I'm Back!

Phew!  Glad that week is over!  It is very difficult to go a whole week without doing my favorite things!  You know what I'm talking about.  Sewing, reading, gardening, and basic living!  Surgery went well, and vision is going to be back to normal soon!  Can't wait for that!!

Today was my first day to sew, so.....I finished the rest of the these blocks for my "Susan's Folly" quilt for this month.  I know you have probably seen enough of these, but I really do have to catch up on some sewing before I can show you anything really knew.

Stay tuned!  Happy Quilting Everyone, Everywhere!

Spring Has Sprung

I thought I share my "Joey" roses, that are blooming like crazy in my yard!  This seems to be a very popular color this season.  Can't you imagine a quilt of these colors?

I'm off to have surgery on my eye this morning.  I won't be able to sew, read, or use my computer for the next week, sew....here's a couple of my Susan's Folly blocks I got in the mail this week.  I just had to finish them before today.

Stay tuned!  I'll see you here in a week!

Happy Quilting Everyone, Everywhere!

Barbara Brackman's Block of the Week Grandmother's Choice
I'm so behind on so many of my projects!  I decided I needed to buck up!  Get on with it the best I can!  I finished three of my "Grandmother's Choice" BOW this weekend, and I have a couple more to do to catch up.  This is not a great picture, but here they are for you to see.  I bought that cute little purple fabric a week ago.  A wonderful friend picked me up, and drove me to a couple of local quilt shops.  Great medicine!  I liked it so much that you can see I used in two of the blocks!

If you want to see some wonderful quilts, and get great inspiration, take a peek at Rosemary Young's blog.  She has a smile box from the Dear Jane retreat last week on her site.  No, they are not all DJ's, but there are some awesome quilts to see!   Just click on the link for her blog under Blogs I Follow here to the right. It will take you there.  Enjoy!

Happy Quilting Everyone, Everywhere :-)

One Eyed Quilting

Look at these cute little blocks!  This is month five of "Susan's Folly's" BOM.  I've showed you several other completed months in the past.   I'm still healing, but I just had to try some sewing, or go completely crazy!  I don't think these are too bad for a one-eyed job. 

Sure have a lot of catching up to do on my "Grandmother's Choice" blocks.  I've got at least four weeks waiting to be done, along with lots of other projects! Stars, little 2-1/2" squares for that plus sign quilt, and on, and on!!  Oh well, someday it will all get done!  Stay tuned to find out what I might work on next.
