    Hi Pam, thanks for the goodie. And yes, on the difficult days it's hard to wait, but then again I'm not so excited about the actual procedure. I do look forward to feeling well though. Thanks for the kind thoughts.
    PS I didn't see the other comment you left on my page last week. Of course we are friends! I'm not sure why my name doesn't appear on the feed. I wonder if I turned mine off somehow? I'll see if I can figure out how to check that LoL.
    Also, I think it's great that you are working on your grandmother's blocks. That's really precious. No one besides me has ever quilted a thing in my family besides me. You are a very blessed lady!

    Hi Pam,
    I kept meaning to comment on your Christmas blog - WOW! Were you productive! That's wonderful that you make so many gifts. That's so special to get something handmade, and I'm sure your family appreciates the thought and effort.

    Your busyness inspired me to make some of my ideas for projects into actual projects. emoticon
    My daughter is getting married in September, so I've been crocheting an afghan for her and her fiance, plus I've decided to make her garter and a few other little things. I'm toying with the idea of making myself a lightweight shawl for the wedding, but it really depends on what my dress looks like.

    Thanks for setting such a great example for the rest of us, especially folks like me who are a bit too lazy for their own good. emoticon

    Thanks Pam, for the candles. I am relaxing this weekend (maybe too much LoL). I did get a little bit of quilting done earlier and then dinner, plus the haircut and now DH & I are playing a game of Words with Friends on the ipad. I won the first round, now I'm going to let him win...that's fair right? I appreciate the goodie! Very inspiring to have such sweet friends.
    Hugs & Blessings,

    I will keep posted what and when I do get to work on my quilt and different projects. It took me a whole day to do the firsts block, and I hope to make another one today. Its not a hard block, but it you have two 2 inch squares and sew them together, then you take strips and sew two to that 4 inches, being a 4 inch piece of a 2 inch wide strip, then cut excess off and do the other side with same color, and cut, and repeat until you have the amount of trips needed. Just remember to do two on each side. Its tat easy! then square the whole block and make sure you do two opposites to counter mirror each other and sew those four together and you have your block! I love this pattern. Its easy but I had to figure it all out before I knew what to do. First block took the most time. I am sure I can zip thru it once I get my material worked out. But I could not find the same colors or materials so it may not be all that I wanted, but I will make ti a valentine quilt. Love hearts! Just remember that two strips of the same color are needed on each side of the two beginning squares. That's how the foundation is. It a sort of lopsided log cabin but its square. (See picture) one to the left and the other to the right on foundation 2 / 2 inch squares. All the rest is, is two inch wide strips sewn to it. just need to know you need two separate colors for the last strip so they will be like opposites. Light versus a darker ending strip. but the ones that cross over and make the X are all the same color! Its a fun block! A challenge too! Have fun, try it with darks and lights! I may do opposites squares in a black and white! emoticon
