As far as my quilting goes, I'm happily putting together the puffs. Only a few more big seams to go. But I've been busy doing housework, and assorted errands. My big floor lamp in my work room conked out. (There's no ceiling light in here.) It's already been repaired once. I'm going to get a new one. I went to the stores today, and the kind of lamp I wanted seems to be cheaper than it used to be. Those floor lamps have a weight in the bottom, so I have to get one of my male relatives to take it apart and discard it, and help me to get the new one. I can't lift anything heavy. I've been thinking about my next quilt project. However, I have an unfinished quilt in my work box. And I've been thinking of taking all those assorted embroidery pieces I've made over the years and putting them together into a coverlet. There's no way I could frame and hang up all those things, and besides, I already have several needlework pictures that I made adorning the place. And forget about pillows--I'm guilty of making more of those than I need.

Making embroideries into a quilt is a great idea. It's will be a wonderful way to showcase them. We too have more art than we have room for on our walls.

Personally I prefer to have a few things on the go at once - I get bored otherwise. I switch between them all the time. I have a lot of embroidered dressing table sets etc from my Grandmothers, but I don't use them. Not my style, but I don't want to throw them out. I've often wondered if I could make something out of them. Looking forward to some ideas from you.
