Well it has been a rough couple of weeks.
I finally finished the little quilt I made for Alzheimers. Mailed it out last week, just waiting to see when it is posted. I followed the directions from a "Super Mini Quilter" named Martha Wolfersberger. She posted a pattern called Cranberry Relish. Mine was a bit off so I called it Wonky Relish. If you get a chance to look at all the Priority quilts, your jaw will drop when you see hers! Look for them under the $1000 Promise.

I struggled with those 1 inch pieces and gave up. The 4 patch finishes at a 1/2 inch! I didn't even do the secondary block, which actually would have been easier than the star. Also being left handed my star spins counter clockwise. OOPS!
I was going to throw it away, but then remembered that Ami Sims mother continued to make her paint stencils even after being so affected by the disease. I thought to myself, "Would I stop creating and sewing if I were afflicted and my work was not quite perfect"? NO! I would continue to sew and quilt until I could no longer sew on my machine, hold a scissor or a needle. It is my joy and my bliss.
Will start a new one today. Had a wisdom tooth pull yesterday and can't really go anywhere. Good excuse to sew! Do I really need an excuse?? LOL
