Little by Little

We’ve had the yuck at our house. Fortunately I didn’t get it. (Knock on wood.) But I’ve been playing nurse for the past few days. In an attempt to make DD feel better and get her mind off not feeling well, we made these heart shaped crayons from the bag of broken crayons she has. Thank you Joanna for this great idea. When she was feeling a little better I helped her make a new pillow case. Didn’t she do a beautiful job?

Thankfully she is better today and I was able to have my Happy Chemo Sew In. We’ve added two more quilts to the Happy Chemo Quiltometer. Another top just needs to be enveloped so Rella, my dear friend below who is ironing a row for another top, can tie it. Thank you Rella.

Here is Diane cutting foundation blocks for our next quilts. Shelly is taking a break after finishing the previously mentioned top.

Here are the blocks that were made last Saturday at the Happy Chemo Sew In at Quilter’s Haven. We got the rows sewn together today and Marilyn took it home to finish up. Thank you Marilyn!

Little by little the quiltometer climbs.

    Cute crayons, what a neat idea! Sorry everyone's been sick at your place, we've been through it too – and I didn't get it as bad as everyone else too, must be a mom thing, lol! Love the pillowcase and chemo quilt!

    The crayons are cute. Hope the sickness leaves your house quickly. That is a really pretty quilt you guys are making.

    Hope everyone is feeling better and you don't get it! The bottom quilt makes a great donation quilt — easy as a rail fence, but with added interest. I really like it!

    I love that quilt! The crayon idea is wonderful. I am a teacher and have a rubbermaid tote full of broken crayons. I need to check out that blog entry.

    Stay healthy, Em. Those are nasty bugs this year.

    Those heart crayons are adorable!! Great idea.

    I know that a new pillowcase has to make someone feel better, Nice job too.
