Absinthe Minded

After fighting a head cold for the last few days, I've finished my third quilt this year. Hurray!

I've spent all morning sneezing and stitching on my crazy binding. In no way is this a traditional quilt. Crazy quilt is more like it!

How do you like it's name? Absinthe Minded is my Hubby's brilliant suggestion. I love it! Appropriately named.

Glad to mark another UFO off my list. Time to start another!

I've drawn a name from the hat, and that name is, Sunny! Congratulation Sunny!

I like this "Pass it on" idea so much, I know I'll be doing it again soon. So keep watching for another one to adopt.

Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be back when I can. Next week I'm scheduled for jury duty. Great time to do some appliqué. Who knows how long this will take! Wish me luck.

Take care, Brandie

Yippee!! I'll be sending you my address. I've been decluttering, so if I have more than will fit in the box when it's time to pass on, I may start another one myself!

I love this quilt and think you've done a fantastic job! I don't understand the disparaging remarks you have made about it. Maybe you've just lived a little too close a little too long. Maybe, in a while, when you look at it you will be more able to appreciate your hard work and design. Like child birth, the strugles of the process will fade and all you will see is your lovely creation!
