Flowers, Japanese Block, Repro Pattern!

It's a wonderful way to start a week - I guess it will be another busy one with Ed slowly improving and hospital trips! Aren't I the luckiest girl in the world - dear friend in Brisbane, Christine of Once Upon A Quilt ... had these delivered to me in West Aussie over the weekend - Christine, you are one of my very dearest friends and love goes to you and yours - I cherish every bit of brightness and happiness!

Dear Cathy of Cabbage Quilts showed similar blocks on her blog - she said I could show if I had a try so I did between 12:00 - 2:00 this morning! This is a hard one to get in your mind 'Setsuko Inagana' - a Japanese block - busy, yes, yes, I know but I love - wouldn't it be lovely if I could get one done a day - thanks for the inspiration Cathy - Great Girl!

Recently purchased at our State Quilt Show - me looking at repros again, lol! Quite a stunning quilt in life - of course not enough colour for me, but I have ideas! Do you like, Kathie of Inspired by Antique Quilts !
I have a few little chores then off to the hospital in the rain - we are blessed at last to have the rain- an hour driving each way, not nice!

Happy Day!

From Lurline!

To all my gorgeous friends - so sorry I haven't replied to your comments on last post - we still have Ed with us!

A little brief coverage for those who care - Ed had major bowel/bladder surgery 4/5 and a post-operative heart attack while in ICU - I brought him home 13/5 - he was good, sort of, and then I rushed him to hospital 15/5 where he had another heart attack and a stroke paralysing his left side. He is still in critical heart care making a good recovery from the stroke, slowly but surely and it is day by daying it!

My 4 children are all with me and still I cannot cope - I'm exhausted and cry all the time - now please don't feel sorry for me that is not meant that way it is just telling you the change in me. One of my dearest long-time friends on earth Christine from Once Upon a Quilt .... I send you all my thanks and love - I daren't name any more friends you are all so precious - one day I will blog with happiness - I hope it is soon!

It Makes My Heart Happy!

We all know Ayumi of Pink Penguin - this is one of her pot holders - lots of fun! This is my dear Ed who is fighting for life - he's had surgery, 2 heart attacks and a stroke at 71.

I am not brave - my heart is broken! I don't like to write unhappy words - I must still need Blogland - thank you and love to you all!
