I just finished my sixth square of 2011 for my charity quilt group... This one is from a kit and it is a cute little dog that will go into the dog quilt. I bought the kit on sale at Jo Ann's along with a Dolly Mama kit so I will be starting her tonight. I think my new goal for the month of February will be a Dolly Mama quilt. If anyone has any of the Dolly Mama or Mill Hill patterns that you no longer want or need, I would love to have them...
The WOCS ladies have been stitching and getting lots of squares done, soon as I have all the squares for a quilt I will be choosing fabrics and using my Accuquilt GO to cut out the blocks. Sometimes it is hard to choose just the right color or pattern for a quilt. I try to match or coordinate fabrics to match the colors in all the squares and normally there is 5 to 9 squares per quilts. It is a challenge and I just love a challenge.
Oops, I almost forgot to share my news with you all. I went to the foot doctor yesterday and I have another month of sitting on my derriere and keeping my foot up. Why just another month... well, I am scheduled to have surgery on the 25th of February to fix the foot for good. All the treatments just would not work this time. There were three options and even though the one I chose was the radical one, it is the one that has the best results. I didn't want to do the other two options and have them not work and have to spend more down time. So I am getting the surgery and I am told I will be able to walk on the foot that same day... I can't wait to get this all over with. After all Spring is coming and there is spring cleaning and gardening to do plus I want to have a yard sale, I can not afford to be hobbling along.
Have a great day and I hope you enjoyed my little dog... Nana Bonnie
