It’s Finished!

I’m so excited!  I just finished my first applique’ quilt.  I started it 30 years ago, almost to the day.  It’s a floral wreath, heavily hand quilted.  I have no excuse for why it took me 30 years.  The poor thing has been dragged around to two different houses, has survived 7 extensive remodeling projects and is now finally just plain gorgeous.  Finishing a quilt is such a good feeling, isn’t it?  I haven’t done much quilting this past year.  I took my thimble off to type my book, The Navel Diaries: How I Lost My Belly Button and Found Myself.  The book is about all the things that are happening to me as I become “mature”:  losing my gorgeous navel to the racking cough of pneumonia, getting some gray hair and one white eyebrow hair, getting so much shorter.  I wasn’t expecting any of this!  Were you?  This aging business is so full of surprises.  Woo Hoo–boomers rule.  You’re invited to the website to check out the book and the blog.
