Some of This; Some of That 6/2/21

 Hello, I know it's been awhile. Days are so different right now.  Not too much time for quilting as I am caregiving my 95 year-old Mom who has progressive dementia.  My sister takes two days and I take two days - my brothers do the other three. My stressor is I live an hour away and the traffic is terrible. That's what I dread. I've taken to spending the night between my two days to cut down on the driving.  I wish I could have her at my house, but she wants to stay with her things around her, so we all agree it is better this way for now.  We are grateful she still remembers all four of us. When I'm home I do try to do some sewing even if it's only 10 minutes a day. So here is what I've managed to move forward on:

I finished quilting my medallion quilt.  It still needs to be bound. Got the strips cut - just have to join them and get to it. Geesh -no photo of the front taken - here's two that kind of show the quilting - LOL did too good a job in picking thread that blends.

I'll post the front when it's bound and finished.

Also got a baby quilt done that I'll be sending to Little Lambs as my contribution to Sarah's Hands2Help challenge for 2021.

I hope you are doing well and keeping safe. Blessings to you all,

Finished that baby quilt top:

and have 12 more string blocks to make. There is less time to sew as I'm becoming more a caregiver for my 95 year old mom an hour's drive away.  Blessings.


This and That this 4/11/21

 Working on my April Color Block QAL quilt:

Needs one more border. Then I can try Debbie's nifty FMQ motif.

Working on a commission quilt.  Here is a couple of the 26 blocks I have to make:
They need a good pressing.  All from stash.

And only have 3 corners of this quilt to quilt to finish my SAHRR, then get it bound - woohoo. 

What are you up to?  I'll be linking to Design Wall Monday. See you there.

Alleluia, Christ is Risen

 My prayer for all of us this Easter Season:

May the joy of this Easter Season deepen within us.
May the hope of our Risen Christ take root within us.
May our entire lives radiate what we believe.
May our joy, our hope, and our light point others to the Risen Christ!
Easter is a day full of joy as we celebrate the fact that darkness and evil did not win. God’s goodness and light and love won, and this is why we have reason to hope. May you and your loved ones have a blessed Easter full of joy and hope.
