Georgia's Perseverance

A new blog for me as my old blog AllMyScatteringMoments is full. This is my second change although I will not be deleting my blog so you can always still look back. I also have not deleted my first blog NeedleNecessities.

Back in May, I discovered that Cheri was having a doll QAL once again. I have made another of her designs but have to get it quilted but could not resist this one. When can I ever resist a doll quilt??? *grins*

I jumped in with both feet while I was having a hard time using my right hand. If you remember, I explained that there is a problem with the blood going into my hand. The doctor thought I had Raynaud's disease. I have been through a great deal of testing at the hospital which will continue again in July as it seems there is more on the hand (no pun intended) than the doctor thought. I am seeing a specialist who is having to play Dr. House at the moment. Is this important you ask? Yes as it has everything to do with a little change I made in the name of my quilt.


Here is Georgia's Perseverance. I added the word perseverance as that is exactly what I did while making it. I went right into quilting it as I wanted to prove to myself that my hand is going to be okay even if it means I have to stitch a little slower. And I am so pleased with my latest addition to my doll's armoire!


per·se·ver·ance/ˌpərsəˈvi(ə)rəns/

Noun:
  1. Steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.
  2. Continuance in a state of grace leading finally to a state of glory.



For the moment, I am keeping the quilt out on the dining room table as I thought it colored so nicely with my cherry pinkeep. Since cherry season is among us, I wanted to celebrate it.


Do you celebrate a season with something stitched or quilted?

  4. The quilt is beautiful.

    I used to hang a beautiful handmade quilt of the Nativity at Christmas but our daughter, Denise, loved it, so I gave it to her. Now she hangs it in her home.

  5. The quilt is lovely Heidi and I'm ready to do some stitching myself. I took my exam today for the course I am studying - it's been a long old haul this last 10 months but now I hope to get my life back and do catch up with all my favourite things. Thanks for your lovely comments on my last post. Like the name of your new blog by the way.

  6. Good luck with your new blog Heidi. I love the name. I'm glad you are keeping the old blogs as they really are full of memories.
    I'm so sorry your hand is bad but, knowing you as I do I 'm not at all surprised that Perseverance features in the name you chose for your little quilt. It's very beautiful and dainty. The quilting design is lovely.
    I definitely celebrate Halloween and Christmas with stitchy things and wish I spent more time creating seasonal displays too. I am always in awe of yours and promise myself I'll do more but I never seem to get round to it....sigh :-)

  9. Love the doll quilt, you've used such pretty fabrics. I have stitched pinkeeps and bowl fillers for autumn and winter but for some reason I've never made any for spring and summer. I really must do some more cross-stitch, I've several small things that I want to do. All I need is to make a start!

Well done my friend...especially with all the health issues you have to handle! I am so proud of you!!!! I also love the name of your new blog...I feel that everytime I stitch something there is always a special memory that goes along with it...at least for me. Take care my friend and here is a special hug from CA.

  17. Lovely little quilt Heidi. I'm trying to get more seasonal in my decoration, it is becoming more common here, when I was younger people only really decorated for Christmas.

  18. I love the little quilt. I celebrate every season with decorations - in fact, I change things around about once a month. I have too many nice things and not enough space.

  21. Heidi, you nailed it with the definition of perseverance. Take care of yourself! The quilt is adorable and really looks great finished. I used to decorate for every occasion I could come up with but I quit a few years ago because it seemed to be more trouble than anything. Now, I regret not decorating.
