Happy, Sad

Here is the Phebe center as it is today. I finally finished all the oak leaves and acorns! The red diamond corners are giving me problems though and I'm still trying to figure out how to applique them so the points are actually in the corners.

I know some of you haven't seen what a finished Phebe quilt looks like so here is a scanned image. As you can see I have a little work ahead of me. I am so glad that the Ohio Stars are finished and waiting!

I will probably not be posting regularly for awhile. Hospice has been called in to care for my mother. I am taking Phebe along to do what handwork is left while I sit with her. Quilting can be a great comfort.

Take care, Mayleen

More to come soon!

Phebe progress! I've been concentrating on Phebe because she needs to go to the machine quilter soon. I've finished the 80 Ohio Stars and have various borders in different stages. Lots more to do but its exciting to see parts of it come together!  

Meanwhile, Love Entwined must wait its turn. I probably will not be able to do much work on it until late September which will make me at least 2 months behind. I'm hoping it doesn't become a UFO.

Kansas has received quite a bit of rain and some areas are flooding. So far, the worst thing that's happened at our house is a roof leak and the roofers will be coming to fix it soon.
