Another Top Assembled

Is completed. And it doesn't look like I made a dent in the pile of four patches. So I will make another  top in this style.

 My long arm got a spa treatment this afternoon and is performing very nicely. You know what I'll be doing today and this weekend.  Finishing Quilty Hugs for Monday's visit.

Another Bag/UFO Tackled

I have had my Allietare quilt top in a bag.  It only needed four blocks to be made.  Friday evening that was my task.  Saturday I continued and finished sewing all the long rows.  I did it my way which is different than the pattern.  I'm on the fence about borders or not.  It will percolate for a little while while I decide.  The good news is that the bag is GONE and there is one less UFO.  It can be quilted as is if I so desire.

I won a scrap give away ("squirrel poop") from Katie Mae.  LOL!  Cute scraps!

Friday my long arm will get a spa treatment as I have been having a lot of thread shredding.

The Joy of Giving

Yesterday while at the chemo lab, I gave three quilts to cold chemo patients.  The last one, the large batik quilt was presented to a man.  Tears streamed from his eyes after laying the quilt on him.  After a hug I was filled with joy for the whole day.

Two More Chisel Tops

I sewed two more chisel quilt tops this past weekend.  I have three chisel columns remaining.  I'm sure that they will get incorporated into another top.  The stack of tops keeps growing and I can stop making them.   🐸🐸🐸

From scraps to a top

Remember that bag of scraps that I mentioned I was going to stitch? Well they all got stitched into long lengths of coins. There is enough for another top but I wanted to show this one.

Health news.  Hubs doctor has stopped chemo as it is no longer working.  We are going to try a immunotherapy drug Opdivo.  It has a long list of side effects.

As for me I had treatment number two today (BCG) and all is well with me.

Stitching keeps me focused on the positive and knowing I can help others.  Monday I will be giving quilts at the oncology center.  🐸🐸🐸

Weekend Update

I had a bag of scraps that I was tired of looking at so I did something about it. I turned them into MAM blocks. All 55 blocks.  Now all that's remaining are short scraps that will become coins.

A batch of Carolina chain blocks.  A Bonnie Hunter design.  I have at least one more bag of carolina chain blocks to sew into a top.

A donated top from a member of High Country Quilters NC. This will be sent to Heart Builders for their November quilt drive.

High Country Quilters Work Shop NC

Friday was a great day in the mountains of North Carolina. The students really surprised me with their creativity. We all had such a good time as you will see in the photos.

This lady brought projects from the stain glass string workshop that I taught last year. She did an excellent job!!!
