Lately it seems as if we have been living in limbo. The decision was made to start over on the kitchen floor finish. So rather than putting things away and getting settled in, we have been waiting for the new guy to come do his magic on the mess we were previously left. It's a dusty, noisy, smelly process. Keep your fingers crossed that the result will be gorgeous and worth the wait.
So how does a girl pass the time? Well, like Rapunzel - I have kept myself locked upstairs. But instead of spinning straw into gold, I've been cutting little itty bitty pieces of fabric to make the quilts in a Cheri Payne design.
These are a little like eating potato chips - impossible to cut just one. Each one of those bags has enough pieces cut to make two or more quilts. Or perhaps just a larger version of the original. Time will tell.
I'm working on another Cheri Payne design as a memory quilt for Harper.
Oh, I don't need any help remembering her. But have always loved this design so the time seemed right to make it. Having something to do with my hands and my brain has been helpful.
Today we are bracing for a Nor'easter. I don't really know what to expect but as long as the power holds out, I'll have plenty to keep me busy.
