Roll Roll Cotton Boll

Posted by Picasa

Are you doing Bonnie Hunter's new mystery.? I am. These are my first set of blocks. Not really Pink but I picked out anything that was in the red family. I'm using scraps of any fabrics that I have with the right colors.

I had my X-ray this morning of my back and boy do I have the hardware. 8 screws. One in each of the 4 lower vertabrae on each side. Will see what the Dr. has to say on Wed. But hope they print out a picture for me although I will keep the X-ray but would like to send it to my son.

I'm getting some little Schnibble's quilted and as soon as I can get some pictures muploaded I will show you.

Hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving.

Some Projects Done

A long time top which I finally finished. I believe it was for the Charm Girls Quilt Along. I ended up setting mine different. Sorry the picture is so light. I think you can click on it and see more detail. I call it Hugs and Kisses,
This is the quilt I had been hand quilting and finally finished. It was the last of the stars which we swapped at Quilter's Hollow about 4 years ago. I  really  like the secondary blocks for the setting. It is all Thimbleberries fabrics.
This is my completed, quilted Schnibbles quilt Called Paganini. I'm doing the second year of the Mini's and this was the first one. I just got it quilted.
Guess I  ought to say a little of where i have been. No place just trying to get some of these quilts finished. I've been doing great. All healed and go back to the Dr. next week with new X-rays of my back. Get that done on Monday.

The only thing I have found I can't do is walk and shop very long without my back starting to hurt. When there is no place to  sit down to rest a bit it is not good. But that too will pass. I am anxious to see what it looks  like now and how it is healing around those cages.

This is the next mini which I just made this week. Of course it is not quilted.  It's from This and That and called Butter Churn

Hope you  all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and don't eat too much. Only my daughter will be up this year so it will be just her and I. Very quite and hope to get a few things done around here that I am unable to do right now.

I have also finally finished quilting the big Carolina Christmas mystery quilt that Bonnie Hunter gave us last year. As soon as I get the binding whipped down I will get a decent  picture of it.

Thanks for sticking by me and checking back. Posted by Picasa
