    DianaLynn, thanks for your comment. It certainly sounds like you are doing well. I'd be thrilled if my husband wanted to quilt or something similar. He has weakness on his right side. You've given me an idea; perhaps I can encourage him to make a quilt. Using scissors would be great therapy. Wow, a 99-yr. old grandmother. You have your hands full. I'm surprised you have time for quilting. I know what you mean though about loving it. Keep up the good work, and thanks.

    Congrats on being able to get back to quilting. I'm sorry about your husband. I am a stroke survivor. In 1999 I had 3 strokes. It takes a lot to care for a stroke patient. Quilting is a big challenge for me. Especially cutting, since my left side is weak and only assists and sometimes not in a good way. But I loved quilting and refused to give it up completely. Now I'm a caregiver for my 99 year old grandmother who taught me to quilt. Happy Quilting!!!

    I can't wait to fmq again. I want to get good at this. It is such an art form. I'm torn though because I really love hand quilting too. Woe is us--all these decisions.

    Whatever you do, don't get discouraged. There were times I thought of giving up because my stitches just weren't what I thought they should be. Once it is finished though and complete, the texture is amazing.

    I love my leather thimbles and I use Roxanne needles #11 betweens. I use hand quilting thread and do not have a problem threading the needles.

    Thanks Judith. Ryan is such a ham. She certainly adds to the challenge, but in a way I wouldn't want to be without.

    I love your yellow quilt. It is so happy and cheerful. Love the fabrics. And your little "model" is super duper cute and doing a good job selling your quilty.

    Thanks. I'm really glad to hear your comment. I'm learning that most people simply hate yellow. I can't understand it. I love waking up to the look of sunshine.

    Thanks Mona. I absolutely love pink. Making this was great fun, but I couldn't have done it without Ryan's help, not to mention her three sisters. I quilt on my lap, so someone was always in it, under it, or on it.

    Thanks Judith. I love them too. A blue one would be marvelous. For some reason I am really drawn to monochromatic quilts. Log cabin is one of my favorites too. I enjoyed every aspect of making this one and can't wait to start on the next. Right now all I know is that it will be yellow. Good luck with all your endeavors in 2012. Oh, BTW, Ryan thanks you too.
