Under the I: yellow roses, yellow butterfly, yellow chicks, yellow background letters, yellow background stars.
Under the N: red background dog, red bricks, center space (black), red leaves, red cherries.
Under the G: green swirls, green leaves with ladybugs, green golf course, green background hearts, green swashes.

Have fun!

Show and Tell

Hi Friends!

I've been busy...

Do you notice that this picture is upside down?  Just keeping you on your toes!
This is the quilt for H2H (see the button in the side bar). I have the flimsy done...

and this is the flimsy done for the Project Linus Open House Challenge.  Am I done? Do I need borders on either of these? I'm thinking I'll need to quickly sew the strip quilt that is underneath first and take down the little triangles quilt so I can use my design wall to baste the two challenge quilts. Should have  been working when I was playing computer games. Now I'm up against two deadlines.
Let's see if I can finish them on time. Pink and Red needs to be done by May 4 and May 27 for the H2H quilt.  I'd better get back to work!!!!

For those of you praying for my Chrissy - Thank you and please keep up the good work.  She is back to chemo again. She had the first round last Tues. and is feeling better from that, but the side effects hit her already on this first time, and well, lets just say they are awful. The courage it takes to do this again is phenomenal, IMO!  I could not admire her more.

Thanks for stopping by!

Chrissy is getting better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

=^..^= is what I learned today. I don't remember where I saw it, but it was on one of the blogs I follow, and I just had to try it myself.  Aren't you proud that you stopped here.

My Chrissy is getting better and better. She can walk the stairs to take a shower, but on the way down (after the trip up, and a shower) she needs a nap... Understandable after what she's been through. She has now added a few easy (hopefully) chores, and can do some things around the house. I am always amazed by that woman.

I've only sewn a few rows on my pink and red. Needs to be done sometime in April for the Project Linus Open house.

Notice I have 3 quilts now -overlapped - on my design wall. Can you see them all?

A better view of the laziness.

Here's the bunnies I made to be puppets for my kids and grandkid cards... I just ran out of interest in them. I threw them all into a project box... I hope they aren't doing any math...

The grey ones were to be "grey hares" given  to the kids who gave me so many of them...
and the white ones were for the grandkids... but they are all too old for finger puppets now, and pretty much only interested in computer games and boys.... What's a granny to do?

 I just don't like how the bunnies turned out, so I'm not giving them out.

We have had a turn in fortunes, and the car needs fixing... $400 to the radiator. (Never talk about money in front of your car... We got our tax return, and the car must have known.) It'll be more troubles after that. We've had it a long time, and it is a 2004 model. We've just been lucky to this point that nothing major has come up until now.  For the weekend we are prisoners in our house.  We'll probably walk up to the Taco Bell for a special treat for our Easter Dinner. Can't get the car into the shop until Monday morning. C'est la Vie!

Hope you all have a fun and Blessed Easter.
