I choose to dedicate a lot of time to these Quilts Of Valor, believing that our military risks everything for us and I will not offer anything less than my best to them.

The Atwood girls are finally catching up! Watch out world these amazing women are the next generation!Annelyse June Atwood arrived a little early as is usual for her very prompt Momma! Both of her siblings were a couple of weeks early also. Weighing in at 6lbs.14 ozs. And 21.25 inches long she is just perfect. I will post a photo as soon as I get one! She joins sister Paisley and brother Sterling. Her quilt is below in Ashlee’s requested colors, pink and teal.
Another baby quilt for a baby girl due next month for extended family members. Mom’s requested colors for Isla Sofia’s quilt are sage/cactus green/tan and dusty pink, I really had no appropriate greens so of course I had to go fabric shopping.
This beautiful quilt came from Texas and I love it enough to want to make one too! It took me a few days to figure out how I wanted to quilt it but it really needed custom and the feather wreaths in the beads were easy but oh those circles took me a very long time using different sizes of templates.
In AZ the room will need to be chilled for the summer,LOL.

A friend brought me the quilt her Grandmother made for her as an infant so it's close to 80 years old and has had good use. Consequently the binding is frayed and the area at the top of the quilt has deteriorated to the point that it really isn't useable.

That's all I could say when I realised how slack I have been about blogging, and I have noticed that some of my fellow bloggers are even worse! Not that I haven't thought about it and knowing I was soooo far behind wondering how I would catch up, but life has been harder and my "spare" time less!
In addition to the global covid debacle and my husband's cancer treatments and entertaining two days a week our now 15 month old delightful granddaughter, there's the fact that I finally succumbed to covid at Christmas time and ended up with double pneumonia! I had easily avoided the infection for two years until we all went to Boston for Christmas and on the fifth day there came down with a variant, something I had not yet been exposed to. It went through the entire family and for everyone else it was like a cold or a bit of a cough but I became very very ill. I do believe that my lungs have finally cleared as I am no longer wheezing and returned to the gym this week with no adverse effects except for some mild soreness in muscles that had not been used for a couple of months!
