    OMGosh, those babies are adorable! I want one. Or seven LOL

    My secret pal collects something. Since Hav4's doesn't, and I do, I know she doesn't have me.

    I didn't put anything really specific for what I "like" so I'm thinking I won't be the recipient of Battle's three boxes. Boo! LOL

    I'm currently working on several projects I just finished a quilt for a coworker's dad, who was just diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer (thyroid, lungs, spine). So I finished that over the weekend. Poor longarming, but I'm new, so...eh. It's done I like it, though. Done in his favorite colors. Pic attached.

    I have an accuquilt weekly challenge I am currently three weeks behind on, so that will be the next to be tackled.
    I'm not liking much of the color choices (I'm thinking Mystery quilts are not my thing), but I'm going to finish, because it is good practice.

    I went shopping in my stash, and have a few things already on the pile for my pal. But the one thing she really wanted wasn't there, so I am waiting on an online order to be delivered. I am hoping to have it out by the end of the week!

    Beautiful grandboys, hav4! I have 3 myself and couldn't love them more.

    Redstilettos, you did a fabulous job on that quilt.

    Secret Pal, your state is home to the single largest organism in the world, Armillaria ostoyae, a fungus that runs beneath 890 hectares (2,200 acres) of forest.

    Hav4, I didn't know that about you! Congrats on beating the Beast!

    My secret pal has a pal with no memory left in her head (me!). I got an item in the mail that I wanted to give her, started packaging up the items I went shopping in my stash for, and realized her favorite colors were Not the ones I picked out of my stash. So....now instead of mailing tomorrow, it has to wait until Saturday because we aren't going back up to the cabin (where my sewing stuff is!) until Friday night.

    LOL...wouldn't she have been surprised! Surprise! You got a package of colors you didn't ask for! Lucky you! LOLOLOL

    My friend passed on Tuesday from lung cancer. Only 55 yrs old. I am reading all the sayings on the beautiful quilt you made.
