Here is where I am on the flying goose quilt. I think these geese are lost...going every which-a-way! I have about twice as many blocks cut out and ready to sew...and it will be a colorful, scrappy quilt for a patient, one day!
I have been sorting my strings from the laundry basket into shoe boxes. Here are my nursing clogs...so you know what size these little shoe boxes are. The boxes were on sale at Home Depot, so I bought a box full of them.
And here are my strings, sorted by color, as best that I could, into the shoe boxes. Rosie Posie the poodle helped a lot by wallowing and playing in the pile of strings that I was sorting, and gleefully getting a string or two in her mouth and running and prancing into the other room with them!! I love that baby doggie!! And I just love strings...love piecing with them and going through the boxes to pick out a piece. Love, love, love!!
This is just a picture of the quilt I put up, for autumn...I really am enjoying this quilt. It was a quilt along by Jeni from the Willow...it is still up and free to print off on her face book site.
This beautiful quilt was given to a bypass patient this last week. What a lovely person...never an ugly word or cross thought. Just grateful and oh, so sick. She was an educator, very well read and just a super smart lady. Not only did she have that huge surgery, she had a stroke afterward. All of the nurses are taking turns spoiling her, and being her nurse at the hospital. What a blessing for her...and she loves her quilt!!
This quilt was given anonymously, to donate to a patient. Thank you so much... It went to just the
