Life is overwhelming sometimes. We lost our very dear neighbor to a quick bout with cancer. It happened a couple weeks ago, but it is quite fresh still as we are watching everything being taken out of her house. She lived on one side of us and her daughter lives on the other side of us. We are surrounded by family, even if it isn't ours; we made it ours. She was an extra pair of eyes on my kids while they played in the yard. We will miss her very much.
Onto happier things, I have finally finished binding my Folksy Coins quilt. I really like the burgandy/red cotton lawn I used for binding. It matches the little bits of red in the coins and I like it! For a flannel blanket, I really think it should be softer, but it's only been washed once. I might have to keep this one for "flannel testing" and "research." haha!
I really can't decide if I like this one or not........ I usually love my finished quilts, but this one has been worked on through a very funky time.....maybe it picked up some of my angst and worry. Hopefully my next finish will be filled with fun and happy! Right?
