Hopefully Other Daughter can get her life in order one of these days. Your solution to leave Lily Aurora in your basement is a wise one!
I have the sad feeling that it is going to be another grim "Dear Abby" story coming down the pike. She's fifty years old and you'd think she would have learned some common sense by now ....
learned some common sense by now
I've noticed a tendancy about people, they seem to make similar mistakes over and over, especially with regard to relationships.

You are SOOO right!
I'm just heartsick about Other Daughter because I see the same "stars in her eyes" that I saw eighteen years ago when she came bouncing into my house to tell me she was (1) pregnant and (2) going to marry the kid she had had a crush on in high school who was father of baby and (3) all this while her mom was dying of pancreatic cancer.
That "kid" (the father of her neurotic son) was a drunk in high school and is still a drunk who is supported by his mother.
I won't bore you with any more details because this is not a soap opera website but rest assured I will not be sending Lily Aurora to live with Other Daughter for some time.
I might give up and sell the machine.
In the meantime I am following instructions in the Scrappy Improv Quilting book (by Kelly Young) and cutting my bright colorful scraps into "bits", "pieces" and "strips" and putting them into small shallow baskets for future use. I can see myself making at least three smalllish quilts from this book and possibly more. The author sure is a clever woman. I am emptying out my collection of bright batiks that I had used for years in making all of those color wheels.
I like the ideas in her paperbound book so much that I took the book to Office Depot and had the clerk cut off the spine, punch holes in the book and insert a spiral coil so that the book now lies flat on the table. Best $5 you can spend on a quilt project when you are going to use nothing but scraps; this flat book will be so much easier to use when I am studying the various ideas in it.
Beautiful, Ami. I knew it would be after seeing those first blocks at the retreat. I'm sure your quilting will only enhance it's beauty.
Your Inner Block quilt will be a beauty. I hope you don't wait forever to actually quilt it.
I did that with all my paper piecing books. Easier to copy the patterns if they will lay flat.
