Oh what pretty skin!

Finally, William’s skin is looking good. YAY for his Mom who has been so persistent with Doctors and medicine. And YAY for William that he isn’t so miserable!

I have been working on a batch of postcards all day.  I have no idea why, but I chose to do a more tedious, time consuming design.  What was I thinking?  Well….. I just like it!  Each one has machine embroidery on it, and that takes 10 mins to sew out.  I have about 12 more to sew out before I can quilt them and do the edges.  Good thing I have a month to do them!

The postcard theme is Your Birthstone.  Mine is aquamarine.  So the cards….. well….. think aquamarine.  The color aquamarine and sparkly.  Very sparkly.  Do you know what happens with sparkly, glittery fabric?  We will be finding sparkles forever, I am sure.  Now, if I could just get them all off of ME!  In places I never even touched!  They must just float around and migrate?  Oh my, you would be surprised what all can sparkle!

I also got these blocks done for a comfort quilt for Gina.  One of her sons was killed in a car accident, her other son was critically injured.  Ronda is putting the blocks together, then will quilt it and give it to Gina.  Hopefully, this is a way to help Ronda cope some with her own grief over the loss of her own son 2 months ago.

I am STILL reading  The Divide.  I should be done, but I haven’t spent much time reading.  (Steve, on the other hand, has read 4 books in the last 2 weeks.)  I may have to just sit under a quilt in my jammies and finish it.

    William looks great. You can’t tell he had problems. Our new granddaughter has very red skin. It’s like a circle that covers her little face and looks like a very bad sunburn. I love your blocks.

    I think this will be a fun swap too. I’m on both groups too. Guess I should get started! Looking forward to seeing what you do.
