Nothing is ever new, I've realized, except everything.
This is new for me. I'm designing my first quilt from top to bottom, so to speak. It's for a dear friend of mine. I'm enjoying the process very much so far, I must say.
And I am diligently plugging away at Liz's Triangle Madness QAL.
250 HST's and counting...
And: I had my first quilting accident. I was distracted and put a machine needle through my finger. See that mark on my middle finger there? the needle went right through the nail, broke off, and I had to have it extracted at the ER.
That's the broken off needle. It gives an idea of how much metal was stuck in my finger.
I could show you a really graphic shot of my finger right after it all happened, but that really isn't necessary now. Needless to say, I am grateful for all my digits, and for my overall health. And for my husband, who insisted on bringing me to the ER even though all I wanted was a shot of whiskey and a pair of pliers.
Happy New Year. Don't take anything for granted. Everything is a Gift. Accept it, and make the best use of it as you can.
