I've been participating in Australian Helen Goddin's online free motion tutorials. It's called Flower Power and is free for everyone. This tulip is the first of nine flowers. Colored with Inktense pencils. I bought a new free motion foot last week and I'm getting used to it. I don't think my stitching is as good as it was. It may be a tension problem with my machine. 

A new little quilt for my sewing room door. I've wanted to make this simple pattern for quite a while. I added the little curtain from an old piece of lace. Happy cat isolating. 

My dear daughter baked me a delicious cake for my birthday in April. Lemon cake from scratch with raspberry jam filling. Homemade buttercream frosting. She also made a scrumptious stir fry for dinner. My dear husband gave me a gorgeous bouquet. Dear son called from Virginia. A wonderful day. 

I made a blue kaleidoscope quilt with some beautiful fat quarters I bought some time ago. The top is about 50 x 60. I don't have quilt batting or a good backing to complete the quilt just now. 

And I've been making masks, just as many of you have done. I spent a lot of time working on a good fitting mask. I tried another style but this style was mostly what I made. 

Stay safe and stay home! I made a foray to a local greenhouse yesterday, but other than that, I really have just been home. Not getting too squirrely yet, but there is a full moon tomorrow and it is making me somewhat tense. We all have to cope with the isolation in our own ways, but let me say that I believe we are doing the right thing by staying home and flattening the curve, a phrase we are all now familiar with. Take care everyone!
