Catherine Whall Smith . . . is indeed back in her studio.

Yes, I am back in my studio working on my “Transfusion” series;  #3 a fairly large piece (43H x 73W) has been taken off my design wall (see below) and after basting the 3 layers (top/batting/back) together I will start hand quilting it today.
