Life is full of sunshine and showers. First some sunshine...
Last night, everyone brought their first blocks of our theme quilt. I am going to take photos as the year progresses to share the various quilts. My block (above) ended up going in a different direction than I expected. I wanted to make a sepia quilt but when I started pulling out my fabrics, I can across a set of fabrics that Annemarie gave me. I decided this was a perfect project to use them in so my quilt is now pinks, beiges and browns. I choose to substitute a few of the flowers in the field for ribbons daisies. When I was a little girl, I always said daisies were my favorite flower. Nowadays, I do not have a single favorite flower as I love all old fashioned flowers.
The slideshow contains all the blocks that were brought last night. If you want to see them larger, just click on the slides.
And the showers you ask? We had a big sadness last night as one of the members had to tell everyone that her breast cancer has spread into her bones. She is receiving treatment to reduce the pain. We are all hoping it will help and that she will receive the gift of time. So if you are inclined so, please say a prayer for Joke that she has the gift of time. She is dear to me.
