Recovery Tools

A few weeks after my accident in October, as I was beside myself with anxiety and confusion, my friend Luanne suggested I work on a textile project. She knew how happy I am when working with my hands and fabric. It was just the thing I needed to help me. She brought over a "jelly roll" made by Mode fabrics. A "jelly roll" is made of strips of coordinated fabrics, which you can use to create your own project. I decided to make a quilt, all by hand. It was very comforting to match up colors that I liked. In my mind I told myself, if I could finish this project, I would be on my way to getting healthy. Quilt started end of October 2009 - finished April 13, 2010.
