I'm still here!

I haven't been bloging due to lack of things to talk/write about. I can't stand boring blogs so I'm surely not going to subject you to one of those.

What I've been up too you might ask? Mainly taking it easy. Mom left this afternoon. I'll miss her. I really enjoyed having her here. I'm sure she's eager to get back into her own things. She's been such a great help, which allowed me to concentrate on getting better. I will say that I'm finally starting to feel much better, more me. I'm not at my 100% yet, but I can certainly see the light at the end of the tunnel. My staples are coming out this Wednesday, hurray!

Well, Suzette has given me a heads up regarding the UFO Queen position on Stashbusters. So I've been busy working on my last applique block. Tah...dah..........

I have complete the final block on the hand applique quilt My Favorite Things by Robyn Pandolph - Cabin Fever Designs. The green leaves are much darker in real life and contrast well with the overall design. Photographs can be deceiving!

Tonight I plan on assembling the blocks with the sashing and perhaps even sew on the borders. If I'm feeling really energetic, I may even sandwich the quilt, making it ready to be machine quilted. Yea, right! lol

I haven't decided how I will be machine quilting it as of yet. It will probably be something simple in the blocks and perhaps a designs on the borders.

I'm hoping I can get this quilt done before my name comes up on the UFO Queen list. If not, that's okay. No use stressing about quilting! A fat quarter penalty is not a big deal and I will be happy to oblige.

I do hope you are all having a great weekend. The weather has just been marvelous. DD has been in the pool practically every day of this week.

Have a great weekend!

what a beutiful piece of art you have made! I have been interesting in quilting some time now but since I am in Europe I have troubles getting nice magazines and such on it. I will for sure pop in on you blog once in a while! :-)

I'm happy to hear you're starting to feel so much better! I'm sure you'll miss your mom as you say, but also, don't wear yourself out since she's not there to help you! Conserve your energy for the important stuff--like quilting! LOL!

Your block looks great - don't you just love those Ta-Da moments?

Glad to hear that you're feeling better - just don't overdo it.

What good news - that you are starting to feel better. Hooray! At least this has given you some time to stitch it looks like. This will be a wonderful quilt - I can hardly wait to see the finished product. And I'm with you - a fat quarter penalty for being queen isn't much - helps get rid of the stash! However, I dread having to write the "queen's letter". There have been so many creative ones lately than it will be hard to top them all.

Pleased to hear you are on the way back to your old self.
I bet you're going to miss your mum. I'm sure she was a great help to you.

It's beautiful, Carole. I love that pattern - can't wait to see it all put together! Now, don't push yourself and do too much! Take care and "be well". :-)

Your block looks great - those Pandolph blocks can be a challenge, such teensy, skinny vines *s* Keep your feet up and feel better soon.

Wendy said...

I'm glad to hear you are getting better. Your block is wonderful, love the colours. I'm looking farward to a picture of the whole quilt. Take care, we are thinking of you.
