I'm thankful that my mother's condition has stabilized and that I am back home, and grateful for other things as well.

Thank you dear blogging friend who bought the two texture studies from Alzheimer's Quilts Initiative.  This helped me make the $1000 Challenge goal!   As an unexpected bonus I received a package of beautiful fabric from Beth Hartford at QuiltersStitchTogether

and a generous gift certificate from Embellishment Village, which I promptly spent.  That was fun!

I'm thankful that the painting which had just started when my mother went into the hospital is finished and that I like the way it looks.  Now if I can get all the pictures rehung, china back in the cabinet, books in bookcases...

Ghost Orchids is back finally and put away.  Yesterday I began some work on my Interpret This! challenge, and this blob may appear there.  The new fabric would work too, but I'm already committed.


But it's looking more and more like the Hoffman Challenge won't happen this year, at least for me.

Glad to hear that your mother is better and that you are home again.

Congrats on the texture study sales and meeting the Challenge goal. Nice bonuses!

This is a lovely post. It made me shift my own focus on things I'm thankful for. I'm so glad you're back home, Kay. I'm glad you're in the studio working with that "blob" as you so eloquently put it. And I think if I were to look back at the comments I left on the Hoffman Challenge, I was all for taking a break this year. It'll be there next year and you'll likely be more aligned to it as well.

Congratulations on making the 1k challenge. Who knew? Very cool. Speaking as your blogging friend I have to say nothing is as amazing on screen.

I'm so fortunate to have snatched up these pieces. Oh and umm, enjoy the process of being reacquainted with your books. I think I'd like that.

Hey, what did you do to that blob of fabric?

I'm glad your mother is on the mend, and that both you and your quilt are back home safe and sound.

Glad to hear that things have settled. Maybe this year is a good one for stepping back from the Hoffman and focusing on other projects.
