(in one of her happier moments!...sitting on the can in the middle of the living room)
The newer casts are purple, and fit like thin socks. In theory she will be walking in these in a few days. Much to my surprise, even after being put to sleep this morning, she's in very good spirits this afternoon. She wanted to go grocery shopping with me, which I was unsure she ought to do without another parent to help. But she did great. I had forgotten what it was like to get a bunch of inappropriate looks from strangers -- as though we inflicted some kind of injury to this child. Unbelievable. As a very young infant, she had casts from birth to about 12 weeks. The looks we'd get used to astound me. But she is doing great, and is counting down the next 34 days.
Here's a customer quilt I will be sending on to it's owner on Tuesday. It's a great 81" round robin quilt.
I did some feather variations, some flowers, and a lot of very detailed quilting.
I hope that the owner will like how her quilt was transformed.
I'm off to MQX tomorrow, and if you are wondering if I am excited, wonder no more. I cannot wait to see the quilts!!! I have spent much time this week (ok, some time -- not too much) on the quilting of one of my quilts. Too much detailed quilting and use of poorer back posture. My back is killing me. I have been quilting around MANY bias strips (go back a post or two for pics) and trying my hardest not to stitch ON the bias strip.
Have a nice weekend and I will most definitely return with some eye candy for all.
