Several people have e-mailed and asked me about The Civil War Bride Quilt pattern so I thought I'd post an update. The pattern is available through Threadbear for $40. Threadbear is located in Australia http://www.threadbear.com.au/quiltpatterns.php but Corliss, the shop owner, has it set up so ordering is easy and painless through paypal. I know a couple of shops in the US are offering this as a block of the month. Homestead Hearth in Mexico MO http://www.homesteadhearth.com/ and Common Threads Quilting in Waxahatchie TX http://commonthreadsquilting.com/.
Now on to the real reason for my post. I have the best husband in the world. The other day I spent an afternoon with a friend playing in fabric. I thought that was the best day ever until I got home and found these waiting for me.
Included was the nicest card thanking me for all I do. Recently my husband was diagnosed with malignant melanoma. His doctor removed all the cancer but left quite a hole in his back. Yes -- his back.......guess who got to clean and bandage him every day. That task probably sounds like it would be easy but tell that to someone like me who is a total whimp when it comes to blood.
Anyway, hope you have a great day. I am almost finished with my bride block and will post it soon.
