Cut Off From Reality

 Time to keep finish up posting last year's project!  Back to it with number 42 in the weekly six-word memoir quiltlets.
The words say: "Cut Off From Reality.  Busy Healing"
Oh the joys of heavy-duty painkillers, necessary of course to healing, but not the way I want to experience the rest of my life thankyouverymuch.

The overlay is from the wrapping that some get-well flowers arrived in.  See I use everything around here eventually!  This material feels a little like Lutradur, very lightweight, maybe spun woven.   I liked how the subtle pattern looked over the top of the quiltlet.  Gave it that "removed from reality" look that I was trying to express.

Julie, I would have guessed that the overlay was a soft organdy....not flower wrappings!
I was just trying to get a blog post written for later about my overwhelming junk piles, saving everything.
Now I don't feel so bad! :-)
You made my day with your cool little quiltlet and it's story!!!

I love the recycling of materials that you do. I can't wait to see what you do with materials for the Remains of the Day journal.

I am glad you are still posting this project. Did you get to 52?
