These are blocks I made at the retreat I was at this month. Top one is my christmas block for my guild potluck. Block on left is a friendship block for a guild member and right hand block is for a friends 60th birthday. Quilt beside my block was made by a guild member at the retreat for her daughter.

I was given a bunch of half square triangles plus extra material one year from the person that had me as a secret pal. If finally found a design that I likes and set up the blocks as in this picture. I now have them all sewn together with a border around them. Unsure if I am going to add more borders or not.
Wow, Just see that Oct. 18 was the last time that I posted. I am really not doing too well here. These two block are for the new BOM I am currently working on from Cotton and Candy Quilt store in Strathmore.

Well, I blew that one. I had a note typed and made a mess of uploading the picture. If you click on the address of previous post you will see the picture of the hot pad that I made. I saw a design I quite liked in Alaska. I have made 3 hot pads and 2 baby quilt tops in a similar design. I did enjoy making them. Happy quilting. :)Carol

I hope I haven't posted this before. It is a table runner I made for a wedding shower gift of a coworker. I used half square triangle from another project to make the windmills and then added royal blue to what I had. It is very hot today in the 30's. Hubby is prepping for a colonscopy tomorrow. Not the easiest day. I've gone to basement to sew a couple of times today. It is nice and cool there. Computer service was down for a bit today but it back now.

I started to blog the other day, but I was on my new account and there were not any photos in the file so day I am trying again. The first two pictures of are chair pads that I made for the chairs at my work. We have a few stains on the chairs and these will make them look better.

It has been awhile since I last posted. We went on a cruise to Alaska from Vancouver, in June. It was great. Scenery was amazing. We did have a lot of rain but it was still great. Only thing that we did not like about the cruise was the smoking policy on the Volendam, Holland America. We could be enjoying the scenery on the promenade deck and a person could come up beside us and light up a cigarette. We did not appreciate that and usually had to move and lose the enjoyment of the scenery that had been ours. So far we are not happy with the response about the matter that we have/havenot received from Holland America.

This is a pin cushion I made from a kit. I gave this one away to my secret pal last year. I need to make another one for myself. It is on my to do list.
I'm off to work in a few hours. Hope to get some sewing done soon. Haven't made it to my sewing room for a while. Of course I was just sick for about a week with a cold. Almost gone now.
Happy quilting to all.

This picture is a crazy quilt made by a member of my craft guild. I added ties so it could be used for a resident in a wheelchair, where I work.
It is hard to believe that I have not blogged since Oct. Too busy playing online games, I guess. I really need to get back to doing this more frequently. I spent 2 weeks in Jan. in Florida visiting my Mom. Had a great time. Wasn't over warm but it was warmer then home. The day I came home the temp in Florida was about 65F or so and it was minus 29C here(-20F). What a temperature switch.
I am just getting over a bad cold. Had to take 2 days off. After 6 days I went to the ER in hospital I work at and got and xray and meds. My cough is finally a bit better but it took till the last day of antibiotic. Still have some coughing but not as bad as it was.
Today is my last of 5 days off or it's back to work tomorrow.
We moved my fatherinlaw into a seniors apartment on Friday and Saturday this past weekend. Hope he likes it there. He was Alzheimers and is starting to not manage quite as well on his own. We are trying to get him to stop driving as well. It is hard for him to lose that independance. The closest any of his kids is 3 hours away so it is a little difficult for us. His computer didn't get hooked up correctly when we were there but he has it done now. We have him email us twice a day and so far it has been working well. We talk to him frequently too.
Well I have lots to do today so I had better get started at something other then just the computer.
