While it’s not much, it is a start! My friend, Denise, has a swap going on that involves appliqued cupcakes! How fun is that? I’m signed up and still trembling at the thought of having to turn out acceptible blocks. You know that this necessitated purchasing white tone on tones….something I don’t normally work with. I like the cream tone on tones…and solid Kona white! She’s making me work outside my comfortable little box.
I’ve cut out enough backgrounds, cupcake bottoms and icing tops to do a swap set. Now, I have new evening handwork.
- Yardage purchased this week – 6.25 yds
- Yardage used this week – 1 yds
- Year to date purchased – 6.25 yds

I’m going to have to swing into high gear to meet this year’s goals. JudyL is going to reposess my membership in her UFO group, lol…and I won’t have enough quilts to fill another box for Denise (Mission of Hope Coordinator). I will have to get Wanda over here for another weekend of quilting. She can load and quilt on her own!!! I could teach Ernie how to load quilts…he knows how to run the machine. May have to if I don’t get more done and soon :-)
Things are a little slow again due to the cancer issues. I’m using a cane to get around and the sideways moving along the frame hurts. I told Ernie that I feel like the chemo medication is a cancer fertilizer. Seems like I’ve gotten worse since I began taking it. We’ll address that with the oncologist in a couple of days. We need some positive results.
For now, I’m happy to be sewing on anything!
