I'm back...again

Tim and I spent all of last week in Missouri, mostly in St. Louis.  His step-father had surgery for throat cancer in the HUGE Barnes Jewish Hospital.  The surgery took 7 hours and then he was there another 4 days after that.  We did a lot of sitting...and I have to tell you that even though I took some sewing along with me, I didn't do ANY at all.  I did read a quilting novel and looked at quite a few quilting magazines.  We're home now and Bud is also home and doing well even though he's going to have to have 6 weeks of chemo therapy.

Since I don't have anything new to show, I thought I'd post some older wall hangings that I don't think I've shown here before.

This one is a Pat Sloan design. I machine appliqued and quilted it.  (17.5 " x 44")

I hand appliqued this one and machine quilted it.  (23" x 17.5")

I bought this one at the Green Country Quilters' Guild 2010 quilt show.  It's made by Debbie Ross. I've admired her work for quite a while and when this came up for auction at the "Little Quilt Auction"  I just couldn't resist.  Now it hangs in my sewing room.  (12.25" x 13.75")

I'm so glad you all are home and that Bud is doing well....hopefully chemo won't be too hard on him.

The wall-hangings are all so beautiful. You are one talented lady my friend!
