Could it be spring??

I love spring! Our daffodils are blooming and the weather is finally warming up. The only thing I don't like is stupid Daylight Savings Time.

That's how I feel. It needs to stop!!

On a sad note, a friend of mine, and an especially close friend to my sister, Patty, passed away recently from kidney failure while waiting for a transplant. It was so sad. The internet quilt group I am involved with, ABC Quilters, made blocks and I put them together for a quilt in her memory. I donated the quilt, plus another to the dialysis center near me. They were so happy to receive them. Dialysis patients are hooked up to the machines for an average of 4 hours, 3 days a week. They get very cold and always need blankets. Keep dialysis centers in mind when you have lap quilts to donate.

This quilt was a round robin from The Quilting Bee Forum.  

This is the quilt and label of the quilt by ABC Quilters. Jane will be missed by so many. She was a lovely person and an awesome quilter.

I'm currently making Itty Bitty Quilts from a book by Mari Martin. They are very sweet and quick. I'm making 2 extra sets for Christmas gifts this year.




Life's been good to me so far. (Did you sing that?? lol.  Hope it's good for you too.
