For Your Enjoyment ----

Because I am not home this morning!

I have a thoughtful little eye-candy gift from Martine!

She writes:

Dear Bonnie,
I hope that you are recovering well from your colonoscopy and are coming out with a clean report.
Here is the link to a "bed turning" tour of beautiful antique quilts from the private collection of Jean S. Lyle that you may enjoy. Few scrappy quilts but a fantastic non traditional Ocean waves and each of them true beauties.

I take the occasion to thank you for all you give to us, your blog followers and Quilt-Cam viewers. I have not yet started on one scrappy quilt but I am slowly organizing my scraps to start leaders and enders in a near future.



Best regards.
Martine from France




Did she REALLY say “Coming out with a CLEAN REPORT?!”

Oh yes, at least as far as I know….I’m cleaner inside than I’ve been my whole life! LOL!!

See you on the other side of my sleep, folks ---I’m hoping these quilts will continue to play through my head while I enjoy a long nap!

And a cheeseburger!

Hope you get that clear report. I have mine coming up next month and it's the double whammy! AT least we will know. Enjoy the cheeseburger and the nap. Those anaesthetics can really knock you around.

Thank you Bonnie for the WONDERFUL bed turning clip. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope you have a good report and enjoy that cheeseburger on the way home. Eat it slow. Hugs girl.

Thank you, Bonnie, for that wonderful video clip---loved the grandmothers garden (maker unknown: we need to label our quilts). Hoping that you have a great report so we can get back to Quiltcam!

Bonnie, Good luck with your colonoscopy!! Enjoy your cheeseburger. Thanks for all the wonderful mysteries and patterns.

Debbie Lou said...

Thanks so much for sharing the bed turning. That was fun! Good thoughts and wishes for your procedure today.

thinking of you...and waiting patiently for you to feel well enough to cam back to us, lol

Stacey said...

After seeing that nice bed turning video, it reminds me that we all need to label our quilts. You never know where they'll end up or who will look at them long after we are gone. I hope you get a "clean bill of health" Bonnie. Thank you for all the inspiration that you provide to all of us..

Thanks so much for sharing the bed turning. It was wonderful.

Carolyn Sullivan said...

How great was that! Not the procedure, the bed turning! I can't wait for April when the International Quilt Fesival comes to Cincinnati!
Let us know you have a clean report! LOL Also when I have been put to sleep, I'm not really coherant for 24+ hrs. Said things, made calls that I don't remember!

Brigitte said...

Hi Bonnie, best wishes for your not so funny "date" today. Hope you are enjoying the cheeseburger meanwhile. Thanks for sharing this wonderful quiltshow, amazing quilts!
Hugs Brigitte

Hi Bonnie! hope your procedure goes smoothly... fyi-I got a full report complete with colored photos from mine! ...not exactly the sort of thing that will ever inspire a quilt, tho...
fyi - don't go shopping for a couple of days - I'm still looking for the stuff I bought the week after my procedure last summer....mo idea where it got squirreled away... just sayin'

Margaret said...

Thinking of you Bonnie, and saying a wee prayer for a positive (clear) outcome. I don't know about the rest of Canada, but my Alberta doc doesn't require a colonoscopy over 50 unless a) a -- ahem -- fecal sample comes back with occult blood; and/or b) there's a family history of colo-rectal cancer. So...I empathize with you but am glad to be 'oscopy-free' for the time being (and I'm 60).

Enjoy your cheeseburger! And fries! And your fave fizzy drink!

AllyJo said...

I laughed when she said "clean" report. OMGosh, this video took my breath away. I wish I could see the quilting close up. I'm so glad you shared the eye candy. It made my day. Feel better. ((hug))

Janet said...

What an AMAZING video!! Fabulous quilts!! Thanks so much for this :0) I hope everything goes well for you today.

Jan Duffy said...

Too funny ! Hope your procedure goes well.

Ooooh! Delicious eye candy in that video. The Baby Baskets are fantastic. I'm thinking I need to figure out how to make that my next L&E project after I stitch up all the spools I've got cut out. Those little baskets are adorable and made such a beautiful quilt! Thanks for sharing the video.

bunbear said...

Hope you got a good report! Doc wants me to get one and I'm just not too thrilled at the prospect. ugh.

Saska said...

Have a good nap. Can't say anything about the other test...because I've never had it done. Figure you'll recover pretty quick. Sounds like cuddle with a furry friend time to me!

gmp said...

Amazing collection of quilts in the video. One prettier that the other!

Muv said...

Fab video Bonnie.

I'm completely in love with the first quilt. Great video for you to watch time and time again when you wake up.

Love,
Muv

Sandra B said...

Hope you recover quickly from the 'procedure'. Enjoy that cheeseburger. Wow wow wow! That bedturning video was utterly amazing. I wish I could have seen the quilting up close, but they were all magnificent in their own way. That EPP half square triangle quilt was breathtaking. And they were all so huge!

Joyce said...

Hi Bonnie, I am so glad things went well for you. Enjoy you rest and your coconut drinks. Joyce from MD.

Lee said...

Beautiful quilts! and I'm as much in love with that bed - it's like the ones from my childhood in the 50s.

Material Girl said...

Enjoyed the Bed Turning, would have been incredible to see them up close enough to see the quilting and all the hard work that went into them there were some beauties there for sure.
So far I haven't had to have this test neither, here in Sask. we get an at home test kit that we have to do every year and as Margaret said if everything is good, then we don't have to go through all you went through. I'm 56 so far so good in that area... lol
Take care and thanks for all you do for us quilters Bonnie, hope you are recovering nicely and feeling better tomorrow. Take care.

Ms MoomMist said...

Great Bed Turning. And so happy your test was clean. I was 60 before I had my first colonoscopy, but wasn't so lucky, so please Ladies, do get yours and enjoy the day of napping... Merry Christmas!

Carla said...

Love it. LOL coming out clean. After my procedure last year the hubby took me to blackened pea and then home where I slept the rest of the da..
