 Overflowing with doll quilts for Get Your Mrs. Claus On, that is.   And that is a very good thing.  

  I discovered a few more photos that I had not uploaded.  It was raining the week these I just scattered them in the entry way.    These are from the group at HGTV Board.  Hand tied, machine quilted, appliqued, strip pieced, cheater panels, and a few whole cloth quilts.....such a wonderful assortment.  I don't know how to describe how precious these are.
    You see, it is day 61 of the shoulder event, and I had just been lamenting about this project, and trying to figure out how to finish up the rest that would be needed.  My sewing time is limited to about 30 to 45 minutes....after that the muscles required in the left arm turn to jelly and refuse to work.   Although I am healing and improving,  the muscle strength and stamina has a long way to go.
  And then, I get an email from Nicki about a huge, huge assortment of doll quilts she just received.  That is why I describe this post as "overflowing".....I know that we will have enough doll quilts this year.
 Yes, there is a Mrs. Claus, this year and  next year too, I hope.  Thank you so much, each  and every Mrs. Claus, for all your help and hard work.  I send hugs to all of you.
  I do have a request.....I think we need a better logo or design for this project.  Does anyone have the time or talent for creating a simple logo for Get Your Mrs. Claus On?   Please let me know, I would so appreciate it.  
  OK,  I need to let those elves, and the Pesky Elf  especially, know about this bounty.  They have a lot of work to do to keep up with the quilting Mrs. Claus group.  Happy stitching.

I am so happy to see these latest photos of quilts and hear that you are continuing to improve. We also have been blessed with some rain this week. Good news all around!

I think you can retire your sewing machine from making doll quilts this year. I know you are going to have enough to fill the woodworkers request this year. This project has been a blessing to all who are participating. It's time to put our thinking caps on for a good, simple logo.

One day at a time with progress on your arm. You are doing great with obeying Dr.'s orders & keeping up with your exercises & PT. Keeep it up & before long you will be as good (or better) as new.

I've been blessed by your kind heart & gentle spirit.
