Thank you all so much for the kind words about my work decision. I know that it's not the last dilemma I'll face, so it's great to have support from people who know where I'm coming from.
I've made great progress on Cora's quilt lately. The quilting and binding are done! The last step is a bit of embroidery to personalize it. I'll post complete photos soon.
Wendy's post about the cute earrings she bought recently reminded me to share a recent earring purchase of my own. I first bought these earrings a couple years ago from Kathryn Riechert, who had the table behind mine at mutation craft fair in Savannah. I wore them almost everyday, but then, a few months ago, they disappeared. I looked everywhere (losing things makes me sort of manic). So I finally sucked it up and ordered another pair, and they arrived this week. I have several more of her pieces, and I love them all.
