything seems to pale in comparison. 

I am happy to report that I have finished the 3 torah covers.  Before I share them with my blog readers, I want to present them to the temple.  I am very pleased with how they turned out.  The most stressful step for me was attaching the "skirt" to the top.  Happily,  it went very well. 

So now, after such a long term project, it's time to first clean my studio and then have a fun sewing day.  What do you do when you finish a quilt/project?  Leave me a comment to share.


  1. I was originally from west chester. That was a crazy storm last week. Hope your friend feels better soon.
    Regarding your question...I try to finish the next unfinished project -- I have plenty to pick from!

  2. I have a great're finished with your massive project, so I say it's time for you to learn how to use a warping board....and practice makes perfect!....this will be very relaxing for me!!

  3. You've peaked my curiosity. What is a waping board?


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear from you.
