    I tried to draw a Grandmothers Flower Garden in EQ this is the best I could do. I talked with my friend Rdupuis Sunday morning (he is still in REHAB)...and told him I would send some 3x3 inch autumn colored squares for a GFG project with golden-yellow centers. I also printed out a bunch of 1 1/4 inch sided paper hexagons to go with them. I have to get busy and handwash and iron some fabrics...

    Sorry I forgot to mention that this is RDupuis, check out his quilts on the topics on his profile.... he didnt start quilting until he was in his 80s, and has such a marvelous group of pictures for the short time he has been makingquilts....

    (It just happens i am sending autumn colors because its such a broad spectrum includes about every color)... some are sending other colors to his Rehab place with their card....

    Alittle update about Dick....Our Guy Quilter With The Broken Hip

    I spoke to him last night and he is doing somewhat better....

    yet to start rehab, but hopefully by friday, after the xrays of his re-fracture hip, he will be able to start some therapy.

    He was just tickled to get well wish card from a member from the QB, you could hear it in his voice over the phone.
    He was totally surprised by this.

    (((Connie))))) address is on the way... I talked to him Thursday night after dinnertime and he is doing well, some local sewing person came to visit with him... and one of his old friends called him, who, through lack of internet contact at the Rehab Facility... they had lost connections.
    He said that he made a baby dress with some *fine thread* a lady brought to him, and its just gorgeous, and they took pictures of it and when he gets back to Arkansas and can get on the Board... he will have pictures to show.
    My package is awaiting the FedEx truck to get its little self to his address and he will have the enjoyment of unpacking the box with little goodies in it.. hehehehehe Sheeps
