I’m not going to say, hey I’m back, because that seems to mean I’ll be here every week. I am going to post more, but can’t say how frequently because my neighbor, who after 19 years became a part of our family is quite ill. For the last few months we’ve been helping her. She was finally ( after 6 trips to the ER) was diagnosed with cancer that had metastasized and is an extremely fast growing cancer. In a short time she’s gone from walking to bedridden and on care and comfort. We all know how painful and difficult it is to stand by helplessly while we are losing someone. Anyway, I’ll be back and forth trying to deal with that and trying to busy my free time with things that keep my mind occupied. I have my quilting that I’ve been away from for such a long time, that I am pulling out and diving into. I also have my Succulants that never cease to amaze me with their beauty and individuality. They’re all so beautiful 😊
My dear friend Susan helped me get back on my blog, it had turned into a challenge. Lol. I thought I would try and brighten up my face page and managed to botch it up and had a terrible time getting things back to normal. Actually I didn’t get it back to normal, Susan did. 🤪. Thank you so much Susan.
I’m going to get off here for tonight and try to be back soon with some brighter news. HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone, be safe and God Bless.
I forgot to add a couple of pictures, so thanks for the reminder Susan😁
I got started last week cutting out more Churn Dash blocks, then got back to it last night. I finished the last two this morning and hope to start sewing this afternoon.
A couple of days ago I got the last set sewn up. Yay, I’m ahead of the game for a change. I was able to pin the binding on the red/pink quilt that’s been waiting for a while too. Lol
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I belong to a small group of ladies that Swap Churn Dash blocks every month. Depending on how many are in the group at a time, tells us how often we mail. For example, if there are 3 people in the group, then I make three different blocks for three people, one each for the other two member and one for myself. This woul be 3 months worth of blocks. i was going to try and explain the process ( it’s really quite simple) but it would be lengthy. I’ll try and do that later, I’m a little foggy headed this morning, (and usually am, but that sounded good. Lol) Anyway, I received three blocks from each lady this month, and next month I send three blocks to the next person. This covers a three month period for each person, so we mail to one person monthly, rather than to each individual every month. That name changes every 4 the month. Ie: I receive Jan, May and Sept.
The point of all this is I’m finally able to sit at the mochine and sew. Yaaaaay!! I’ve had a lot of physical problems the last few years, so I’ve been away from my machine for quite a while. Anyway, I got my Churn Dash blocks sewn for next month and ready to go. I’m trying to post a Pic of them, but not having much luck. I guess I can do that later, when I figure out what I’m doing wrong. Lol
My granddaughter Samantha started a sewing class in high school a couple of weeks ago and this is her frist finished project. A pillowcase. She did a great job on, the hem and everything are near perfect. Yaaaaay! Maybe a quilter in the future:)
Just had to share the adorable pincushion my sister made for me and Karrin Hurd. DH and I went over there the other day, him to do some fishing and me to do some sewing. She’s always got some neat thing going and it was such a nice surprise to receive this. I’ll take Karrin hers this week.
