The needle on the sewing machine has been humming away and my needles have been busy.
I finally finish - finished my Neighborhood RR from 2007-2009. I found this gorgeous fabric in a local quilt shop and it seemed to fit just right.
I worked 4 days on my personal exchange for May. Sorry, no photos.
I have worked away on my HAED for my second 4 day slot. Let me tell you, I am pretty tired of all this blue. How much more sky could there possibly be. I thought I'd better include a before photo otherwise you wouldn't think I had done anything.
There was a wonderful quilt show here in Yuma last weekend and I loved looking at all the beautiful quilts and doing a little shopping at the vendors. Tucked away in a corner was a box with a label that said "Cross Stitch patterns and magazine for 25 cents". I think I bought 80 percent of the box - maybe 90 LOL. I love looking at old cross stitch magazines. I am also trying to accumulate a southern stash so I don't carry so many patterns back and forth -sounds reasonable doesn't it. Look at all these treasures.
I have made some progress on my mystery quilt. I still don't know where I'm going with this but love the colors and the blocks so far.
I saw this little dog at a friend's house this fall and loved it. I had no pattern but I had a photograph that I took.
With graph paper and some experimenting this is what I came up with. Isn't he just the sweetest little fella!
I have had a couple of inquiries about my son. He is doing fine. He says he's feeling great. He is working, playing pick up hockey on weekends and spending time with his wife and daughter. His surgery is scheduled for March 9th and we will be flying home for 10 days at that time.
Also, Leo's back is fine now. He is back to his usual funny and sometimes annoying self LOL.
I read this on someone's blog this week and I loved it. I think it might become my new saying
Be the kind of woman that each morning when your feet hit the floor the devil says "Oh, crap, she's up!"
And I think that says it all!
