June Bug

Well it has been a very long May. I am glad it is over. My middle daughter move back home, from
Seattle WA, after being gone for 5 years. It is quite an adjustment having someone underfoot after all these years. Quite a lot of head banging while we get use to each other again. Lots of tension and stress. Hoping that it is a short stay as it is time for her to get on with her life. The economy and job search being to bad made this move necessary.

So we had to clean out the back room for her and now I have tubs of stuff to find new hiding places for. I tried real hard not to mess up my sewing room after all that work cleaning it up in April. I only ended up with four tubs on the floor in there. They have to go because I can not sandwich my quilts on the drafting table, since I can't move it to the center of the room.  The room is only 10 x 10 ft.

None the less I have made a Alzheimer's Art quilt. I am starting to enjoy the small quilt projects. They don't take up to much time or space and it is a good way to use scraps and raise money for Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. I feel that one day I will go down that path and maybe there will be hope for me to atleast recognize my loved ones.
This one was a challenge to myself to just use the scraps that were on top of my cutting table. I keep it pretty clean because of Puddy, the quilt inspector. She is a curious cat that likes to eat thread if she can get her paws on it.
After I finished this one, started on my Amish Doll quilt for the swap on about.com quilters forum. Nice bunch of ladies. Hopefully I will get to meet some of them one day.
