Celebrate, Celebrate, dance to the music!!

Hi Friends!! Have you ever...well, often, had some moments of just pure happiness? Well, that is where I am right now...a rare moment of peace, tranquility and satisfaction. Why? Because I finished all the frog-stitching on the hour glass/nine patch friendship quilt! Yippee! And I finished my ACLS class this morning (a required advanced life support class for nurses), and got 100% on my test. AND...above! I got home this afternoon and put together the latest string thing! I just love it, love it. I learned that muddy and clear colors look best...not together. I picked ,as well as I could, only clear bright colors from the string bin for this quilt. It just makes me happy to see it...I feel like I have been given a gift!! By the way, I still have a huge bin of strings. Just goes to show you, the strings make wild whoopy in the string box!! and multiply!
I made a mistake in the layout...and am going to leave it. I like it.

Thanks for listening to my blather...

By the way, the Gypsy girl has gone home, fixed up just fine...and is doing well.

Love the string quilt...I won't tell anyone you have a block that has a mind of it's own and does not want to play properly with the other blocks.

Congrats on the 100%...aren't you glad this is behind you?

Have a great weekend.

Gorgeous! I like clear brights, too!

Congrats on passing the ACLS! That test always stresses me out.

Oh yes - occasionally everything comes together! You deserve major congrats on your test, and this quilt is indeed happy, cheerful - what a difference the sashing makes on a pattern we've seen a lot of. You're right, keep the muddy colors away - this is a peachy quilt! I'm going to re-look, based on what Ameila (above) says! ???

Your quilt is perfect, Julie! :) Your entrance Halloween decorations are adorable, girl, and I love, love, love that runner you have on the table---can you post a picture of it and let me know what pattern you used? :) I also love the flying geese on your embroidery quilt! Perfect!

Woohoo...great job on the test and the string quilt. (It took me three minutes of hard looking to find the free-spirited block - no worries!)
