I have not blogged for a while because my husband had hip surgery recently.  The trips to and from the hospital took all my time for a while.  He is now home and getting better every day.

I haven't had time to sew or even think much about sewing, but I can see a light at the end of that tunnel.  I'm inspired to make an Orange Peel quilt using precuts and a super simple technique featured at Missouri Star as their latest tutorial.

Dottie and Olive were boarded with our vet for several days and they are getting back in the routine of the house again.  They missed Jeff terribly while he was away. 

All is well once again in our little corner of Missouri.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ~~  Barb


  1. I love that quilt, I just watched the tutorial. I used to buy the fabric from America buy our pre import tax allowance has been dropped and with the post office handling charge the cost is prohibitive. We do not have such a wonderful range of fabric collections and pre cuts in the UK. Glad to hear that all is getting back to normal now. Pets always suffer when one of their people are away, they do not understand and dislike change.

  2. I still have the two of you (along with Christina and your friends) on my prayer list. I do believe my right hip is expressing empathy for Jeff though. Tell him to get up and 'running' so I can feel a bit better, too.
