Love your projects Froggie! Especially the brown quilt. It is super beautiful!

Donna, I have asthma too and I so feel for you. It's awful when you can't breath, just awful!

Ohhhh Mari, I just found fabric for my borders in my stash! I am loving this even more now. My outside border is going to be BLUE! I did notice I need to put some cheddar in my last blocks, I have only one lonely block with it!

Oh wow, Donna, when you get it, you really get it!!! The virus will clear up soon, I hope. And I hope the allergy and asthma meds he gave you help. Yes, we both need some play time.

Here is a pic of the wall hanging quilt I just sent to DD1.

Thank you. I just came from the doctor and he says it is asthma mixed with allergies and a bad virus thrown in just for the fun of it.  I am feeling better, but the asthma will never completely go away, but I can live with it.  Maybe tomorrow on my day off I can play a little bit!

Great little easter baskets, Froggie!

Mari, what a teeny space! You have to be very organized to go that small. I'm in awe!

Donna, sending warm, healing vibes to you. I have COPD so, I'm familiar with breathing problems. They aren't fun, are they?

Oh thanks Lou Ann~ I was very happy with them. She teaches an advanced quilting class, I will look for that. It would be worth it. And she told us some people that have videos on YOu Tube, I watched one, and it was very good.

Good luck at the doc, Donna! I hope you are doing better and can play with us more. Thanks for the birthday wishes, and you are not late, it's on Sunday. I am spreading it out, though. GOod for you, viewer's choice! I am impressed.

I just finished my mug rugs for April, now I need to get a box and send one and the small quilt to DD1. She will be happy to get them. She doesn't know I am sending them to her.

Sorry, I meant to say end of March, not May.

Hi Everyone  I've been down with illness for the past few weeks, but have been following along and reading the posts.  I have it printed out and ready to start, hopefully this weekend. See what the doctor says today at my appt.

Mari- I love your approach to the sewing area.  Keep it simple and fuss free!  Me, I took over my daughters' bedroom several years ago and have managed to bring it under control.  Post pictures later.  As for fabric, that's a different story!

Happy belated birthday, Froggie!  May you have many happy returns with twice as many blessings.

I have been admiring all the quilts and they are all so beautiful!  Congratulations to everyone who entered and won, and BRAVO to those who entered!  I just entered 4 quilts at our guild's show at the end of May just for the fun of it and I thought they were worth showing off.  Well, imagine my surprise when I won First Place Viewer's Choice on one of my quilts.  I had never entered before and didn't think my work was good enough and look at what happened!  That's why I say BRAVO to those of us who do enter.  It takes a lot out of us to do that such as doubt, fear, etc and replaces it with a feeling of Hey, I am good and so is my work! 

Well, I need to get ready for my appt.  Wish me luck, I am having problems with my lungs and asthma.

You are very welcome Vilma! Yeah, I keep it very simple. I'll do it again when I get my new space set up though.
