Hand Quilting

Once again, I am back to hand quilting on my hexagon quilt.  There is only the bottom section and borders to do and this quilt will be done.  With all the cold weather we have had this winter, this quilt was most welcome to have on my lap and wrapped around my legs.

Now that Miss Hank is no longer with us, I can hand quilt for hours on end with no interruptions.  Miss Ashes doesn't seem to be interested and stays away ... for now. 

Whenever Miss Hank came to visit and have a snooze on top of my quilt frame, I didn't have the heart to move her away because after experiencing health problems over the last 2 years, we knew her time with us was going to be short .... so I let my little girl interrupt my plans.  There was always other hand work within easy reach for me to work on while she snoozed.  Life is too short and I have learned to savour the moment.

Now, I will just quilt for an extra hour or two each time this quilts gets my attention.

Have a great day!
