Disaster

My house is in disaster mode.  Before I had a new roof added to my house, I had quite a bit of water damage inside – ceilings and walls.  What I hoped would be an easy fix has turned into all the furniture moved, pictures off the walls, everything covered in plastic including the back door and the microwave!!!!

I had been doing some string piecing on my dining room table in the evenings, but had to move all that to the office.  It is a little cramped and messy.

It will be wonderful to have everything patched and painted, but in the mean time I do not particularly enjoy living in this chaos.  Big sigh.

Seasoned Hens

Using Lori Holt’s pattern for a hen, I made this tongue in cheek little quilt titled Seasoned Hens – the seasons of Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter, and the seasons of salt and pepper.

I tried some custom quilting – some figure eights in the sashing, a little motif for the corner, meander in the border, and some cross-hatch for the hen blocks.

I’m happy with the end result and sure had fun making this quilt.
