My illness

As we all know, I have a crafting illness. It is hereditary and comes from my mother, though I'm not sure from whom she inherited it. As we all know, I've been making quilts, though I still have 3 unfinished "block of the month" quilts. I've decided that I'm allowed to look at a new sewing machine when I have completed 10 quilt tops. I am currently at 8. I may include photos of my latest two quilts, as well as the four jelly roll skirts I recently made. To pass the February doldrums, Ma and I have signed up for a flower arranging class taught by the local high school agriculture sterling scholar. I wish they had flower arranging when I was in high school! Anyway, I'm posting photos of what we've made. The wreath was made 2 days ago, and thus is sad looking. The flower arrangement with the white & red ribbon hanging down is mine and the other is Ma's. I hope that you all are surviving the winter.
