When I mentioned that this block made me think of coronavirus and how this block may provide historical context to the quilt as well as being uplifting to future quilt viewers, my blog readers convinced me to add my thoughts to the quilt. "If we can get through corona virus, we can get through anything."
It was my last week of work and I don't expect much work from this employer for the rest of 2020. It's been raining and storming at night, which means I have to sleep on the couch to keep Zeus company since he can't make it up and down the steps. Sleeping on the couch and comforting Zeus means my sleep is interrupted and I have aches and pains during the day. I felt sleep-deprived pretty much all week. Plus, it is rainy and dreary during the day, which didn't help with the energy level.
I embroidered this while watching television. I started at the end and did "anything" first. Then I did the line above it, "we can get through". I had to take out stitches and add them back three times before it finally fit. Then I did the first line, which also didn't work out as centered as I planned.
My initial thought was to take out everything, actually plan it and mark it before stitching again, but I think this jumbled crowded mess of letters is appropriate for the coronavirus pandemic. There are too many letters to fit nicely into the block, and planning would have helped us get through it easier, but (I hope), we manage to do it.
Since that is all the progress I made on this quilt, here's another picture to show you another quote.
Today, there are blue skies and magnolia blooms.
