October 15-25 my hubs and I traveled east to visit family. My father lives in a retirement community in PA. Due to all the Covid19 restrictions we held off our trip east until we could see Dad. We scheduled two 30 minute visits, 6′ social distancing wearing masks, the distance ended up to be 11′ apart! Dad could not hear us! An aid sat by Dad’s shoulder and repeated everything we said. It was crazy, but I’m thankful I got to see him. While out east, we caught up with our brothers & sisters and their families who live in the area. Besides Dad not being able to hear us, it was a great trip.

Rock Candy quilted. I’ll use a rust fabric for the binding.

  1. Cut pieces for project 4, Rock Candy in #Journey2Nebula. ✔️ Cut, sewn, pieced and quilted. Ready to bind.
  2. Sandwich baby quilt. ✔️ But it will be set aside for a while as plan has changed.
  3. Short week for sewing, hubs and I are doing some traveling the next two weeks.  Hand embroidery just might happen.

    We once took visits for granted, now it is so different , however the time you did have together was really special. Your journey, I have been tempted to start this, but reality prevailed, and I need to finish lots of other projects and blocks. Love your quilting, it is a superb finish.

    Hi Sharon! Oh geez. When my mom was alive, she could never hear Sue speak. It was her pitch or tone that was difficult for her to hear – plus she truly was deaf in one ear. I could speak up just a bit and she would hear me – your story of your dad makes me smile with the memory. I’m so glad you could visit your peeps! It seems extra special now, doesn’t it?! Nice picture of the four of you!! Now on to the stunning piece that’s all together! Holy moly – Rock Candy is just gorgeous, don’t you think? And the rust binding will be perfection as well. What are you doing with this?? I hope you’re hanging it someplace special so you can admire it every single day. Thanks for linking up today! ~smile~ Roseanne

    Rock Candy looks stunning! Is it challenging to sew together?
