Railroad Tracks Quilt and Dear Universe: Please Bugger Off!

I love the colours in this quilt.  And I would never, ever do this much paper piecing.

Quilted with tons of s.i.d.  Added x-hatching in the blue background and some little feathers in the gold centers.


I've been up since about 2:30 this morning.  I think my stress levels might be just a wee bit too high. In the past month...
  • Door knob fell off (bought all new door lock sets = $600).
  • Fridge quit (quickie emergency fridge $400 plus new REAL fridge $3300).
  • New furniture is waiting to be delivered but the old furniture has not sold yet ($2600).
  • Must pick up 4 gallons of pre-purchased paint by month end, a bargain I got last year.  I've been waffling on paint colours but the deadline for pickup is Sept. 30th.
  • Sadie's been eating herself.  She's wearing a cone and is now on antibiotics twice daily for 2 weeks.
  • And the worst news:  my sister passed away unexpectedly last weekend.
Goodbye Sharon.  I'll  miss having a sister.  No one else can answer those dumb questions I have. 😢

Picked this week:  3 (to Sept. 10)
Picked YTD:        83


Please - share your wisdom...
