I've decided this must be the back. Maybe I should sew a tail on him.
Hop over to Angie's at A Quilting Reader's Garden. She has finished her Black Bird block. I'm so in love with it. Hoping he'll fly to my house.
Big Mick hasn't been feeling well for a while. Of course, we were all worrying weather his brain tumor had returned and didn't even think about his diabetes.
He is now taking a pill, and we are hoping to get his sugar lowered. We did go to ER and spent a couple of three hours there on Tuesday. His sugar was 599 and 460ish when the ER doc took it.
This morning we had another MRI on his brain to check that out. We won't get results on that until next week. I don't normally post serious, personal information here, but I would like to request prayers for my sweetie.
I took a cute picture of him, but he thought he looked to old to post. Yes, he's still a little vain...giggle. He'll be 66 on Christmas Eve. I think he looks great!
Amy ask us to pick a quilt that we made to link to her Blogger's Quilt Festival. We all know which one I picked. Ive made lots of tops, but I've only quilted a few.
My Grandma Jessie embroidered these blocks many years ago. She passed away in 1983. You can see a closeup of her block on my banner at the top of my blog.
I made them into a quilt for my Mom's 89th birthday It's hard to see, but I did hand quilt it. This was the third quilt I've finished and the only one I've hand quilted. It was fun to learn handquilting and just make up the design as you go.
When Mom was little, Grandma Jessie called her Betsy Bug.
So I decided to name this quilt "Flowers for Betsy Bug."
This is a picture of My Mom's first look at the quilt.
My Aunt Juanita is on the left. Juanita
passed away this year at 94 and is dearly missed.
Mom will be 91 in December.
It's not my best work, but it's my most loved work. I sat on my bed for many months with my legs crossed working on this quilt. By the time I was finished, it seemed like a part of me.
Angie has a new block started on her 'Applique Thursday' at A Quilting Reader's Garden. It's another really cute one from her blog hop. So HOP over there and take a peek. Be sure and post your applique on Mr. Linky. It can be just one you are thinking about....grin.
