It’s Been A Bit

It has been a VERY long bit. I am trying to be back, my Mom is in her ninth week of rehab. and I’m just about….done. I will share more when it’s possible and when I have the were about me to do it. 

Husband said last Friday night, “Grab your camera and let’s go see the Clydesdales” We drove down, pulled in, parked in the first row, walked around the corner AND

The Month of August Quilt Patterns WAS to be MY Month????

I hope you enjoyed the Month of Augusts FREE quilt patterns. It was a huge project and I don’t think I will be doing that anytime soon again.

I always have a VERY well outlined plan and this past month blow that to crap. My mom fell and broke her right femur 13 cm, one plate and ten screws later. Five days in the hospital and now in full time rehab, no weight on her right leg for six weeks. She pretty much is done, she had very little strength before the fall and now….it’s up to her and her spirit how much she will regain. And probably me?

All the emotions can be seen on my face, I am exhausted, have done nothing I want or like to do and when I do have time….I just can’t seem to do it??? In my wimpy voice, “I didn’t get the book done I wanted, I didn’t get any art started for the holiday’s and the most important I’m not swimming every day.” I, I, I……

So for the next little bit, I’m going to just be !  I need to get myself together !  Please take a moment and look around my quilt pattern shop. Now it the time to start a new quilt ! 

Stop at my Quilt Pattern Shop and purchase a quilt pattern !

DAY 31 of FREE Quilt Pattern Block MONTH from The Quilt Ladies

To say doing a quilt pattern block for a month was a good idea….. may be pushing it for me right now, kind of the looked good on paper idea.  But, it has gotten me into a schedule again. As I just said that, “I am taking a few days off” So give me a couple of days and I will have September’s Quilt blocks of the month up and the site. 

I hope you are using and enjoy my quilt blocks. I can’t say it enough, thank you all for your years of support, I can only do this because you purchase my quilt patterns. Again, thank you !

From The Quilt book which started my quilt pattern company “The Ladies” quilt pattern book. “The Ladies” are The Quilt Ladies. They quilt every Tuesday together and after years of doing that, they’ve decided to do a quilt pattern book. So “The Ladies” was born, a quilt block sampler pattern book with 68 – Eight by Eight Inch quilt pattern blocks. If you make the quilt as in the book the finished quilt measures 76″ x 84″ All straight pieced, all cutting and piecing instructions included.

Quilt Block has a finished size of eight inches by eight inches.
