My quilting mojo is still very much absent from my life, even nearly four years after the death of my son. Jeffrey loved my quilts and would want me to keep designing them. I’m not sure why the thought of making a quilt overwhelms me just thinking about it. It now takes me a year to make a quilt, whereas I used to whip out one a month.
Bedazzled is a quilt I designed in Electric Quilt after he passed. I even purchased the necessary ruler to make the quilt, and convinced myself that someone with my terrible math skills could tackle this one. I did manage to draw it, and if I did that, surely I can sew it!
This quilt has been on my mind lately, and half of me would like to create it, the other half is telling me I’m not ready for such a quilt, the challenge will depress me instead of filling me with joy, and to stick with very basic quilts until I move past this phase. Perhaps I will make this one my 2021 resolution.
My creative side is satisfied with baking these days, but I’m gaining weight at a rapid pace, it’s got to stop!
I’ve been playing around with garlic cheese bread. Loads of butter and cheese, on top of the always fattening dough, is wreaking havoc on my hips and thighs!
I’m stilling tweaking the dough on this one (texture and bake wise) but Jim and I are in love with the flavors. We ate the entire thing with our dinner last night, wiping out any positive effects from the six and a half mile walk I took yesterday, which is twice my normal amount.
When I am happy with the dough portion of the recipe, I will share it.
I’m not sure my body is up to another long walk today, but I will get a short one in at least!
