Progress: Spring Breeze Quilt
There are soooooo many ways to make half square triangles--and most of them are just not very enjoyable. So I'm just trying to take a few minutes here and there, between naps and chores and therapies and doctor visits and am telling myself that once it's done, it's a quilt, and that's all that matters.
Next step will be to piece the pink print and white windmills, and then I can move on to easier piecing and larger areas and will feel I'm accomplishing more.
Sweet Teen wanted some help with one of her essays yesterday on the surprising level of stress felt by many high-achieving, affluent people. I really hope she finds her passion and just follows it. She says she wants to be the first Asian-American justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. That sounds like waaay too much stress to me.--However, my brain was struggling to hang on to sentences, word order, and word choice yesterday!
Today's schedule includes another evaluation and an appointment with the rehab specialist, hopefully with the opportunity to go over some of the previous evaluations, although I know he won't have received all of them yet.
Be sure to stop by these blogs and check out the work of people who've left links to their works. It's a great way to discover some new blogs, catch up with the work of possibly more familiar bloggers, and discover new quiltmakers. Bloggers love comments, especially those of us who work in semi-isolation.
