Hello again from your long lost quilter...(LOL)
I have been quite ill trying to kick off this infection and so haven't made
a whole lot of progress on my Gypsy Wannabe.
I finally got the twosie strips into foursies this afternoon and was
thrilled to be able to sew without that hacking cough sound in the background!!

This is way too big for me to photograph in its entirety
(Didn't I just finish saying "No more big quilt"???) so...

as additional sparks of
(I will be hand big stitch quilting this BIG baby so am
pressing all seams open to ease my needling....)
On that happy note I will retire to my afternoon necessary nap...
hugs to all,
