i can't type much but i have to post something. i had carpal tunnel surgery and my laptop died. one of these at a time would have been all right, thank you. together they were a little much.
before surgery i made ornaments (similar to above, plus a tree), sold a set, and want to keep adjusting them to sell next year.
i promised myself after ten birds of the air quilts sales i would make a shelter blanket for project night night. (my tenth sale was the set of ornaments.) i love what they do: give kids age 1-10 a bag with a blanket, stuffed animal and book. i want to make a simple 5" or 6" block quilt using lots of fabrics from my stash. jane brocket's book is inspiration. so colorfully happy!
i must say, my sadness over [possibly (not sure yet)] losing all my photos and poems if data can't be retrieved from the deceased laptop, when compared to what one must feel losing a home or livelihood, is not much. here i am on a new laptop, provided by the university, sitting by a fire, recovering in the comfort of my home.
