I finished block #9 of the Civil War Bride quilt.
For those who are familiar with the pattern you will notice the peacock has hidden her feet behind pesky leaves. As in a previous block, I wasn't about to wrestle with all those teeny tiny toes. Amazing how easily hiding behind a leaf makes the block go!
Here's my progress on the quilt.
I also finished a top that will become a block of the month for Sager Creek Quilts. Here's a sneak peak of a few of the blocks. I will wait to show the entire quilt but will assure you it's fun and happy.
Sew Graceful Quilting opens their retail location at 14094 Pleasant Ridge Road Jan 4. They still have a few openings in the Friendship's Gift block of the month.
I did get a chance to hook a little yesterday with my friend, Anne, but we gabbed so much I'm afraid I have pitifully little to share.
I have been very busy with my mother. That's where the good news/bad news comes in. Good news is her colon cancer is gone and very little chance of recurrence. The bad news is the lymphoma has spread to 2 parts of her body. We found that out Christmas Eve Eve (the 23rd) so Christmas was kind of difficult for me. She had a chemo port "installed" last week and will start chemo this Thursday. Of course, I'll go with her and bring my applique. I would like to thank you for your thoughts and prayers on our behalf. Please keep them coming!
