I would love to say that I have been busy?

I would love to say that the world is filled with sunshine and roses, daffodils, and poses.

Skipping before I walk,
jumping before I run.

The world as we know it always takes a turn of events that interrupts our various plans and programs.

Say tornados for one. (truly sad with the devastation in Oklahoma)
Sickness for another (hacking and sneezing here)

People have left comments on my giveaway about needing this fabric for the sick and the needy.

  Have explained what good they can do with it.

This I know to be true.

  All of you have the "quilter's heart"

but unfortunately I am not rich and can not shower all of you with fabric sunshine.

The one winner is babscorbit​t (known as Barb)...doesn't that name have a ring to it? 

 Instead of an envelope, I will send a box. I decided that not much can be made from a prepaid envelope.

thanks to all of you who have come by and commented, I did try to respond to you by email and via your blogs.


The one thing I have been doing is working on this quilt.

It is a shame that all of you can not come to my home and look at this quilt, it is soooooooooooooo much more bright, cheery, beautiful up close. 

I would even let you pet it.  This quilt is for a California King bed, my bed is just a standard King.

I have one row of triangles to quilt, that is today's job and then onto the last two borders.  I am so excited to get this done. 

Fourth son has a birthday today, he will be here tonight, third son is coming to visit for a week.  It just doesn't get much better than that.   So I guess you can say that sunshine has spread it's way to my home via my children.

I'll trade you the poison ivy on my toes for whatever crud you have. lol Your California King is gorgeous! I'm in awe that you would make something so gigantic. Good luck with it, and with your respiratory affliction.

Happy trails,

Hi Barb beautiful quilt I love the colours. How big is a California king? The weather up here is crazy with one day being 90 degrees and the next day going down to 45 . It is very hard on the body, I hope you are over your colds or are they allergies. Allergies very bad this year . Enjoy your sons I know that you always do . Take care and feel well soon

Jacque said...

You are so kind to say that I could pat it if I were there....some quilters won't let others do that! Reckon I could talk to it, too? LOL Seriously, Barb, it is just beautiful. I'm sorry you've not been well, and I hope having the boys in and out of the house will cheer you. Hugs!

And your quilt is very beautiful. What a fun design with cheerful colors.

Barb, that quilt is stunning. I would so love to 'pet' it. And having your sons there--nothing could be finer. Hope you enjoyed their visits.
