Friday Night Sew-In progress...


Remember the 9-Patch Pizzazz blocks HERE?
I sewed this 36-inch square together using some of those blocks.
This will be easier for me to quilt than a larger quilt.
AND... I have blocks left over for another project!

Also, I stitched a bit of the Little Birdie Stitches.

I am using a Kona for the background and
 Moda Whimsy to surround the blocks.
When I began blogging in February last year,
I won the charm packs from Karen over at Log Cabin Quilter.
If you love applique and prim, be sure to visit her and say hello.

"Keep your face to the sunshine...

...and you cannot see the shadow.
It's what the sunflowers do."
~Helen Keller

Nothing says fall like sunflowers,
except of course, mums!
While blog hopping, I've noticed so many cute projects for fall.

It just seems lately I have been seeing one doctor after another.
Two appointments today!
There was one yesterday and two on Tuesday.
My post-op followup Tuesday went well... doing nicely.
I was very pleased about that, but it looks like I will need a root canal.
Oh, joy!
Thanks for all the well wishes, too.

☼   ☼  ☼  ☼  ☼  ☼  ☼  ☼  ☼

There is a road trip in the near future...
if all goes well today with these two appointments.

☼  ☼  ☼  ☼  ☼

Have a great day, and I'll be back later this afternoon.

G o b s m a c k e d ! ! !

~or in other words, astonished... utterly
(I have probably been watching too much BBC!)
Look what just arrived!!!




Still a bit teary eyed... sheesh!
(Hormones, you know.)
These are from my new dentists!
One is the general dentist and the other a surgeon.
I had surgery Tuesday morning so that is why I have been MIA
for a couple of days since my marathon sew weekend.
Still on the "mushy diet" and taking it easy.
I go back for the post-op follow-up next Tuesday.

Hope your day is going well...

Karen
