Two more for Project Linus!

Two more panels for Project Linus in Memory of Jan J. One is called "Animal Mamas and Babies" and the other is "Nighty-Nite." Maynard quilted both of them with a flying star pantogram. They will be taken to the East Texas Project Linus when we have accumulated enough. Who knows how many "enough" is---we'll take whatever we have the next time we want to go shopping at Stitchin' Heaven the great quilt store in Quitman, Texas which is a designated drop-off point!!!! LOL!!

Today I'm embroidering the last purse block of the Heirloom Romance quilt--it seems funny to be working on the last block--of course there is still lots of embroidery to do, since I want to embroider some of the seams that I sew the quilt together with, but it seems like this quilt has gone quickly, even though I had my arm in a sling after my shoulder surgery for part of the time! Actually it helped the time pass by more quickly that my arm was in the sling because this was something that I could work on, so I'm thankful for that!!! My shoulder is healing nicely and I only have 2 more weeks of Physical Therapy left. Full Range of Motion may be achieved by June which will be 4 months time since the surgery. (That's what they tell me anyway!!!)

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

It is so good to hear that your arm is healing and see that you are back at it in full force! Those quilts are going to make someone very happy.
