I'm on a roll!


Farm Quilt - Block #20
Originally uploaded by lasassone
This is block #20 in the Ruby McKim Farm Quilt design set. I finished it last evening - 10/20/09.

Only 5 more designs to go! I can't believe how speedy I've been with these blocks. Part of the credit belongs to my doctor and a new arthritis medication. My hands are SO much better. Not swollen and sore like they had been for quite some time.

Crazyquilt stitching and flat out embroidery has become SO much easier! And, after 7 weeks, I can't say that I notice any bad side effects either.

Well, today is G and my 42nd wedding anniversary and we are about to leave to go out to an early dinner. We can't believe it's been 42 years because, looking back, it just seems like yesterday. Loads of memories, 3 daughters and 7 grandkids.......imagine that!

You are making a lot of progress on the blocks. Happy Anniversary!

What's the new medicine you're taking for your arthritis.

Dear LouAnne, I'm so excited that your hands are so much better with the medication! And you're really on a roll with these quilt blocks. I love the farm theme (I work as a bookkeeper for a local historic farm) and can't wait to see your finished product. We miss you at CQI and I hope you can perhaps delve back into CQ as time allows. Big hugs, Cathy PS - I'm a grandma now, too! How is Jackson and company?? How about some pictures??
