mystic eye1 & 2

I was looking at a quilt I made a few years ago and decided to make another version with completely different colours, different quilting and a different shape.  I still really like the first version but I think I like the new version better.

First version

Second version


I had an appointment with my neurologist yesterday.  She confirmed what I had suspected - my multiple sclerosis is transitioning from 'relapsing-remitting' to 'secondary progressive'.  Not really surprising since I've had it for more than 25 years.  It's probable that it will still be quite a slow progression, which is good.  I thought I'd be upset at this new stage of the disease but I don't really feel that way.  Resigned to the fact that it was inevitable, accepting that there will be more 'stuff' to adapt to, thankful that I have support from my family and a few very close friends - mentally I feel like I'm in a pretty good place.

And to finish, here's a photo coz I don't like posts with no pictures - and this one makes me laugh!

keryn's quilt

Here's some photos of the quilt I made for my sister Keryn.  It was meant to be for Christmas last year but I didn't get it finished till June this year.  Better late than never, right?  I did some more stitch-in-the-ditch and  freehand feather practice and was quite pleased with the results.
