I Did Give Up

I recently did post a picture of the new replacement quilt.  Here it is with the borders on.  I did try something different and I liked it.  My grandson is enjoying the quilt and has already forgotten about the old one.  Now there are fish instead of cars in each square.

When To Give Up?

Recently, I received a quilt that I made for a grandson.  It was returned for repairs.  The question is, when is it worth the trouble to repair a child's quilt or just make a new one.  I did decide to make a new one.  I used the same pattern but all new fabrics.  I started to make repairs but saw the batting was so bad and the fabrics so faded that I had to make this decision.

I've Been Away

On September 8th I went into the hospital for a rather serious operation.  I was there for 16days.  I'm home now and getting better everyday but it is slow.  The slow recovery is hard for me.  Our blog has suffered but I hope it will once again become more exciting over the next few weeks.  The ladies have not been able to get together on our regular Monday mornings but some have been busy.  I hope to post some pictures soon.
