community, new job for DH and the 4 kids off to a new school. I've been a stay at home mom all of my kids growing up years, and this was no exception. It's hard in a small village where everyone knows everyone and you know no one.
Plus I'm a fairly shy person which doesn't help.
I choose to 'lose' myself in my quilt making. Why I felt I needed to make THIS quilt, is anybody's guess. Probably started with that abandoned house block in the middle(red and yellow). Some left over 4 patches and a few HST's. Also not sure why I chose to go with the R,W,B, and yellow. I literally had to beg, borrow and steal fabrics to use. Some are re-cycled clothing from shirts or blouses. It's pretty obvious I did this row-by-row, not in sections. And then I hand quilted it!! With pigs, and scotties, heart, spider webs and fat little ducks. Almost any section you look at has something different. Talk about foolishness...LOL But it all took a long time, and that was a good thing. By the time I was done, I had met some people, joined a small quilt group and was doing better. It lived at my house long after the youngest son had outgrown it, moved away and married. Just recently it made a journey to his house, and is now on the bed of his son..*VBS* Who apparently loves it as much as his dad did. Makes my heart happy..*VBS*
