    A Texas snowman theme could be fun. When I loved in Tx we had the kiddos make Tx snowmen art projects: styrofoam balls covered in glue, then rolled around in sand/dirt with details made from rocks, sticks and pieces of bandanas. They were actually very cute.

    Great Tam...Moo. That will light a fire under me! I'm waiting on that picture. In the meantime I'm going to get busy hunting Texas things. I have a lot saved under that idea also. I love the Texas flag. It is so beautiful to me.

    Very nice Tam Moo! that is gorgeous. Will you want more colors added? Would you like us to stick to a certain palet? I love it, and wonder if you have a place in mind for the finished product to wind up. Are you thinking of any sashing? Wow, you got my juices running!! My sister is visiting in 8 days, I've spent every spare moment getting the house in order. That means UNPACKING and hanging and placing!! LOL I'm down to hanging pictures and putting out trinkets! It is amazing how my new home is becoming a "Home"! Then spent a couple of hours last night cutting up my step moms clothes. 5 boxes sorted by fabric, now to get nice flat pieces to cut. I want to have the fabric ready when she gets here so we can sew. We are making 7 lap quilts from the clothing for family. THEN I can concentrate on my row for my quilt. I am banking ideas!! I don't have any of her clothes or anything, but I do have her drivers license and her casino badge. I'm thinking of putting pockets with clear plastic that I can put the items in. I want to go home right now and get started on it. Dang Gum It, why do I have to work? I'd much rather be home sewing.

    I hear ya Buslady! Why am I at work today??? My dad is end stage and will go at any time, but I just couldn't sit home thinking about it. Now that I'm at work, I'd rather be home and playing with fabric. I need a creative outlet right now, so working on blocks for my quilt is definitely going to be a priority the next few days. I can't fly back to Florida since I don't have the money, and Mom has no intention of having a service right away. See, my dad has been suffering from dementia for over 10 years now, and lost all quality of life 4 years ago, so it's going to be a blessing when he passes. Mom has been taking care of him at home (home hospice care) for these many years, so it's going to be a huge burden off her shoulders also. I just hope she adjusts to living alone and not having to plan her entire day around dad care. I'm too distracted to do much here at the office, good thing it's quiet today.

    So sorry to hear about you and your mothers sadness. It is so hard when demential is the culprit. When is the person really gone? Like you said, not to wish him gone or anythiong, but it will actually be a blessing for him and everyone that has had to watch the process. All my best wishes out to you dear mother. She will need your support more than anything when this drama is over for her. Maybe mom can come stay with you for a while during the adjustment period. Keeping your family in my prayers.

    Thanks for your kind words. the blue looks a lot like denim. I think anything that reminds you of being in the country...these are some of my favorite things that I see daily in the Texas fields all aroung me. I have not decided on color of dashing. I love blues and animals and and am just a country girl.

    Your blocks are beautiful! I hope you write a nice long letter with instructions as to what you want for the other rows. I have embroidery machine so at least that is one avenue to go down. Ideas are just popping in my head now!

    MizMelly, so sorry about your Dad. That is a hard thing for sure. Your Mom will probably feel lost for a while. Does she live near you? You will be in my prayers.
