    Second block, bottom row. Usually done scrappy, half square triangles, and each square has a light side and dark side. You can find it on Quilters Cache....I guess it was called "depression" because it can be made with scraps

    Difergie, this is wonderful! So many parts to love! I'm a big depression block fan, had and adored scotties and numerous cats. Love the center and the stars too. But it's the paw prints that really kick it into high gear for me. Beautiful. Congratulations on a fabulous original piece!

    Shoot, I almost missed the outhouse. Love the whimsy!

DONE, I say. I needed one block to complete it and my partner this month asked for a depression block, and heck if you make one of those, you might as well make two. One for her and one for me! I am sure some of you may have made one of these blocks. Check, check, check, off my list. Smiley face.....

    For those of you with "free time"- ha!- there is a one day mystery quilt on About Quilting.com.
    I cut my pieces and I do not think the yardage is accurate, but I'll give it a try. I loved watching football at Syracuse U.,
    but the reports of brain trauma diminish my pleasure.

    I was able to hobble down the stairs today and made my blocks for lovngrandma. Felt good to be in the sewing room for the first time in two weeks

    I do have a balance problem but this time I didn't fall. We went on vacation to Mexico and my feet were killing me, I was walking funny trying stay off my heels and fractured two bones in the top of the foot. Walked on foot for 4 days. X-ray showed Plantar Faciitis, a bone spur and the two fractures. With the boot it is ok to hobble around on main floor but sewing room is in basement and we don't have a railing going down there. To be truthful the Plantar Faciitis hurts worse then the breaks. Going to see the foot specialist Tuesday.

    Oh boy, I've had those before! I went through all the shots, etc and nothing helped...You'll laugh at this, but a chiropractor is the one that healed mine! He used little electrodes on my heels and after a few treatments, they went away! I have a chiro now that has worked on my DD's and she said she can't believe how good it feels to be able to walk without 'limping'. Sure hope you can find some relief soon... OH, and the Dr told my DD to soak her foot in Epsom Salts, then rub her heel with cider vinegar, couple times a day, especially before bed..it's worked..;o)

    Still looking for clarification from my partner, Marilyn43. Trying to do the Superbowl Mystery Quilt. Seems like I did not read the directions well enough. Hmmmm....

    Thanks Owensew, walking funny also threw my hip and back out. At the lake I have a great chiropractor. It's a small town and they have 4 different clinics. Live here in the big city and have tried 4 or 5 different ones but none I felt comfortable with. Need the fractures to heal b4 I worry about the Plantar Fasciitis. Guess I'm not aging gracefully

    Good day to everyone. Hope all had a nice weekend. We dealt with winter weather all weekend and it's still going on. I don't know if I'm going crazy or what but I've sure mixed a couple of my swap partners up. Hopefully I got it down right now. I think I'll blame it on cabin fever, it's been so long since I've been out of this town because of the winter.
    Terriamn how awful for you to get around. That is so very painful. You take care my dear. I've had a couple of days trying to rearrange my sewing room and to organize fabric. Just is not an easy task when you don't have storage. I wish all a great week and lots of great quilting. Marilyn43

    Sunrise450, I'm so relieved you finally got the block and also that you like it. I think the reason for it taking longer than usual was the blizzard. I know we didn't get mail for 2 days.
