    Oh Robin, I am so happy to hear you are loving the quilt made by Lisalisa...isn't it the sweetest little thing you ever saw? It has brought so much love and happiness since it hit my mailbox...I took it over to show my mother (she is 95 and in Hospice) and she asked me to let it stay overnight so she could show her friends and they all just adored it. Lisa is right..it has taken on a personality all its own....just a little piece of LOVE. Please hold on to it as long as you need it. Wishing you good health.

    Oh and you are right about Mr. Peach! He is HANDSOME and he knows it!! He is one loved and spoiled rotten cat!

    Hi Nancy,
    I've got fabric and an idea and am planning on starting this week. Hope you are enjoying Houston. My DH said it is really hot and muggy there most of the time. Is this true?

    Sent off my little quilt to Ms Grace today with some little goodies for her to enjoy. Had a lot of fun working of this little red/white/blue quilt and planning on a bigger version for 'ME' very soon.

    So glad to see how Lisalisa and Sharon's loving quilt brought joy to your heart Robin! Praying for you that your next stage of chemo isn't as hard on you as this last one was. 9 days and 11 pounds of heck...you are a trooper for sure!

    Sure would like to see pictures of Nina and Zoey.

    Cogito - Ooftah Mag - yup! That is what my Nana often said. Oh how I miss her.

    Sharon...Two Silkies! That must have been fun, or crazy, or probably both. Our Penny is feisty as the dickens and extremely smart. I can imagine two were double trouble!

    Krystyna, have YOU surfaced from under all those veils? LOL. You must be quite sewn out by now.
    Ugh! Fish hook through the finger... I would have passed out for sure. My daughter's friend told me something very interesting yesterday. When she was young she got a fish hook caught in the skin right under her eye. Her aunt is Native American and after they got the hook out, her aunt took the lining out from the inside of an eggshell and applied it over the wound, like a natural bandaid. It healed up beautifully.

    My finger is going to be fine, thanks everyone! I had it in hot water most of yesterday as we were helping my daughter clean her house. I gave up trying to keep it dry and just kept it bound tightly so it wouldn't start bleeding again.

    My friend Lynn (sewbeadit) found the perfect fabric for the back of your mini quilt Krystyna....I'm so excited about it. The quilt is coming along well!

    Sorry I've been MIA. Helping son with his sous chef resume and just all sorts of paperwork that I don't feel like doing. And, of course, a mountain of veils! Hoping to finish the borders on your little quilt, quilt and bind it and then into the wash it goes and we'll see what happens!

    Lara having 2 silkes was delightful! They lived 16+years and were busy girls. We rescued them when they were 6 yrs old. Kate came from a home where the kids grew up and the mom worked all day. Angel was from a loving home but when the baby arrived he was alergic to dogs. Katie was bossy and Angel was just pure sweetness. I really miss them but my DIL is alergic so it keeps me from getting another. Before Kate and Angel we had Roxy...she was also rescued and she was our most favorite...she lived only 10 years..she was given too large a rabies vac. and she died. We were heartbroken..that is when we got the 2 girls. they raised my precious, Mr. Peach when I found him in the park at about 5 wks old...guess that is why he is so crazy..he isn't sure if he is a dog or what he is..he just knows he HATES other cats!

    Sharon that is so tragic about your little dog Roxy. Who would ever think that could happen. I can well understand your heartbreak.
    You were really into rescue - that is wonderful! Our last three dogs are rescues from very sad circumstances. And our oldest, Piper, raised a newborn kitten found under the floorboards of a demolished house after the construction crew found the mother nearby deceased. He is now my SIL's cat Jake and he too thinks he is a dog. Mr Peach is a very handsome poochy cat.

    Krystyna, i hope Blaze gets a great new chef's position!

    Here is a pic of Piper raising Jake:

    Speaking of cats and dogs, we had an Irish Setter named Rusty. (Our son named her) And we also had a small grey and white kitten. One day my daughter called me at work and said "Mom! Rusty is nursing the kitten!" I replied "Well, if Rusty doesn't mind, neither do I. You shouldn't be calling me at work! Bye!"

    Kathy (mamskeeto), your little quilt is done. But I like it so much I am keeping it for another week to bring it for show and tell before I mail it to you. Do you want to see a pic now or do you want to be surprised?
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
