Sandra & Darren got their engagement proofs and I'm having a really hard time deciding which one I like best. Here's a small sampling of some of my favourites.
They both look so happy in all the pictures and just so I don't step on anyone's toes, the pictures are all by HRM Photography.
After being inspired by Mary on Friday, I decided to tackle my stash. I seem to have an over abundance of blues and greens (actually I have an over abundance of every colour, but these are worse than most) so I picked the green and started cutting and sewing. I'm not one of these people that have to make a quilt 'my own' - I'm quite happy to see something I like and copy it exactly - so I went with Mary's Double Four Patch.
Here's what mine looks like so far:
I'm so easily distracted. I have a lot of other things I 'should' be doing like finishing the baby quilt which, as each day passes, is looking more and more like it might be an embroidered pillow instead of a quilt. Machine embroidery isn't my first love and I get bored very quickly with it.
My mind is all over the place today and I'm feeling a bit melancholy as Leo saw another specialist today who made it very clear that this ride isn't over yet - but I'm not going there right now.
I was listening to John Prine this morning - probably most of you haven't even heard of him - he was a folk singer in the 70s. Anyway, I got thinking about some of the lines in his song called "Hello in There" .
