This and That

Please visit yesterday's post, celebrating my #400th entry!

Last night I was visiting various blogs and websites, when I remembered to check the progress of my Alzheimer's Quilt. Here it is! It's not for sale yet, as auctions only run at certain times. But there it is, looking all official. Colors are a little off in that picture, though. It makes me feel like a grown-up to have a quilt of mine at a real place, offered for sale. Wow!

Yesterday's mail haul was fun. I got a bunch of blocks for Joanie's quilt. Here's a photo of what I have so far. Aren't they pretty? I can hardly wait to put this quilt together.

I'm loving being on break! Hubby is off work for the same period of time.. and it's so much fun that both of us can sleep in, eat when we want, take naps, and do our little fun projects. He works on Sudoku puzzles while I make quilts. Fun times! Our cat-sitting stint finally ended yesterday. We love our daughter's cat, but are always happy when he goes back home. During this visit Mr. Cat seemed especially fond of me, and had to be with me at all times. Kinda drove me nuts!

Am looking forward to our Book Club Christmas Party tonight... it was postponed two weeks ago due to bad weather. Please, let's not have a repeat of that rotten Weather Man Behavior!

Love the tweeter!

I'm almost done with my Ohio Star, just haven't had much time to work on it. Last night, my machine started eating the fabric...turns out I had enough fuzz to fur a small dog in it :)

What a great colorful quilt this will be for Joanie. She's gonna LOVE it! You and the others who are working this project are such special people to share so much of your talents and to give so much!
It's gonna be a beauty!
