3 of Swords – Still working through it…

IMG 6174 3 of Swords   Still working through it...

Each day gets a little better and then I get hit with a wopper every now and then that sets me back. Today has been a hard day but mostly because I am feeling overwhelmed by my daughters on going health problems and the health insurance issues that go with it. I can handle an awful lot, but sometimes it is just too much.

I have made a bit more progress on this quilt, machine stitching the batting, putting two different threads through the needle together to get bolder lines. I have finished the majority of the machine quilting and have satin stitched a large image of the 3 of swords (tarot card) in black thread on top. I am going to work some more hand stitching into the open batting areas with embroidery floss using big bold stitches, before I block it and trim it to size. This is actually a vertical quilt, I have only photographed a portion of it, so when I get it finished I will post a full photo.

    So many arms are holding you. Three of swords will surely move on out of your life before long.

  8. Sending good thoughts your way…stay strong and know there are lots of friends out here who care. Beautiful work as usual…can’t wait to see the whole piece!

  9. if you lived in a woodsy area, i would suggest throwing yucky potatoes at trees, tends to relieve stress and bring on smiles. but i don’t think oprah would like you smacking her building with rotten veggies or fruit, though i am sure you would feel better afterward….

    word verification is ‘fuzzled’…good word!
