Happy Monday

We are making progress here on the medical front at least. DH got the boot off last week and is slowly increasing his walking. His return to work date is next Tuesday. DD#1 has been back to the Dr. and was given permission to start taking short walks outside. She was so excited. Luckily, the weather warmed up a bit so she was able to go out and enjoy her little walks. On the way home from the Dr. she and her friend went to JoAnn Fabrics. That was her walk for the day.

DD#2 is home from school for spring break. She has been very busy this semester so we have only seen her once since she went back in January. It is always fun to have her around. She is funny and has many stories to share about school, the roommates,and campus craziness.

We are hoping to have a craft day this week at DD#1's. It will be the three of us plus my sister.I  hope it works out. I know we will have fun. Probably will not get anything done, but just getting together is fun.

This is on my design wall. OK it isn't really a design wall, it is a flannel backed tablecloth that I hung on the wall. Hey, it works. My sister asked me if it was a crop circle. Someone else told me it looked like a huge paper plate. One of these days, a real design wall.....LOL. Anyway I am working on a layout for my APQ blogging buddies swap quilt. That is going to need a BIG label.

I am also pondering how to finish this. I just stitched the applique. The shop where I got the kit had made it into a pillow. I have been trying to think what else I can do with it. Maybe Liri will let Flit come help me for a day. My muse seems to be on  a long vacation.

More later. Have a great week and lets go sew!


  1. I'm glad to hear everyone is healing nicely! A day with your sister and girls sounds like lots of fun, enjoy yourselves! The butterfly is beautiful, can't wait to see what you decide to do with it. Hey, whatever works for a design wall is OK, I use my floor. My sewing space is too small for a design wall, it is also our computer room/office and my husbands closet is in there. Have fun with the swap blocks, there are so many possibilities. Have fun!

  2. I'm glad to hear both your hubby and daughter have been given the go-ahead to walk. I hope they continue to heal quickly. Your projects look great - the butterfly is beautiful. Enjoy your craft day, even if you don't get much done!

  3. It is so nice to hear that your husband and daughter are both doing well. I hope that continues. I love your butterfly. What about a table mat or a wall hanging instead of a pillow (although I think that a pillow would be lovely). Maybe Flit has a cousin, or perhaps Liri could clone her. I could certainly use her help.


  4. Good news about your hubby and daughter being up and about, at least a little, again. I like your design wall :) If you can stick quilt blocks to it, it counts! Your butterfly is lovely. I'm sure you'll find just the right project to use in. Have fun working on the swap block quilt.

  5. Hey, I like your design wall, as well as what's on it! When everyone gets to feeling better, you will get the pretty butterfly project figured out. ---"Love"

  6. Glad things are looking up on the medical front. Your design wall is fine as long as it works, LOL. What's the butterfly made of? It looks like wool. It would be a great middle for a quilt full of flowers! Flit said she would be glad to help. You can bounce ideas off her.


  7. Glad to hear that your family is recovering;) Healing can be slow sometimes. Looking forward to seeing your finished quilt. As for the design've got more than I do;)
    Happy Quilting!!
