Joie de Vivre Returning!

There's a light at the end of the tunnel - only one more week to go and then, fingers crossed, my sling comes off. Here's a few more blocks I have found from GT&SB and I know there is another cutie hiding somewhere ...


And how about this? Another block partly prepared - not a great achievement, but still a little progress!

I've had two lovely days out and about - odds and ends on Monday, our State Guild on Tuesday and Secret Quilters in the evening. Lovely to get with all the girls again! Then when I arrived home Battle Hymn had just started - DH enjoys Fox Classics - now usually I pooh-pooh them! - watched it all the way through and felt like I was watching a chick-flick - a few little tears and nobody, nobody can convince me Rock Hudson was not heterosexual - he must have acquired Aids from a blood transfusion - such a beautiful, sensitive, gentle man, lol! - sorry you young ones, out of your league and I so rarely reminisce! For all Aussie fans of Patrick Swayze, North and South starts on Foxtel next week , my all time favourite I-Wish Man - loved the miniseries, too!

Oh, dear not often I ramble - love these little Darlings and think maybe I can substitute a block in GT&SB - can I manage a start?

Lastly for today - I have been managing a little Perle quilting on Dino - he must be happy that a finish is not too far away!
I'm off now!

I must have missed your post somewhere about you still got a sling on? You seemed to be doing well with it though, but it will be nice to have it off, right? This quilt is such a happy looking colour, I love it - Hugs Nat

I love the dinosaur! Great colours.

Ha ha! My mother still refuses to believe that Rock Hudson was gay!

Glad to see you have been doing a little bit of sewing and sound a lot happier. Good luck with the sling removal next week. I love those blocks from your GTASB - the fabrics are wonderful and I am fascinated with the little apple core quilts I have seen in blogland. I am looking forward to watching your progress with it.

Dino is looking quite smug there - probably because he knows the end is near.

Hey, good luck with the arm/shoulder - don't overdo it!
