Summer is half gone already! I wanted to finish this counted cross stitch sampler on linen that I started seventeen years ago. My two cataract surgeries have left me with no more excuses. It needs more decorative borders before I frame it.
Then back to my Forever Stamp quilt again. Will I ever finish them all??

A fellow quilter gave me this jelly roll and said she knew I could make something with it. The colors are much like my Persian rugs, I have been mulling this over and finally was inspired by the "Over and Down Under" quilts my friends have been making. With the help from quilt teacher, Judy Doenias, I am making a table runner. I do love a challenge. Thank you, Sally!
Now to quilt and bind...

Have been in the quilt doldrums lately. My beloved Jack's Chain is progressing ever so slowly. Knee replacement surgery knocked me out for a long while. Now I really need to get moving on something easier. I have been smitten with my friend Karen's quilt (above)...her version of a Kaffe Fassett design. What the heck! Will kick off the new year with something completely different. The whole world is in a state of disequilibrium anyway!
However, I will not abandon "Jack"

Have started another new quilt! I know I already have too many works-in-progress, but I simply could not resist taking one last class at City Quilter before it closes. "Jack's Chain" is an oldie but goodie. Am piecing it all by hand and want to make it for my son and brand new daughter-in-law for Christmas. Think I'll make it?

My dear friends, Naomi and Geraldine came over to make big heart blocks today. They will be made into quilts for the victims in Orlando. It was a pleasant afternoon considering the ugly tragedy that took place last week. Quilting in rainbow colors is very therapeutic!
