Quilt Work in Progress

 Strips cut.
Just a teeny bit of the center stitched.

Sweet Teen sat down and made a list of as many behaviors as she can think of that have changed since I was kicked in the head.  Among many other things, she says I have a hard time staying focused and that I do things much more slowly.  Yes, I've noticed those, but I guess those behaviors are much more intense than I realized.  For years I've had to advocate for greater patience, more strategies, more time to complete tasks, and sometimes just waiting until the next day with general ed teachers who just don't understand the realities of traumatic brain injuries and how they can limit the productivity of students with TBI.  Now despite all that, I have to admit that my understanding was very limited too.  First hand experience is something we don't want, but I have to admit that it's certainly a growth experience. (And my injury is much less severe than those many of my students have had!)

Okay, now to get at least a little bit done before heading to the city.....
Although first I'm going to link to some other blogs so you can easily go see other people who are making more progress than I...

Esther's WIPs on Wednesdays
Connie at Quilting by the River
Lee's WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


Do visit some of the very interesting blogs in their Linky Parties and leave comments for the quiltmakers.  I've found some absolutely wonderful, little known blogs that way.


Happy quiltmaking......

Beautiful fabrics and I really like the block center. I'm sure this will be beautiful when done and there isn't any hurry, just enjoy the process. Thanks for sharing!

I love the colors you are using and I think that it will turn out beautiful. Sometimes when things happen to us we truly learn what walk a mile in their shoes means. As long as you are enjoying life and what you are doing that is all that counts :) blessings to you1

Love the fabrics you are using and will enjoy following as you move forward with it. As Kate said, enjoy the process - it is very rewarding. Best!

Did you write about your accident? I would be interested in reading about it. =)

I am confused because I thought you had a teenage son! Sweet Teen could make a list about me too, I guess :)

Now my comment about you getting a daughter in law must sound really weird! LOL

I'm sorry about your accident. You are doing great work. I also work very slowly and enjoy it that way.

I've never known what to do with all the lovely pieces of hand-dyed I bought from one particular person over the years. They are gorgeous, just didn't have a particular plan in mind. I think this would work nicely for some greens!
