Finish the quilt for my Friend

Well, I finished the photo quilt that my friend asked me to. I put the photo's on black background fabric. Make it look like the old scrapebook pages. When they were just nothing but black. I pinked cut -out the photo's to also make them look old. Remember when all the photos would have that, and times when the date was printed on the white part of the photo's. Even put black corners on them.

My friend loved it. And I also like the way it turned out. Here's the finish project. I do like having the time to quilt. And try to finish up all my UFO's. I am off to quilt some more...Yippee!!

Plenty of Time..

Well I got laid off from my job. I have been in mourning for a few weeks. Yes, how does that go. First shock, anger, denial, worry, I think I am on depression. What I don't like the most about the whole situation is... I'll be 50 this year, and have to start over. I want to work on retiring not starting over. I was with the company for 8 yrs. DH and myself moved in this area 9 yrs ago....his job relocated here. I loved the job, love the area, etc. I am being offered some perks from the company for being let-go. Like retraining, and help with resumes, etc. I know the job market here is slim.

Think I will go to my sewing room, and quilt for a long while. And just play with some of scraps, I need to finish the quilt I am working on for a friend .... with those photo's. Yeah, I am heading to do some quilting and eat chocolate. That should help with my depression...!!
