    Bonnet Girls - 13th in Series - Tom and Wendy

    Hi, Just finished this block...had a lot going on today, and didn't know if I would get to sew or not. A friend had a horrible boating accident here on the river, and lost his life....Kitchen drain stopped up...so, not been a very good day..However, did finally get to make a block..Hope you like it.

    Beautiful, as usual! I'm so sorry to hear your day has been so crummy. Would a hug help?

    They look like illustrations from an old-fashioned book!

    Sorry about your friend dying.

    Drain can be fixed.

    I love your blocks. Sorry about your friend. I lost a great friend and previous boss to lung cancer this week so I can feel your pain. I started to write and letter and was remember the good things, it helped. How many blocks in this series?

    You need a standing ovation with all the work you are putting into this project.
    So nice to look at.
    Can't wait to see them all together.

    So sorry to hear about your friend. Maybe making quilt blocks will help a little to keep your mind off of it. The block is beautiful. You do such great work.
