I've made my feathers from string scraps.
I'm big stitching on Feather Bed in different colors of perle #8.
I'm not sure what or how I will quilt between feathers. (These look a little wonky and wavy propped up on the back of the couch or maybe it's the dizzying effect of so many feathers).
I'm preparing a lot of handwork for my husband's upcoming mandibulectomy and fibula free flap surgery on Thursday an hour away in Iowa City to repair a jaw fracture caused by osteoradionecrosis - lots of radiation when he had oropharyngeal cancer. It's a 12 hour surgery and then a 7-10 day hospital stay - one day at least in ICU. I'll stay at the hospital during the day and go back to a hotel at night for the first few days, be back at work on Monday and then go back to pick him up on the day he is discharged. So I'll need a lot of hand work to keep me busy!
