    I am sure Sharon would welcome additional blocks. She has been embroidering the ones she got that were written in pen, and someday she will have the time to sew them together. Until then, there is no reason she can't get more in the mail!

    As for an update, Roy has good and bad days, but Sharon is prepared to let go. She is enjoying what time they have left together and has a good attitude.
    Roy sleeps a lot, and the nurses tell her that is a sign he is "shutting down."

    She really appreciates all your thoughts, prayers and quilt blocks!

    Hi Quiltmaker and Everyone:
    Last week I sent MimiSharon a PM and she replied that "it made her day" to receive my message so I was really glad I sent it. I didn't know if she'd be up to e-mails from strangers. Like Elle from Spain said, I got choked up hearing about Roy this morning. I just can't even imagine how horribly hard it would be if something happened to my wonderful DH. Hugs and prayers to Mimi, Roy and their family.

    Well, thank you, Sew N Snow!

    I am glad that there is new interest in this project for Sharon and Roy. It seems like such a small thing to do. I would rather that I lived near her and could bring casseroles or help with housecleaning, and let her have some time away from the house to breathe.

    Thank you everyone who has participated and who will be sending blocks her way!

    Never let it be said that I let anything beat me, but this nearly did. Two went out the window. This was mainly due to the embroidery as I was trying out a new machine. However I had a rest from it and then tried again and here is the result. I will send it tomorrow....

    Butterfly: Your block is gorgeous. Your embroidery work looks lovely and I'm sure MimiSharon is going to love the block. I'm anxious to see her quilt when she gets all the blocks together. I'm sure it's going to be stunning. Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you all for your comments, that machine was what they called an A Grade and I got it for 400 Pounds less than the going price which is 1,200 Pounds. Sory donīt know $ price. It had been fully refurbished and serviced and delivery was free to Spain UPS, They said it had be bought and returned as now wanted, refurbished for sale again. Couldnībelieve it. Got it from Ebay. Brother Innovis 1200. I am very pleased with it. :D :D Really recommend the shop if anyone is interested.

    Never to late, I've been embroidering on the ones that didn't put anything on their blocks. I've put the name, the sign on name (when I had it) and the town/state it came from. I cry a lot, they are each and every one so beautiful. I have two to finish the embroidery on and then I'm going to pin them together and take pictures.

    If I tell you that the few minutes I've had to embroider at night or early mornings has kept me sane, you won't really believe me, but it's so very true. The last few months have been some of the hardest of my life but some of the most rewarding in that I still have him with me.

    Even if I get the quilt put together sometime soon, I'd love to quilt some shams to go with it, wouldn't that be gorgeous? So uplifting for me!

    Love y'all!!!

    Cheers!
