Thanks for the well wishes. We are just back from my husband's uncle's funeral.  Boy you realize just how old you are when the people there you remember as children now have gray hair and adult children.   Time marches on, and on and on.  But enjoyed meeting up with family we have not seen in a long time...… why is it we all said that we don't see each other until someone dies.

The baby quilt is adorable Sherri.  I wish you much success on your journey to better health.  My husband & I both need to lose weight.  I never in my entire life ever thought my husband or I would be overweight, but it sure creeps up on a person if they are not careful.

that turned out great Sherri! And congratulations on successfully taking your health and welfare into your own hands. Nothing worthwhile comes easy! You are so lucky that your hubby is on your journey with you. That makes it so much easier, and he will be healthier in the long run for doing it with you.

Can't wait to see what else you get accomplished

Sorry to hear about your Heart attack Sherri and happy that you're feeling so much better.  The quilts are beautiful.  One day at a time my friend and you'll be surprised at the amount of stuff you get done a little at a time.  Your health is important so do as you are doing and for sure you'll have success.  Have a super day.

Finished this baby quilt this week.  As well as another scrappy table runner.  I had planned to spend this past week working on finished up as many UFOs as I could.  I only managed to finish two.  But you can see the next project peeking out from under the baby quilt.  I am finding I have less time to spend in my sewing room.  Since I was released from the hospital a month ago after my 3rd heart attack, my DH and I embarked on a new eating plan.   We are now following a plant based diet.  And even though I am feeling good, have more energy even considering I am still recovering,  the time involved in eating this way is huge.  Between shopping, storing , preparing and then storing leftovers,  I spend a lot of time in the kitchen now.   But the results have been remarkable, my diabetes labs are better than they have every been, and I have lost around 10 lbs since leaving the hospital a month ago.  This is a very strict diet, and I have to be diligent, because of my condition.  MY spouse has lost 13 lbs,  why do men always lose more than women, even though they cheat, which he has.   But only in small ways with things like yogurt, and peanuts.   I am not allowed even vegetable oils.   I can tell you it was a traumatic day for me when I threw away my butter.  But the effort has been worth the result.  I feel more energetic, even though I am not fully recovered.

I agree Diane.  Nice blocks Sherri.

Bonnie Hunter is a dangerous person!

I have gotten so into this scrappy thing,  that I cannot help myself.  With numerous unfinished project  ( or as I like to say projects in process)  I should not be piecing new blocks. But Bonnie HUnter's diamond tile drew me in, and it is such fun to make that I started these yesterday.  I don't think I will make enough for a bed size quilt .. maybe a lap or baby. But I really like this block.

I was commissioned to make a wallhanging out of men's ties for a woman whose dad passed away in April just shy of his 93rd birthday.  I had never used ties before so there was definitely a learning curve, but I'm pleased with how it turned out.  I used a total of 20 ties.

Sherri, I have been working on a number of rainbow palettes lately, and the one color I always seem to be shy on is in the purple family.
