A test project I can now show

Jen, over at Patterns by Jen (PBJ) (here) is launching her Star Light, Star Bright sampler today. I made the small size it is approximately 30" square. She has a larger quilt and a couple of table runners in the pattern also. As one might expect I made mine scrappy. A friend had given me a baggie with many of the pieces of used for this little project. I put a nice soft flannel on the back and it is now ready to donate.
I am so happy to be back sewing again and am back to pattern testing also.
Physio is progressing reasonably well. Knee is bending, just not as far as it is supposed to. I see the doctor again in early July.
My main sewing machine has had a trip to the spa and it isn't the same sewing on the back up but I imagine there are many thousands of people who either don't have a machine or for sure don't have a back up.
It is starting to look like a fairly busy summer. The boys are going to spend a big chuck of July with their other Grandma and then they will spend three weeks (every other week) here in August. Piecefully, Joanne

  1. Thank you so much for testing, Joanne, you do a fabulous job of helping me make sure everything is correct and makes sense. I"m so glad you are healing and able to start sewing again!

  2. Grand to see you back in the swing of things again.

  3. Like the colors even if it is scrapy. You sure are seeing a lot of sampler quilts now. Be patient with that knee, keep up with PT.

  4. Congrats on this beautiful finish. I love it. ;^)
