love it handstitcher. Even if you don't finish it right away, it would make a great spring cover for a bed.

handstitcher, you did a fabulous job with rescuing those poor butterflies.
We have been having lots of rain here in Mid-MO and the temps finally feel more like fall. That is okay with me as that is when I feel more like quilting.

Update: first snow melted within 2 days, then came the winds from the West and dried the leaves and now we're expecting more snow with a grey sky.  So, appliqueing the last border bits on my Dear Jane today.  This quilt top has been sitting in my cabinet for far too long (2006).  It's time I finished it up.  Have a great day wherever you are.

I finished my butterfly top a few weeks ago. It's not needleturn applique, but raw edge with a buttonhole stitch. I bought the 9 blocks at a flea market. The butterfly wings and about 1/3 of the bodies were done. I finished the bodies, embroidered the antennae, and set the blocks together. It will be awhile before it gets quilted. It's pretty far down the waiting list.

Stay safe Annette. We have been having beautiful weather here in Mid-Missouri. Larry & I went to MI this weekend so I could award 4 Quilts of Valor quilts to members of my family. It was chilly there, but no snow.

And this morning, snow!!  Thankfully we went out for a drive Saturday just to admire the Fall colours, then wham!  This morning I awoke to a significant snowstorm.  Already about an inch on our patio table.  Good thing today I have some applique prep to do.  I'll go downstairs and ignore this weather.

Good question, Annette! I've been wondering the same thing. I thought of you last week when my town in northern IL was very hazy and we could smell smoke. It was due to forest fires in western Canada. We had to keep the kids at school inside due to asthma concerns. Made me wonder how it was up by you.

Is everyone here safe from the hurricanes?  Concerned.  What a wild year!!  Forest fires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes.  Yikes!

Thanks handstitcher. I went for my followup today and things are progressing nicely. My problem is, now that I'm feeling better, I'll probably do more than I should. I'm really trying to be good! :)

Cat Lady, I hope your husband gets better soon. I did the same thing when Randy went for 2 cardiac ablasions this spring/summer. Good thing I had more to do than sit with my phone!

Sorry to hear about your need for surgery, Quilt Dragon. Hope you recover quickly. Glad you have appliqué to help pass the time.

And I hope your husband feels better soon, Cat Lady. Good idea to have appliqué prepped for the possibility of surgery. It does make the time go faster. I like Mimi Dietrich's designs as well and have one of her books (Baltimore Bouquets) that I've used a lot.
