It's been a GOOD, productive morning! Hooray!!!!
This is where I stand on mom's quilt right now. I got all of the sashing done this morning as my pain level was pretty low and my hands weren't shaking too badly. I just had to wash the second blood stain out of the quilt, though, so my body is telling me it is time to stop, lol. I have had major balance issues since I woke up this morning. I almost fell when I went to take my first steps...fortunately there was a wall there to catch me. So I am going to spend all day today on my tush. At least that way I am safe!
I just realized when I hung the quilt that I forgot to do the pretty stitching connecting the quarter dresdens in the center block. I wrote myself a note and put it on my sewing table. My memory is so bad these days that I don't want to forget to do it! Next I will be adding a 6" (I think) white sash to the top and bottom. I am going to machine embroider a cupcake border into the sash...so I have to do a sample to see the finished size of the embroidery, then I can make the height of the sash appropriate to the design. Then comes a 3-4 inch wide "candy" border, the four corners of which will be embroidered sweets. Then the binding. I haven't decided the material yet for the "candy" border...I will make the decision when I have the sash embroidery done and attached. While I had a pretty good idea of my overall design going into this...my quilt designs tend to "tighten up" as I go along.
Now that I am done with my crafting for today (unless the tremor improves) I think I will head downstairs to either watch TV or read...both keep me safely on the sofa!
I'll keep you posted as I get more done!
