Big Finish



I am elated to have finished the quilt for Shaun Meadows. He is the special soldier that was wounded and lost both his legs one above and one below the knee. He has the most wonderful determanation . I understand that he is walking with his new legs and doing well.My son just sent me a book all about Combat Controlers --The title is CCT THE EYE OF THE STORM by Gene Adcock.My son went into the Air Force as a Combat Controler and had been through so much during his tours but he remains the most outstanding man that a Mother can be so very proud of.My next quilt will be started tomorrow and will be for my wonderful Faith. She will turn 11 on March 25th. Of course the theme will be Ice Skaters which is her first love.Here is a couple of pictures of my quilt for Shaun, hope you like it as much as I do.Happy Weekend to all. Hugs, Marie

Wanna feel good!!!!!!!!!

We are still really under the weather here in our little house. I am on antibiotics but then DH is finnally going to the Dr. today. This has been a week from you know where. Really miss my sewing machine but don't feel like going in there and getting all the stuff out just yet. Our weather is warming up and what a relief. Yes I know you will hear us screaming about the heat this summer. Hope you all are out from under the blizzards ,etc. I am having to use DH's computer and it is so much more touchy than mine. They are coming on Saturday to do some re wireing in our home and then we will all be back on line yeah.Till then I will just be content with maybe a little look at a blog or two as all my favorites are marked on my computer but not his. Miss you all. Till neaxt time--Hugs, Marie

Sicky Happens

We were on a roll then this darn cold weather hit us in sunny Florida and first Ray got the bug and I still kept going like the the bunny as I wasn't going to let nothing get in my way but he likes to share everything and this is not what you want to have shared!!!I can't get warm and I generally have it all over so won't bore you with the details. Just hopes it goes away quickly as I am working a quilt for my biggie of the month.Hope everyone else is doing well and staying warm.Hugs to all, Marie

Now don't all fall over but the BIG choice I have made is to join OPAM group. I will be able to focus on a project each month and finish it plus others as the rules say. I really want to do this.Thanks Peg for working on getting this up again this year. Today I worked on putting the rows together on one of my unfinished quilts so I can finish it this month.I am putting alot of faith in myself and my health.This is a short post as I want to finish another row before I call it a night.Hugs to all, Marie
PS Maybe I am putting the cart before the horse as I haven't heard back from Peg yet but it will still give me a PUSH and I need this!!!!
