First project for 2018 is complete.....

Since I am sitting here recovering from surgery, I made sure I had some hand projects to keep me busy for a week or so.

The first one completed is my yellow checkerboard quilt. The binding was machine stitched on the day before surgery with the idea that I would hand stitch it down after.  

So, here is #1 for 2018.

Not much yellow thread to spare, but sure glad I had yellow at all.  

There are a couple knit projects to work on; and if I feel like sitting in front of the sewing machine, I have some blocks that need to be put into a top, but we will see.

For now, I am healing and just glad there are things to keep me occupied if the need arises. 

Happy Quilting!


  1. (Anonymous) Sharon: Well now, you've got to be feeling a bit better if you can be both on the computer AND stitching that binding. That is good news!

  2. Lovely image of your yellow and white checkerboard love the color of yellow you used!
    Take care...

  3. That is a great photo. You'll need to put yellow thread on your shopping list now! Glad you're feeling well enough to do something.

  4. A great finish to a beautiful quilt!
    Wishing you a full and speedy recovery.



Ahhh.....another finish.  This was an "old" one, too.  I am figuring at least 10 years. This is called the Nymph Tee by Conn...
