Taking a little break

I will need to take a little break very soon from making my quilts.  In October I was diagnosed with my second bout of breast cancer. (3rd cancer of my life) The first breast cancer, 10 years ago, I got away with a lumpectomy.  This time, it's more invasive so I need to go further to make sure it doesn't come back.  Surgery will be scheduled for some time in December.  I'm afraid, not of the surgery or aftermath, but of not being able to quilt again in the way I did.  I have been very busy trying to get my 11 custom orders done in time.  Here's what I've done since October:

What I made in August 2017

I had to start back to school earlier than usual this year for a summer camp so the last two weeks I was working everyday but I still got a bunch of sewing done.  Here's what I made:

2 T-shirt Quilts

2 Bandana Quilts

1 Hanky Quilt and Pillow

2 Birthday Skirts for my Granddaughter

8 Pocket Pillows.
The last 4 were made from a great grandmas vintage quilt cut into strips .

That's all for August.😀💕
