It’s a Miracle!

I spent most of the day feeling achy and mopey, even Aleve made no difference. All of a sudden, this evening, I felt better. I went to the studio and quilted Kimono III. I did much closer quilting than I did on the other two. I used a metallic red in close quilting lines. I love how it looks for this piece.

Here is another detail.

I am doing a plain black satin stitch edge. I am happy to have this done. I still want to dye up some scarves and make a few fabric postcards.

Thank you everyone for your good wished whilst I was moping around.

I am going to do Easter dinner. I think I will do roasted salmon and veggies. I am making a birthday cake for Steph, since we didn’t have a chance to do that this week.

We are supposed to have wild, wet and windy weather for the next few days so it will not seem very Eastery. But, we will make the best of it. There will be chocolate!!

Hope you all will have a lovely holiday week-end, whatever you are celebrating.

    Happy Easter. Here’s to Spring and rebirth (of creativity and heath perhaps?).

    love that fabric on the lower right side of the second picture!

    Craig brought me back sooooo many used kimonos from his Tokyo layovers, that I may just have to bite the bullet, cut into them and make one or two of these kimono quilts!

    glad you’re feeling better……sounds like you’ll have a glorious Easter/birthday celebration.
