Instead, I found two new quilting projects to start. First, I found this Love in Bloom wallhanging ...... and just happen to have the perfect narrow wall between my dining room and front hall where it will fit. So, I cut out all the necessary pieces ...... and managed to hand sew one "heart" block together.
I particularly found sitting and hand-stitching the "daisies" for my table runner relaxing, so I have intentions of keeping a basket of quilt parts handy just for that purpose. May take me a while to complete these two projects, but I hope to devote a little more evening / weekend time to doing these creative "soul-nourishing" things.
Oh, did you notice my laptop in some of the photos above? I had been catching up on Coronation Street episodes via the CBC website, and noticed a whole list of CBC offerings available for online viewing. I did a little sampling, and discovered Heartland, a great little TV show filmed in Alberta. So Heartland kept me company while I cut quilt blocks.
