Time Flies!

Yes it does, and I just plod along trying not to get too fazed about it all! There has been good times and bad times - Byron (grandson age 8) had a little upset with a bowl of noodles and the microwave last Sunday week. Poor little man, he has been so brave with the burns - looks like one may need a skin graft, please God, no! Our big Children's Hospital in Perth is 60k's away so lots of travelling every second day. Fortunately we have a wonderful burns unit, we are just so lucky! DH spent last night in hospital being monitored for the Warfarin level in his body - good news, just now, it is down to a safe level so he will be coming home soon.Soooo - here is the little bit of achievement for the past week or so. I really love to applique and what nicer could one get than to combine Kim, Keiko and Kaffe! The background is so very fine, I popped some Whisperweft (I think it is!) on the back before I started.
Delish! Marguerite daisies and just look at the wonderful clear, bright fabrics. There's a real pot pourri here Kaffe, Japanese, graphic and writing - all to console me for missing the Sydney show - oh, it sounds just wonderful, the quilts must be grand from the pics I have seen. Nice to know you Girls let loose and made the most of your time together.

We have had some nasty weather here, thank goodness we've stayed safe - our letterbox was blown over that's all. Enjoy your stitching!

Oh poor Byron, I hope he heals very fast and doesn't need the skin graft. My best wishes for him and your dear hubby.
Love how your playing with your luscious fabrics, the block is gorgeous. You have some great backgrounds.

YOur Kim, Keiko, Kaffe combination is beautiful!! I'm way too conservative in what I use for background fabrics - I love this! I hope Byron is healing well - what a scare!

So sorry to hear of your family troubles. Hope Byron is coping ok - such an ordeal for a young man. Hope your DH is home by now. And I certainly hope you are doing ok too. Once again you appear to be the glue that holds everyone together.

Glad to see you have a few calm moments to stitch on your amazing blocks. Your colour choices are so superb. This will be such a happy quilt.
