For those who would be interested in making this top as a "challenge"- to keep each other encouraged, it would be fun to see our progress and do a "show 'n tell" as we go along. It will be easier to…Continue

Hello all. Happy to report I have fixed the 20 blocks that I put together wrong. It was not too bad after all. I am still plugging away. I have about 15 blocks to do for the center. I will get that together before I worry about the border. Hopefully I can get it together without turning anything upside down. More good news. Loveland quilt shop had a cancellation and I was able to get in and got two quilt tops quilted today. I will post pictures once I get the borders on. One is a quilt I did about five years ago. My goal for the summer is to get all quilt tops quilted.

Linda, I totally get being stuck at home. For at least the last six months I have been house bound because of my immune system being so compromised.  I am still somewhat limited with what I can do, but I appreciate every time I can get out, even if it just to go to Kroger's ( at 7 AM when there is not a lot of people). Hang in there.

The gremlins sent me an email regarding the birthday group yesterday and it took me to a posting from early last year. I was thinking that I hadn't seen anything about a birthday group for this year. I  have transportation issues and rarely get out anymore. I hate being stuck at home all the time. Grrrrr!

Hope you are healing well Sherri and Sheila. Sheila you must quit running into doors! Now that the weather is getting better, we should plan another sewing weekend.

I think Sheila is right the Gremlins are meddling.  I had trouble getting a comment to post earlier today as well.

That must be an old post, Sherri.  Don't believe we are doing the exchange this year!  I've had that happen before.  Looks like there is a new post but it takes me back 100 pages to something from a couple years ago!

I must have been reading an old post about someone  receiving some red FQ's.  A break would be good from the FQ birthday exchange.  Sheila hope you heal quickly.  I am working on that myself.  Still have a couple of weeks before I see my Ohio ortho doc. But hoping for good news. spring is calling me and I am  in no shape right now to be working outside in the yard.

Okaaaaaaay...I see the gremlins are still around. Tried to post something and it all tanked.

Sorry I haven't been around. Still battling the November crud - just does not want to die. Plus, it doesn't help that Bailey tripped me up and I slammed my nose into the door frame. No blood but, it's a bit crooked and I can tell it. Back to the ENT to see if he can fix it...again...

Still working, working, working. Got the Splendid Sampler almost done. A few more blocks to do on both versions and then I can piece the top together. Now I'm working on the Solstice Challenge. It'll be an asymmetrical (sp) setting with different size blocks. We're getting a new bed tomorrow (KING!) so, I'm going to have to make something to fit that - gee, such a chore that will be.

Hi Sherri, you didn't miss anything..I think everyone was so busy battling the bad weather, they just forgot....that is ok by me...I too, am ready for a rest!..taking care of John has really worn me out...but I will be ready by January;;;)
Comment by Sherri Eley on April 18, 2017 at 1:24pm

I must have missed the 2017 FQ birthday exchange.  I guess too many hospital stays got in the way... So look forward to jumping in again next year.

Things get a little better everyday.  I am still hampered by this darn boot. But am able to maneuver fairly well.  Have been able to spend a little time in the sewing room the past couple of days.  NOt too long because I can't keep that leg down too long.  But I am chipping away at the En Provence Mystery.  I just have the final border to add and it should be ready for the longarm.  So Brenda I will be calling you. But probably not until I am out of this boot and able to walk on my own.  Sometime in late May I am hoping.
