A fun, fun day!!

 I had the most fun ever playing in the scraps this morning!!  I made a basket...kinda wonky at best...then added strings around it.  TADA!!  A block that is totally scrappy, not a bit well pieced...and I love it!!
 Another one, just playing here...I don't like this one as much, but hey...fun anyway!!
 Bonnie Hunter!!  of Quiltville fame...she started this, LOL!  These are blocks that are to be made as leader/enders...you don't really think I can do that, do you?  I made one, just to see how it would go.  Addicting, that is how it went!!
 So I cut out a whole quilt!!  That is the fun part of cutting up your scraps into usable pieces...all this came from the 2.5 inch strips and squares bin.  ANYTHING goes!!
My friend Lyn...oh Lyn!  She sent me a birthday  package in July, with instructions to open an item whenever I needed or wanted to!!  Wow!!  Spoiled, that is what I am....and love this amazing gift!!  Thank you, Lyn!!  Everything has a Parisian theme.  So much fun!  Lots of work and imagination went into this...


***************************Nurse's Notes************************


Well, the lady from last post is off to rehab.  So hurrah for her!!  It is hard sometimes, because we as nurses sometimes never know what happens to patients.  We love for them to come back and visit when they are all well!!

I recently admitted a patient with chest pain.  He was totally wheelchair bound, late 60's, but he still cared for his 91 year old mother at home.  He said the only thing he could not do was to bath her, and he had home health come in and help with that.  He received a call from his mom while I was doing the admission paperwork, and it was so obvious that he loved her so very  much...and it just warmed my heart.  There is so much good, and so many good people in our world.  I love running into them!!!

Have a great day, everyone!!

Sweet birthday package. Aren't friends grand?
I love your Nurse's Notes. Great story!

Leeanne said...

Oh I love the first block too!
I am listening to a talking book about a nurse/midwife that has moved from LA to a remote forest town, very interesting, but I think of you!

Love the scrappy blocks and look forward to seeing the creative way(s) you will use them in a quilt.

I love scrappy quilts. I can never get organised enough to cut up my scrap bin into useable pieces though!
