Sweet Clementine

Are you busy finishing up the summertime?   Painting?  Getting kids
ready for school? Quilts for fall Birthdays?........

have to love these quilts!!!

Recently, I purchased an new Stencil from  Cindy Needham  
I love her work and all she offers to help us finish a quilt top with great ideas of quilting it. 



Have a Sweet Creative Monday-Friday kind of week!!

Markings



Leah Day did a great job in comparing Surface Marking a Quilt in this video.....so many ideas are popping into my thread bare longarmed brain!!  How about you?

I am working on my married daughters Swoon Quilt....
Leah's Swoon


Some Clouds Do bring Us Rain
......with  sciatica going on I work in shorter intervals than I did before this ugly attack....I am swimming everyday if the thunderstorms give me a break this summer in SC!!.
....we are NOT complaining about the rain......the holistic DR that I am going to started me on Thyroid support as my level finally fell below normal...it has been low normal before....so T3 is getting some attention and with that he hopes to see my sugar levels come down and THEY ARE!!....so that will help with my nerve inflammation also.....the Chiropractor moved me to every 2 weeks as he see progress in muscle memory with my adjustment to my L4.....rt leg shorter than left leg due to right hip higher than the left.....I still think it was growing up in a large family that always had babies to carry on my rt hip as I grew up.....even my Mom entered in and had 3 girls after she was 41....making my life spicey for sure!!........

Take care of your priformis muscle as you sit and quilt....stretch, exercise, use a good therapeutic chair cushion....don't go where I have been since February!!...

Have  a blessed day......IT IS A GOOD DAY TO HAVE A GOOD DAY!!!

hooked on a feeling......to see a Quilt finished up.
Using the French General fabrics I think this Swoon is unique and
