Design Wall Monday
My Design Wall - April 15th - Tax Day 2013
After surviving the last year I am just so GLAD to have my taxes done today!! I literally signed them on Friday April 12th and my tax attorney put them in the mail for me!! Hooray!!! Taxes were always Jeff's job and he really did them well. After his death I didn't have a clue what to do but with the help of others I am proud to say the ANNUAL TAXES are done. I still have Estate Taxes which need to be filed by May 17th but they are almost ready. I will feel a load has been lifted when everything with the Feds is completed. So in honor of this special day I have Hung this wallhanging on my design wall. I definantly need some therapy after completing my taxes this year. My college roomie, Debby, made this for me recently and I love it. I have been feeling a little blue again with all the changes in my life....but spring has sprung and I am looking up again. I have been sewing and getting my "Therapy Sessions" more frequently.
During Spring Break I helped a good friend make a T-Shirt quilt for her daughter who is graduating from High Solchool in May. I think I opened a whole new world up to her. She is a physician and quilting was really a new realm for her. She picked it up quickly and was actively involved in the design and piecing process.
This was our beginning layout design.
We sashed the quilt in her high school colors.
This is the back of the quilt. We used a gray sheet that was a very high thread count. It worked beautifully and is so very soft and cuddly. I embroidered the label on my Viking Designer SE.
It is put away in seclusion until her mother gifts it to her at her graduation party.
It was so fun to be a part of such a special gift.
