I am still going through papers and pictures I have inherited. Look what I found today.
Today we had a morning sky right out of a Maxfield Parrish painting. Quite lovely~

I've been working on the Comfort & Joy quilt since November. I finished the inner part today.
It's smaller than I was expecting at 47 1/2" X 62".
It needs a border and the one on the pattern has more applique. Between hand sewing in long stretches and the side-effects of my Covid shot, my hands are really sore. Well. . . . all my joints are sore. So this little quilt isn't going to get an appliqued border.
One idea is to sew three borders on it. First a stop border, then a border of 2 1/2" assorted squares of the fabrics used in the middle, and then a larger border of the same fabric as the stop border. I was hoping to use up my box of Christmas scraps from my mother's 90's stash but you know how that goes! I think I have more than I had when I started - ha!
I don't have any pieces of fabric that are large enough for the border so I'll have to do some shopping. I was going to go find some today but I've got a fever so I figured I better stay away from others.
I had Covid in June. I've heard those that have had Covid 19 have a more difficult time with side effects from the vaccine. My son, who is a teacher, says the teachers that he works with, that had Covid, are having a harder time. Not good news but it helps to know what to expect, I guess.
