It Arrived!!

Yes.  The cutter finally arrived!  Unfortunately, I was in the middle of designing a quilt so didn't do much more than to open the box and look at it.  I took a photo to prove it's here and maybe, just maybe, I'll have some photos of a rug in progress to share soon.

Here's a preview of the quilt I'm designing. 

Here's a block I worked on during mom's chemo session.  It's close to being finished (hopefully I'll have it done later this week when I get to meet with my applique group).

It will join this block

To become this quilt.

I received this book for Christmas from a wonderful friend.  Snow days are absolutely perfect for snuggling up with a good book and thoughts of times past. 

The past week was mostly good - mom had a few bad days but overall I'd call it a good week.  She has a birthday tomorrow and I think she deserves something special.  I hope you have a wonderful week.  Make some time for yourself.


  1. Please extend happy birthday wishes to your Mom. I hope she has a very special day. Your applique is beautiful as always. I just got a partial snow day and used it to accomplish several little things around the house. That felt so good! Maybe I can get a full snow day before the winter is over so I can sew all day.

  2. Hi Jean
    I kind of hate to admit it but I kind of like a snow day now and then. It's fun to watch it come down and know you don't have to get out but can stay inside and play all day. Mom had a nice day - brought her cupcakes rather than a cake so she can nibble when she wants. Thanks for the well wishes!

  3. The quilt you are designing looks to be a very good design. I so love prim style.
