First, let me apologize for being off blogger for so long -- almost 2 1/2 weeks! Things were very hectic around here with Missy being sick and then Laura had surgery. Life is settling back down now and getting back to normal [whatever 'normal']. Thank you for being patient with me.
Have you joined the Bow Tie A Day group over on FB? The idea is no stress, no worries, just make ONE block per day and at the end of summer -- TaDah! -- you'll have enough blocks to make a quilt. Neat, huh? Check it out; it is fun. There is still time to join in and catch up. Today is only day 21. I have several blocks to go to catch up with the others, but I'm not worried about it -- I just plan on making placemats with mine.

Today was spent prepping 40 Siggy blocks. All the centers are finished. Tomorrow I'll sew on the setting triangles.
My plan is to keep several Siggies ready, so I can mail one right back just as soon as I receive one. Several  Siggies have arrived recently. They are a lot of fun. One of these days I'll get them sewn into a quilt! lol

Missy is doing much better. Here she is resting, which is what she does most of the time these days. But her spirits have improved a lot. She is even "perky" at times. Thank you everyone for the kind words and emails you've sent -- it's nice to know we weren't alone while battling her illness. She will be on a special diet the rest of her life, but if love has anything to do with it, she will be happy!

Thank you for stopping by. . . I'll try to post more pictures next time.  Meanwhile, I hope where ever you are that you have the time and inclination to make something that pleases you or someone you love. . . .

Hi Cyn,
I am glad Missy is feeling better! And I am surprised that you are still collection siggies, you must have a whole bunch of them by now.
Good ludk in catching up with the bow ties, it is a nice plan to make enough blocks for a whole quilt during summer.

Glad you, Laura and Missy are better!!!!
