Gift fabric and a block

  I have been so up and down this summer.......and right now I am up, up up!  I saw the doctor yesterday and the 5 days of  shots of B-12 have helped for sure.  And my D3 has improved a lot.  This morning I felt so much better and even went to the Fresh Market with Sir Old Man.  Thank you all for the prayers and thoughts and extra encouragement.  We hope I have turned the corner.


Schedule  A little encouragement goes a long way for me.  A packet of fabric arrived in the mail from  Cheree of the Morning Latte.   She was passing along a won bundle that she thought suited me a lot.  Lol....State Birds fabrics with lots of floral backgrounds....yep, more my style than hers.  I will turn a few of these into circles and use part for the border on the small circle wall hanging.  Thank you, Cheree for giving me a push and some motivation to return to the sewing room.   Bloggers and quilting friends are the best!


I did say sewing room......after reading Bonnie Hunter's post on her Pineapple Blossom workshop, I decided to make a test block.   I cut some lengths according to her directions----found here---from 2'' scraps and found enough 3 1/2'' squares.  Tada.....I can still follow directions.


  I also did the bonus triangles and set them aside to accumulate into something.  
I have boxes of floral strips that will probably work for this.  I just need to cut some corner squares.   I had a very nice, enjoyable afternoon.  And I was stitching.  Thanks everyone for the encouragement.
Happy stitching.

  12. Yea! So happy to hear that those injections are doing what needed to be done in order to bring some happiness and well being back into your life. Sewing is cathartic, therapeutic, creative, passion and all things that make us happy. Hugs and prayers.

  13. So good to hear the happiness in your "voice". Glad you are back in the sewing mode. I did a lap size Pineapple Blossom quilt for a little girl who lost her home in a fire. I had trouble keeping the blocks square no matter how careful I was, but it came out looking good anyway.
