Something To Look At While I'm Gone

Since I have surgery early in the morning and I'm not sure when I'll be back online, I thought I'd leave you with a couple of reasonably pleasant things to look at. First, this month's Schnibbles pattern, State Fair (it's there behind all the "stuff").


I used Mary Engelbreit's Recipe for Friendship fabric for this one and changed the borders a bit. I also added red buttons in the centers of each pinwheel--I'm not sure whether you can see those though.

And here's my latest Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along block--I used orange fabrics for the center and background fabric for the rest. I also added appliqued stem, eyes, and mouth.


And here's something else to look at: Robin has finally taken the plunge into Blogland. Click on her name above to visit her. You may know Robin already--the picture that accompanies her comments is of her black cat wearing a hat. She's visited with us here in Blogland for a long time--but now she's moved in! She has two grandchildren on the way, a new "toy" (an embroidery machine), and a load of creativity, so she's been making baby items and is thinking about starting an online shop. In the meantime, a little birdy told me that Robin's planning a giveaway sometime soon, so don't forget to visit!

Last but not least, if you're curious about how my surgery went, Gran will post an update on her blog. Just click HERE. She and I won't be in touch with each other until sometime later in the afternoon, so she probably won't post the "news" until Tuesday night or Wednesday sometime.

Thanks for all the well wishes on my surgery. Once I can either type left handed or recruit a typist, I'll pop back in to say "hi." I hope to see you before too long!
