 I am doing this spur of the moment blog post because if I wait till later, I will never get it done.   So many times I have thought I should do a blog post, but for various reasons decided to wait till later, till a better time.  Only by then I am out energy, out of the mood or something.

It is absolutely wonderful living here where I can see the kids and see Lorelei every so often.  Can you believe I will be taking her to Driver's Ed this summer?  Where has the time gone.  She will also have marching band practice this summer, and is in drumline now, so she does not have a lot of free time.

I ordered the stuff to build a ramp for Roger....when we go to dr. or anywhere, he uses a wheel chair.  Anyway, I ordered the parts and waited and waited for them to come.  By the time they come, Jeremy was working 7 days a week for the most part, and long days at that.  Finally he had Thanksgiving weekend, and he and one of his buddies put it in for us.  Before that, Roger was struggling to get down the steps.  (In the house he uses walker.)

I don't get a lot of sewing done, but I am still working on the little 4 inch unfinished blocks...

I have almost 400 of them made will take around 600 to make a bed quilt.    I am not sure I will ever get that many made.  Remember, each one will only be 3 1/2 inches when sewn into a quilt so it will take a LOT.

This is a finish of a sort.  It is quilted, both machine and hand quilting.  It needs more quilting though, but not sure I am going to do it.  It is just to hang on the wall and be pretty.  I wish you could see the sashing/border is not as dark as it shows in the photo.  

This is just a little update.  I wish I could get back in the habit of posting more but there never seems to be much time.
