Oh Gracia, what a beautiful quilt!  It looks so complicated with the lovely applique and all those little squares.  I am so intimidated to try making a quilt like yours.

further to my post yesterday,  I figured how to add the picture.

Hubby thinks this is silly, but I made this quilt for Lucy, my son-in-law's dog.  It is backed with black fleece so it is very soft.  My younger son is on his way on Canada Day to visit his sister in B.C. so he will deliver it.

Want to send some encouraging words to Phyllis and Elizabeth's son, but none come to mind.  Hope they can both take heart from Gracia - and Gracia, happy to hear you had such a great outcome!

On a little lighter note - Canada Day coming up, and it just happens to be my dad's 90th birthday, so we're doing a party!  About 90 people coming to celebrate with us.  Because of that quilting has been set aside for the last while as we get ready.  Wishing you all a wonderful Canada Day in this our 150th year as a country!

Hello everyone.  It has been a long time since I posted.  We don't have the Internet a time home anymore.  Too expensive.  When I hit the library it is usually run in and do what I have to do.  A lot of stuff happening on the site.  Phyllis, i am so sorry to hear of your diagnosis.  I was diagnosed 9 yrs ago.   It hits you out of left field.  You do not feel sick, however, unfortunately, you will get sick.   My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.  I have to figure out how to add picture.

On another note.  I have been quilting and sewing.  This is my latest.  It was a wedding gift for our neice on June 10.  I have another one on the go, for our son and his bride for Aug 12.

Phyllis I am very sorry to hear this. Sending you prayers and healing hugs.

We will know when you are getting better when you tell us that you are working on a quilt project, Phyllis.

There are so many hurting people out there that I feel almost bad mentioning my diagnosis, because in the overall scheme of things, it is really very minor.  Yes, I may have a rough year ahead of me, but the outlook is very good. 

I am so happy that your daughter has had a good outcome to her treatment, Lynda, and Elizabeth, as I remember your son, I will pray for him.

Hi Linda, So glad to hear that your daughter has recovered.

My son had his fourth brain operation in April.  He is very depressed - the side effects of surgery are very difficult for him to bear.

So sorry to hear that you have breast cancer, Phyllis.  Wishing you a successful round of treatment.  You are in my thoughts and I'm sending you virtual hugs ((())) !
