Last winter I began hand-quilting the Scrappy Star, then put away in April or May when it became too hot to hold it on my lap. When I packed it away for the move, it was still too warm to hold on my lap to quilt. The unpacking was a different story. I'm now back at work on it with a handful of blocks left to do, and some work on the borders. I'm seeing a strong possibility of being able to finish it some time this winter.
My cousin, Lori and her husband Eric are visiting this week, spending time between her mom's house and ours. Lori and I haven't seen one another in 10 years, and yet except for catching up on the miscellaneous of our lives, in some ways it seems like we'd just seen each other yesterday. It's always been like that with us.
