Would you care to join me in some freshly made pink lemonade?
No, not that kind…the quilted kind!
I finished piecing my version of Lori’s Pink Lemonade, a quilt-along that she hosted back in January. I thought that I would be able to finish hand quilting it during the six weeks that I was away for my radiation and chemo treatments but such was not the case. During that time, I had absolutely NO interest in anything quilting related…except for perhaps looking at pictures in magazines…and wondered if the spark would ever be rekindled.

Well, I’m happy to say that it has…and with a vengeance!
On Sunday I finished the hand quilting and just this morning, sewed the last stitch on the binding. Then I washed it and tossed it in the dryer to give it that aged, vintage and crinkled look.
Here’s the back…complete with my new label.
♥ those labels!
I promised myself that I would finish up any projects that I had lying around before starting into something new and that’s what I’m doing. Two down and one to go.
Next on the list?

I can’t tell you how good it feels to be back in my studio again!!!
