I passed! I passed! I now can call myself a CCRN (certified Critical care)....and stop all the studying that is hampering my housecleaning and quilting and other fun stuff....YAHOO!! The test was yesterday...I really have been studying like crazy, and still, there were some questions...I had never even heard of! They had a brain surgery question on there that I had no clue...good thing I don't work with those patients, huh? I did get 100% on the cardiac questions...Now I will have time to see what you all have been up to!!!
Above is my Two And One Half Inch Drawer Quilt. All of this came from that drawer...hence the name. I am going to put another border on it of squares...and that should polish off that drawer! So, I feel good about that.
Joyce! In Arizona! Joyce has no blog, but she should...she is an amazing quilter and needs to share her quilts with the world! She is teasing me and tempting me to start another quilt...look at what she sent! What a great idea for the 5 inch squares our local hospital quilters recently swapped...thank you so much, Joyce, I love your idea!!
Dear Jane....you and I are a bit slow this week...but slow progress will be our norm, I am sure. Thank you Jane for all these original and gorgeous blocks...I am having great fun making them. I can hold out for about 3 a day...then I just have to something a little less intricate. Like nine patches....see above. Jane, I think you may have been a seamstress, maybe, to have collected all those fabrics...I am about running out of brown options! I must confess, I love it when the next block up is pink...or red, as seen in your original quilt.
************************WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN A SWAP?******************
I have in the back of my mind...a nine patch swap! Not that it has not been done before...but I am just thinking what fun it would be to have a different nine patch from a few...or loads of you wonderful blog friends! Would you be interested in this? You would make all your nine patches alike...send them to me...and I will sort, package up, and send each person participating two of each! You would get 100 nine patches back...just different ones, in all different fabrics. Variety!! So, if we had 50 bloggers doing this, then we each would make 100 nine patches. We could strip piece them and get this done fairly quickly... Does that sound OK?? I will send out information in the coming week or two about doing this...any size preferable? I would like reproduction fabrics....interested???
Have a wonderful week!
Julie, RN, CCRN
