Fun Projects

Here are some fun things that others have been doing. Mary Jane used the frog applique for a onesie. I absolutely love this. Mary Jane asked, “Can’t you just hear him singing ‘Hello My Baby’?”

And this is a quilt that my friend, Sherry, is working on. She made this as a Quilt As Your GO (QAYG), and I love everything about it. Can’t wait to see it finished.

I have almost finished quilting Sherry’s Bargello (how many months has it been on my frame?? – four I think). Last night I rolled it to the last 18 inches. Normally I only quilt about 9-11 inches at a time as that is as much as my arms reach comfortably. Have been babysitting most of the week. My husband had a little complication with his appendectomy (peritoneal hematoma–i.e., internal bleeding after the surgery), so his work this week is to let his body get rid of all that extra blood that is sitting in his abdominal area.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. As soon as I read about your husband, the first thing that came to my mind was the old Rosanna Danna skits on Saturday Night Live. “If it’s not one thing, it’s another.” I’m glad they found it before it caused a major problem.
    The frog looks great on the onesie.

  2. Hope all is well with you Hubby and he now has a speedy recovery. Lots of TLC is always top of the pops in our house when Hubby breaks down – not often thank goodness. 🙂

  3. Post-surgical hematomas are not a fun thing – ask my husband how we know about this stuff. Best wishes for his speedy recovery and for the mental health of his #1 fan and “nurse.”

  4. Marjorie,
    I just won a Accuquilt GO! Cutter. I have the Value Die and the 3×6 finished rectangle die(got that for only $3 at Amazon after using points. What would you suggest that the first die to buy would be to be able to do the “most” with them. Is it better to start with the strip dies. They are expensive so I want to make the best use of my $$.
    I do know that I want the Apple Core and Tumblers. Love those quilts. All help will be greatly appreciated.
