This skirt was made at the Fall Retreat in October 2014 - it has taken almost a year and a half to finish. Of course the supervisor was there every step of the way.
It took another two weeks to stitch the back down. I manage to do about 8 inches or so at a time before I had to put it down for the next day. Frustrating, and a tearful journey. Chef kept on encouraging me and told me that this condition is not forever. What I worry the most about as a quilter is losing the loss of my hands and my eyesight. I can't even type for longer than 10 minutes at a time before the pain prevents me from moving my fingers anymore. I am still off work and I do very little. Chef is doing my hair -- but hey! He does a fantastic ponytail and I CAN pull my pants up by myself finally!
Merry Christmas one and all! I wish you all the joys of the season and a fabulous New Year to you all!
