Keeping Busy…

Many have asked what I’ve been doing to keep myself busy while I’ve been allowing my body to heal.  Well, besides spending a great deal of time with the Lord and my children, I have been quilting.  Since my hands don’t want to work to knit or crochet with the repetitiveness of the stitches, I have been quilting.  Now, I’m sure your asking yourself what is the difference and how could I quilt without having the same issues.  I think it’s due to the fact that I am free hand stitching and I only sew a little, then cut the thread stop and repeat.  I have had some issues at times and I stop for a day or two and then am able to get back into it.

Thus far since January, I have been able to make 1 full/queen quilt, hand piecing the squares together, and I have hand quilted 4 lap quilts measuring 4×6 to 3×6 in size and I’ve made 3 table top runners.   One of my friends joins me and she calls it guilt free quilting!   It’s been very therapeutic for my mind to at least accomplish something and I look forward to making my second full/queen for our son.

Who knows, maybe it’s the start of a new business.  🙂

Adding in a little kitty help.  She makes sure to adjust the squares to her liking rather than mine.  ha ha

  1. Sherry, this is beautiful, and so are the quilts! Having an ever-so-slight (NOT!) idea who your guilt-free quilting buddy is, I am very happy for the fellowship you two are having.

    Walt spoke with Gary tonight, and he confirmed that you are having more good days since the heart issue was settled. Being active is great therapy for you; being inactive is just NOT you!

    We thank God we are getting our Sherry back, and we love you,

    1. Oh Joie, I tearfully thank you… You must join us sometime for our guilt free quilting!
      Yes, more good days than bad, however, I am tired and battling a day long migraine tonight. This too shall pass. Maybe my brain is waking up after such a long siege…
      Ha ha ha
      See you soon sweet lady!

  2. Sherry, these are beautiful! So glad you are having more good days. I’ll be praying for you. Maybe you can teach me to quilt some day. 🙂 I’ve always wanted to learn.
