Picking Up Where I Left Off

This is my Alternate Universe piece. I discharged this to represent how I feel some days — that I have awakened in an alternate universe that is upside down and in reverse. I was doing seed stitching on the moons and planets when my winter/spring malaise hit.

I am on a quest to pick up work that I had started and finish them. I am almost finished with the hand-stitching so that I can soon start the machine quilting which will probably be tedious. Here is a detail:

So that is what I have been up to for the last couple of days. Tomorrow, Terry is coming over so that we can get the Twelve by Twelve quilts attached to the felt panels and package them up to ship to Houston – woo hoo – it is coming up in about 6 weeks!!

Yesterday, I saw one of the eye docs and she proclaimed my eye beautifully healthy. She said she could tell that I have been using my eye drops correctly.

    Gerrie, this looks very interesting. A little bit of alternate work for you. I know what you mean about finishing a project that’s hung around for awhile. I have to finish what i started last Spring, too!

    Good news on your eye! Wish I was coming over too, to help with the quilts.
