How about a Puzzle?

See how the puzzle shows up in this picture. Didn't do that on purpose but sure looks good. It is all finished now so if DD gets up here this weekend like she plains she can take it home with her. It was her design and a good one. Thia is just another view at a different angle but you can at least see it. Hopefully you can see how I quilted it. A little different for me but still the straight lines
Except for the border, Click on it and I'm sur you will be able to see.
I finally got my first lot of fabric, patterns etc for this years Thimbleberries Club. I don't have a local club any more so am getting it online and was beginning to be jealous of the gals in California and Kansas City as they had had their first meeting and got the first month pattern. Well I got 4 months patterns and have made the first two already.
See the Houses and trees over the Schnibles quilt. I like to put them on the wall and look at them , especially now when I didn't have anything big going on.
I'm working on the next one that is a different tree altogether. At least she has used different ones than I have know since I was going to Thimbleberries Clubs.
So I have been keeping busy. At least it's better than spending so much time at the hospital. Hubby is doing really good in Rehab. I think he is surprising himself. Usually when he is in bed for 3 -4 days he looses all his strength and has to start all over. In this one week. He is getting in and out of bed pretty much by himself and has been walking some. Well walking across the room is something for someone that uses a walker to get around a little. We just hope that he keeps those infections gone.
I mentioned DD coming up this weekend. Well maybe Sat. night after playing games at Herndon, a suburb of DC close to Dulles airport. and then planning on coming up and spending the night and Sunday. Unless the storm coming puts a stop to those plans. Since she lives in Southern Maryland and there is where the storm is going they say so she might not even get out on Sat. We are suppose to get a little depending on where it goes. This time it is Virginia that is really going to get it, of course after all those Southern states that it is coming though now.
So guess I will go back to sewing, or maybe reading. This is what my friend Kim says.
Oh, by the way she really hasn't been feeling good. Lets hope that she gets her computer fixed and up running this weekend. At least she has written a little from work. Thanks for stopping by.

Your daughter's quilt is looking great. I am sure she is going to love having it at home with her. I hope she was able to come up to visit and the snow doesn't hamper
her in any way.
I had lunch with my dearest friend today- It was great to see her as I had not been able to catch up with her since we have returned from Christmas vacation( at least in person) I stopped at the library to pick up some books that I ordered and then dropped into the local quilt store who happened to be having a sale on their batiks and some other clearance fabric. I stopped because I was looking for some ergonomic gloves- my hands have been bothering me some because of the computer. I did find a pair 40 percent off and some batiks for a great price.
I have been checking out the One World One Heart blogs - there are so many great artisans out there.
I love your houses and trees by the way.
Hope George continues to progress and that you keep well as you quilt up a storm.
Be well dear friend,
Warmest regards,
Anna

Eileen, is that Schnibbles pattern one of Carrie Nelson's? She is local to me and spoke at my long arm guild meeting on Sat! I didn't realize I had taken a class from her LONG ago, before she started publishing patterns. She is alot of fun!

Sorry for not reading your blog right away, I know you know that my mother is visiting from the "old country" and that has kept me busy, keeping her busy :0)

Beautiful puzzle!! I saw it, I saw it. You DD did do a great job on designing and you made the design come alive with your talent. The Thimbleberries houses and trees make a very pleasant border up on your design wall.

Our Kim is not doing well. Keep her in your prayers.

Hugs

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
