Sewing therapy...priceless. The past few days I have managed to find some time to putter in the sewing room. The top photo is the Madeira jelly roll strip quilt--all done done. And it has a name!! DH wanted "Life Has Its Ups and Downs"--way too long. "Trip Trap" (think three billy goats gruff)--too obscure. So I settled on "Ups and Downs" in light of the dark horizontal strips pattern. I hope to get a better picture at the guild show in June. My longarmer gave a 20% discount if the quilt would be hung in the show (she wants to increase business) so in the show it will go LOL! The second photo is of two little throw pillows I stitched up, using two Mexican embroidery pieces I bought on the trip. Of course, the bed needs LOTS more throw pillows. Last photo is Circuit Rider BOMs. This month's pattern is the lower right block, Spring Glory. It was in the Star Magazine, buried among all the newspapers that had piled up during the trip. Glad to have rescued it!
