The Oscars

February 27, 2007

Dee of Thea Quilts asked what I wore to the Oscars so I wanted to post this photo…


It was just a little something that I threw together with some hand stitching at the last moment. 🙂

DH is out of the hospital but he has been moved to a rehabilitation facility. He’ll be working with the therapists there to rebuild the strength in his back. They are predicting 2 more weeks before he will be able to come home 😦 I’ll sure be glad when this is all over!!


Surgery Update

February 21, 2007

My husband’s surgery was a complete success! All of the tumor has been removed from his spine. Immediately after the surgery the surgeon was concerned that there would be some paralysis in his right leg. But that did not happen. Ron can get up and walk fine- no paralysis! God is good!


Thank you so much for all of your thoughts and prayers. It was a comfort to hear from each one of you. Ron is still in the hospital but I’m hoping he will be home in 2 or 3 days. He has a lot of healing to do.


Catch you later

February 15, 2007

My DH is going into the hospital today to have a tumor removed from his spine.




So I will be taking off my quilter’s hat and putting on a nurse’s hat for a while.


Catch you later.

My friend Jennifer has an amazing sense of color. Her quilts are always full of color.



Kiddie Quilt

February 9, 2007


This week I finished quilting this Kiddie Quilt for the 40 Quilt Service Project. It was pieced by Debby McCarter. Isn’t it cute? Look at all the bugs and fireworks. There are also cars, frogs and puppies.

Thanks, Debby, for putting this together for the kids.


WIP Wednesday

February 7, 2007

It’s Wednesday again with a chance to look at our Work In Progress. I haven’t gotten a lot of quilting done this week. Spent some more time making adjustments to my quilting machine and table. I must say it is a delight to work on that machine.


The quilting that I did do this week is on a quilt that is to go to the Center for the Intrepid that just opened here in San Antonio. It is pieced of patriot fabrics in the Yellow Brick Road pattern and quilted with a stars and loops pantograph.
