For the last couple of weeks, this was all I did and I am finally done but still can’t show any photos before the end of January, as this is a surprise for someone special.
In fear of this person coming to my house and catching me working on the project I had to either do it early mornings (5 am) or late nights and should I dare to be brave enough to work a little during the day, I would have to take it out from under the machine, hide it in a cupboard whenever I got up for any short amount of time. No fun working like that and my heart went out to all those crafters without a proper room to work in. If I had to take stuff out and pack it away whenever done, I would never attempt anything.
My eyes have however not stopped wandering on what other quilters are doing and I saw so many interesting ideas that I’d like to give a try….. Graffiti quilts, gradient quilts (or then made with gradient fabric) and fidget quilts for people with Alzheimer’s.
My mom had Alzheimer’s and I remember she’d only read one magazine and the same one article day after day after day. So I can imagine that a person with Alzheimer’s might find stimulation in unzipping a zipper or fastening a button over and over. Something I would really like to do.
I also downloaded a couple of free and paid for patterns but when I will ever get around to doing these, heaven only knows.
