Going Forward..I Think

Some days I feel like I actually  have my act together but then I find out I really don't.  One step forward and two steps back.  I'm still dealing with post funeral tasks and trying to find time to take care of quilting projects.  I did manage to get the doll quilt finished and ready to send out to my swap partner.  I have spent several hours making thank you cards for my special friends which has been very therapeutic for me.  Then the phone rings throughout the day and before I know it, time has flown by and I feel like I haven't accomplished a thing.

The fair starts this week.  I'm going to show you what I'm taking.

 This is my crazy quilt which I wasn't going to show before the fair but what the heck.  The outside border is solid quilting with hot fix red crystals on the top.  The picture really doesn't do it justice.  It took me a long time to do..over a year..and I really like it.  I took it to the neighboring county in July to the fair and received 2nd place.  Let's see how it does locally.

I decided to take the scrappy star quilt.

 And the flannel woodland quilt.

 I also have a knitting entry of a scarf and fingerless gloves and I think I'll have to enter my tomatoes.  I need to share their beauty.

 They look like prize winners to me, don't you think?  

Time to go to bed.  I'm sleeping better now, but when I was waking up at 2 a.m., that's when I did a good amount of quilting.  Oh well.  Minnie and I will establish a new normal one of these days.

Keep taking it one day at at time. You'll always miss him, but, you will learn how to get threw life to a new life.
