Good Things

Now that the torrential rains have cleared away the muggy air, we are blessed with bright sunny dry air that is lovely. I took my photo opportunities outdoors. First is this wonderful prize that I won for entering the Binding Blitz on Julie K's blog.

The creams and tans bundle of Fat Quarters are all Civil War and there are six of them! Wheee! THANK YOU, so very much, Julie!!

 All you need to do to join the Binding Blitz, is to finish binding a quilt, photograph it, and hook up onto the Linky Party on her blog at the end of each month.

Speaking of Civil War reproduction fabrics, I used these for my next Stars in a Time Warp block for Barbara Brackman's Civil War Sew Along. Link.

The chintz in the center of the block actually doesn't have the fine machine engraving in the background, but the pinks do. It is a compromise, but I love the way the block came out!

You may click on any picture to enlarge it.

We had fun at the Senior Center in Alton, New Hampshire at our weekly Sunshine Club meeting. We all laughed when the weather was pouring rain!!

Beverly brought in some Hersey's Milk Chocolate Nuggets WITH ALMONDS, so we all felt like a nut as we chomped our chocolates!

A very important visit was Wednesday, when I saw my very dear friend, Frances, who is to be released from the hospital and is going into a local well-run nursing home. Frances was 99 on March 9th of this year and we're all rooting for her to make 100!

Love that impish grin! You go, girl!!!

Happy sewing!

Yay, go Frances!
I always love your Civil War stars. Can't wait to see them all together in a quilt.

What a lovely win from dear Julie!
You always create wonderful stars, Vic. This is no exception.
Oh, dear Frances. What an example for us all, and she is lucky to have you for a friend!
