iPhone-o-Gram! She is Home!

Jason is here. He and DH spent the afternoon golfing. There will be steaks on the grill tonight that they are in charge of.

As for me, though I am somewhat better--I think an easy bowl of oatmeal may have better luck not causing more tummy distress. I'm typing this from the comfort of my couch. :)

I do have ONE thing to share though---I finished this nearly insane block before packing up my car this morning! 9 more blocks to go!

This one is kind of a hodge podge in the center, and so is the block drawing. I tried to get close enough to the original quilt using a magnifying glass but still couldn't really tell what was what so it is what it is!

Here's hoping for a better tomorrow!



  1. Lovely block--hope you are feeling just "ducky" soon...Julierose

    Slowly your work is reeving me up to finish some of my UFO's. The problem right now is my crazy work schedule and need for sleep. I think I will take one of hand quilting projects to the beach....

    Glad you made it home safely. Hope you can come visit with us another time. Borders going onto my NI tonight! Judy M

  4. Glad you are home and almost better. Your Nearly Insane is beautiful! Are Nearly Insane, Dear Jane, and Farmer's Wife all sampler quilts? I just reliazed how similar they are. I like Nearly Insane the best. I suppose you can do any of them in whatever colors you like, but I like the original colors of the Nearly Insane. The fabrics you have chosen are perfect.Keep it going!

  5. The hodge podge is what makes those blocks so much fun!!

    Glad you made it safely and are feeling a little better. Enjoy your family and your time home.

  10. WOW that is a small block with a lot of detail!!! You are amazing! Makes me want to get back to my Farmer's Wife blocks! Thank you!

    PS... thanks for signing my books for me!! ♥

  11. Glad you are feeling a little better! A belated thank you for the class on Wednesday. I really enjoyed sewing the pineapple blossom blocks. I came home with 10 completely done and 10 in various stages of completion.

  12. Glad you got home safely! Kick back and rest a bit...

    Bonnie, would be able to give us some information on the book you are getting your patterns from for your paper pieced blocks.

  14. Hi Bonnie, glad you are on the mend. Having recently experienced the same, I know how debilitating it is. And still you manage to carry on! Love the block. I just bought the book because of you. These authors ought to give you commission for advertising. You bring them to life.

  15. Bonnie, every time I see that gorgeous machine of yours it makes me want one!! It's just so darn cute!
    Actually, I'm trying to find fairly inexpensive machines for my granddaughters (ages 8 and 10) to learn on. But I don't want them to be uber-cheapies that are constantly having tension issues. I'm spoiled by computerized machines, and my patience would be short with one that didn't play nice!
    Any of your great group have any suggestions? I see a lot of Singers, but get turned off by the reviews. There are some Brother machines that aren't too high price. ????
    I'll prob. let the girls take them when they get older. So I want the machine to be able to sew all the basics. No embroidery machine stuff necessary. I haven't figured all that out on mine yet!
