Laura's Birthday Quilt

My last post was in February??? What happened in my life?  I cannot explain except I guess I needed the solitude.



This is Daughter #2's birthday quilt. She wanted mushrooms and loves black and white graphic quilts. this is Bonnie Hunter's Strip Twist a free pattern on her website. ( www.quiltville.com )


Also during this trying physical and mental time my family doctor is retiring! He graduated one year ahead of me and I have been his patient since day one. I cannot blame him for retiring but golly gee...
I had promised him a quilt before I die. And with him retiring put this quilt on the fast track. Needless to say he was very surprised. I waited until the end of my appointment to give him the quilt. I also gave the head nurse a quilt. She moved on to a supervisory position in the office.


I bought this as a kit at a quilt show. Loved the colors!!!


Crochet on the internet and Maggie helping. She loves to snag her tail in my hook...grrrr.... and I ate that solid chocolate bunny in two days.


I had to have this gizmo after seeing it on April Lauer's Facebook post.  After finding it on Ebay and winning it I was so pleased. But my room is way too small for this little beauty. I cannot find a place to place it. And I wanted it soooo bad. I paid $40 for it plus $12.95 shipping. Any takers????


My usual quilting helpers...
don't you know black fabric and white cat hairs...goody!


My Lucky Lucy at a calm moment. These do not happen very often. Actually she has stolen my seat and is defying me to take it back.


I have been crocheting up a storm and not much quilting. I will get some finished photos for those of you who care!!!

Subee, it's so good to see you post again - I had been worried about you - someone said you had some illness... glad you are back online again! And the kitties and the quilts are all fabulous!

I think it is so funny, I have been crocheting lately instead of quilting. Mine was hats and hexagons. Too funny.

Cute quilts and kitties.

Love your daughter's b-day quilt! Glad to hear from you, long time-no see. I have had the same problem with my family doctor. Hope you have better luck than I've had finding someone who begins to fill his shoes. As far as kitties go, can't live with them, but can't live without them.

Love your daughter's b-day quilt. I love black and white quilts too. Glad to hear that you are doing okay and that your kitties are doing their job! Can't live without them.

So glad you're back. I have missed your blog. It is good that you had a break/rest from it and not some bad health issues as was feared. I also gave my doctor a quilt at Christmas time and he and his wife were very pleased with it.

Mary said...

We care, we care. Glad you are back. I can't complain much as I'm a very infrequent blogger myself.

Welcome back! Lovely quilts!

Nice to see you back! A little change of pace, kitties, and chocolate are all very healing. Glad to see you well again!

Glad to see you back to posting. I do understand how sometimes that we just need a little bit of time for "us"

Your quilts are lovely as usual. I always enjoy seeing what you are working on.

Have a wonderful and Blessed day

I've been missing you and your blog. I'm always interested in what you are quilting, sewing, and crocheting. Love the black and white quilt. Looks like something my daughter would like.

I was beginning to wonder if you were o.k. Glad to see a new post; love your quilts. I know what you mean about a favorite doctor retiring; so kind of you to give him a quilt.

Happy Quilting!
