An online group is making a quilt to cheer a young woman fighting breast cancer. Although I haven't met her, I read about her life, and her dreams and I hope to encourage her on as she faces this battle when she'll need an extra portion of strength from above.
Each quilter who participates is making a few heart blocks in black, white and pink. I forgot how quick and fun it can be to make a block rather than a whole quilt top. These four were made as leaders and enders for another project.
Sigh. I kicked the brick step in my studio Thursday morning as I rounded the quilt frame. My two smallest toes are purple and very tender. Trust me, you do not need to see a photo of these toes! Purple is a beautiful color in a quilt, but shockingly ugly on a foot. It's always terrible timing to do a clumsy injury. Today, I would have participated in a fencing tournament. I still need to be there since I'm responsible for the venue. It would have been much more fun to join in the swordplay than to sit with a foot propped up. I don't like these lessons in humility.
I'm hoping this heals quickly. It's time to be gardening and getting whipped back into shape, taking walks and jogs around the neighborhood so I can see what everyone's growing in their flower beds. Yes, I'm that stalker neighbor! The one who pretends to enjoy a stroll just to see everyone's landscaping and the birds perched on roofs, trees and bushes.
Enjoy your day!
