I’m sorry I haven’t recorded for a few weeks. I had planned to get back to it this week, but, alas, no video.
I haven’t been very crafty lately but I have done some cleaning and organizing in my sewing room and I can find things a bit better now. But that’s not the main reason I haven’t been recording or crafting. The main reason is because I’ve been depressed for a few weeks. My nephew and his wife were riding their motorcycle (he was driving; she was on the back) about 3 weeks ago and they were in a wreck. Lolita was killed and Mike was seriously injured. He was in ICU for 2 weeks with surgery, several broken bones (including the sternum) and was on feeding and breathing tubes. He was finally moved to a regular floor last week with no tubes. I heard yesterday that he will soon be moving to a rehab center. As bad as his physical injuries were, the loss of his wife is a much deeper injury.
Then this past weekend I found out that a friend of about 15 years, her brother and 20 year old son were in a car accident. Her son, Josh, was killed. Josh was one of the sweetest children I’ve ever known. He had Down’s Syndrome and autism. Although he was nonverbal, he was a loving child.
So, this has not been a very happy month for me. And I need to get back to the sewing room for some quilt therapy.
I don’t have anything to show this week but have made some progress on a couple of things. I put blocks together to form rows on a UFO so the top should should be done for next week. I’ve decided to make the top row of my YOD a family picture gallery and have put a couple of photos in frames but I don’t want to show this row or the blocks on it until I show the completed quilt top. I’ve also still been working on organizing my sewing room.
Have a great week everybody! I’ll be watching your videos.
Chris’s quilt is Weave it Be designed by Angela Walters of The Midnight Quilter.
Believe it or not, I recorded this yesterday but it after 3 hours it still hadn’t uploaded so I turned it off and tried again today. Only took 10 minutes or so. Geez!
Sorry I haven’t posted in a couple of months but I have been watching. I’ll try to do better at posting!
