    SBG, I'll send you tracking when I've got it in the mail.

    Givio, this turned out great.

    Rebaquilts, you and your family are in my prayers.

    My dad tested positive for covid yesterday, he did not have the criteria to be admitted to the small town hospital so they sent him back home with medications, hospital bed and wheelchair.

    Rebecca, It's a difficult time for you, especially as you are just are recovering yourself from covid... and now your father and step mother have it too. I sat with my dying father (cancer) and it was a comfort to know where he was going and that we would meet again. I hope you and your father have comfort and peace too.

    IceBlossom, I hope you find the way to repair the relationship with your mother while there is still time.

    Mona, There are so many contact restriction guidelines... I hope you are able to be a source of strength and encouragement to your father and that he gets well soon.

    ...Such troubles! ...Be well one and all! ...Make sure your loved ones know they are loved.

    Happy Thanksgiving all! Please take some time to say aloud 10 or more things you are thankful for. :-) We are so blessed, and it's good to be grateful for those blessings and take the time to think about them.

    We had a great time at my daughter’s for Thanksgiving today. My little granddaughter is so precious and now that she is walking she’s into everything. I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well.

    Default Birdie Flying home

    Hi all, thanks for the thoughts and prayers. My dad Fred Breitkreuz, passed on Tuesday from COVID. Since my step mom has COVID, and I had recovered, they allowed me into the ICU to be with him, only one visitor allowed. I never thought I would say I am glad I got COVID until now. God’s mercy is apparent even in illness. I was able to pray with my dad at his passing, just as I did for my mom. The key to beating COVID is extreme rest—reduce lung respiration. COVID feeds on lung oxygen so if you practice extreme rest, you have a chance of beating it. This knowledge came too late for my dad as he went walking and climbing stairs and went downhill in only 1/2 hour. When I tried to start doing things like housework and walking, I immediately experienced extreme shortness of breath. Tell everyone you know—give yourself a blank check to watch every rerun you want and take naps :-)

    Attached are the pics of Iceblossom’s top, it’s going home finally on Monday. Iceblossom has some basket blocks she will be using for the last border, so I knew no more baskets. I liked Sewbiz’s y-seams, so when I found the rosebud block with y-seams from the 30’s Kansas City Star book, I resized them and used them, as I think they coordinate well with the basket flowers and her prior border. Although I love to use some leftover fabric in my borders to tie in the rest of the quilt, this time I had to make the blocks scrappy as the leftover fabric pieces weren’t big enough for the longer triangle points in the pattern. I tried to match Sewbiz’s in-between triangles, but the leaves of the rosebuds just got lost and it didn’t look good, so I ripped off the border and added the floral blue strip to coordinate with the arrow-blue color in the prior round.

    Iceblossom likes World of Warcraft, so I decided to appliqué WOW medieval houses in the corner blocks, a nod to the darker brown in the other rounds, the arrow/pine trees/flying geese reminded me of Bavaria, so I tried to make the architecture “heavy” with stone foundations. I thought about an entire border but I felt it would be too lopsided and bottom heavy.

    Thanks so much for your patience, Iceblossom. Hugs all.
