I did the Fri night sew in for the past two months but have forgotten to post after wards. Well this month I got very little done that Fri. night. It was the rehearsal dinner night for my Step daughters wedding but I came home and quilted (long arm) a baby blanket. Camera battery out so I will have to wait to post pics. The wedding was beautiful, thought life was back to normal, trying to catch up on some quilting but I had a little hitch on the quilt that was on my machine. So I spent a few days piecing. I was 7 months behind on my buck a block and I had a secret sister block of the month for years now that I have been working on. but the quilt got repaired and done. Pics to come once I get new batteries. So life back to normal NOT. My birthday came and was a wonderful day until that night got a call from sister that lives close to parents. Dad is going in for heart procedure. Guess they call it angioplasty (I have no clue she just said they go in and try to open veins with balloon). So 750 miles away I stress all the next day, get home from work and yep by-pass surgery. He is 86 more stress.Get the call, quadruple by-pass.I hate being so far. For a week keep in touch by phone and the sisters, there are 5 of us, decide that we need to be there when he gets out. One sister living close has hurt her leg so her help has no ended so that leaves the other sister close, she does a might fine job of transporting mom back n forth. Props to ya Marla. I arrange to take a week off work so I left on the Oct 9th for MO. I have spent the past week helping with whatever I could to take the stress off my mother and to assist with my father. Got home late last night. So now can life get back to normal. Gosh I hope so.


  1. Thanks for the comment on my blog. Hope your dad gets well soon. What part of MO? I'm from MO originally.

  2. Hope your Dad feels better soon. I'm sure loved having your there!

  3. I hope your Dad is getting better.
    I am wondering if you could help me in tracking down the Ribbon Quilt pattern that you and your friends made on retreat. I so love it and have googled and cannot find a reference to it. Could you please e-mail me at to let me know where I can find it.
    Thanks a lot.


Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you back again!
