Fun Day!!!!!

Had a great day yesterday! Sewing with my buddy, Regina! We did 10 minute blocks...... they are so much fun and easy to do! Regina finished her quilt top up and I made a quilt top for my grandson in one day! I had cut most of my blocks the night before. They go together so fast and make a great looking quilt! I will use this pattern again and again!

It was a great feeling to get something done! Now what to do today? Hmmmmm........need to go shopping for Mother's Day, but would love to quilt my grandson's quilt! Although, my son is getting very impatient for his quilt that I should have had done a long time ago!!!!!!!!!

Hope everyone has a marvelous day!

Where has the time gone??????

Hello Quilters!
Just wanted to say that I am still here! Not much quilting done! How does life get so crazy? Just an update for all......since I last posted, I have a beautiful grandson, born January 27th! He was 4 weeks early and we almost lost my daughter. Life has been a roller coaster, but I am happy to report that she is doing some better. Among the huge list of complications, she has pancreatitis and is still struggling with that. She is finally able to be home and taking care of her wonderful boy. She is on tube feed and just found out today that the pancreas is still inflamed. So probably several more weeks of tube feed ahead of her. We did bring her here for two weeks the end of March to help her with everything. She lives in Kentucky and we have made six trips back and forth between Michigan and Kentucky since the end of January. With gas prices so high, we have not been able to go back. Miss them all so much, and miss cuddling with my lovely grandson! Have had some health issues since myself, but things are looking up and I am hoping to get back to my quilting soon.

My best friend and wonderful support, Regina has been here for me. Aren't best friends great! We just spent a wonderful weekend on a quilt shop hop. It was great and we picked up some wonderful project ideas (along with some projects, but shhh.....don't tell)! So we will be sewing together this week working on UFO's and maybe some new things!

So keep watching for progress and pictures! I am back at it and back to posting! You have not heard the last from me!!!!!!! SMILE

Keep on sewing and posting! I am enjoying everyone's blogs!

Happy Quilting!
