The Storyteller Quilt and "business casual" fashion advice

Here is a Block of the Month from Connecting Threads:  "The Storyteller".

The central medallion gave me some challenges as far as quilting designs, but I think it turned out well.

Six borders.  Yah.

Gorgeous back.

This is the only way you can see the Celtic Braid design in the outer border.

BUSINESS CASUAL ATTIRE
This does not qualify.  My advice, if you are expecting customers, is to NOT dress like this.  I was painting the bedroom.  That took me longer than I anticipated, and the customers arrived earlier than anticipated, so, you know... I look bad.
Speaking of painting; I really miss the days when I could go up and down the ladder a million times, then crawl around on the hard floor for hours, and STILL have energy to go out and party all night with friends.  These days when I'm finished I need help to crawl down the five stairs to the kitchen so I can open the aspirin bottle.  Afterwards, someone needs to tip me over into a hot bath with epsom salts.  sigh.

    Yes, yes, and yes again. Recently did some painting myself; I had exactly that same result.

    1. Riley, I am finding that ageing is a double- edged sword. Glorious and a p.i.t.a. at the same time!
