Thanks! I regret that the last one kind of blends into the background a bit too much. In hindsight that solid green might’ve been better for the hummingbirds and the teal could’ve been paired with the pansies. 

That hummingbird fabric is so Suze!




Love them!  Especially the hummingbirds!

my Mama LOVED birds...any kind of birds but she especially liked hummingbird and fat little wrens...I was kind of hoping someone would make some with birds!!

and she liked butterflies too!

I’m glad you approve! The weather here is not favorable so it’ll be a few days until they go into the mail. At least the snow is falling vertically now instead of horizontally LOL

Humming birds are very appropriate for a flower quilt.  One block I made didn't have enough contrast with the border.  I sent it anyway.  I may make a couple more.

This is how a got a cajillion of these little suckers, and remember, those little HST will need to be sewn into blocks, which will need to be sewn into quilts.. 

Our work is never done......(sigh)

I want to thank everyone that has sent blocks and cards and other goodies...I appreciate them all!

My sister and I are working thru my parents estate - its going slowly but its going. Mama had so many accounts in so many places... we have been busily filling out forms for weeks.

I am doing pretty well with my cancer treatments - my M-Spike is down to zero (whoohoo) and the percentage of bad plasma cells in my bone marrow is down to 'roughly 10%' - this is down from 50-60% in November.

I am starting on cycle 6 and will see the Transplant doc in early July to discuss when to schedule the Stem Cell Transplant. That is the 'Big Deal' for the chemo which will likely make me lose my hair (boo...) and will require me to be in strict Social Isolation for around 100 days after.  

I need to work on my quilt soon so I can take it to the hospital when I go. If it does not get done before, it will have to wait until after I am feeling less fatigued from the transplant. Anyone who still wants to send blocks that will go into this quilt, please send soon!


Laura - the gnome blocks are sooooo cute!

Judy - I may be able to integrate the FQ into the quilt...will have to see if I can fussy cut some of those cool motifs..

Linda - I love the little heart! its in my purse.


Again...thank you to everyone!blush

Suze, I was just thinking about you, wondering how you were doing!

wish I was closer to put that quilt together for you!  Do you want to send them to me to get together?

maybe we should talk!
