Home, Sweet Home

I'm home.
Arrived back Sunday evening and after all the tests and scans it is agreed that Mom will take treatment here in Tulsa but will go back to Houston for progress follow ups. 
I left leaving MD Anderson very impress with the facilities, staff and the efficiency. I feel my Mom received the best care while there.

Now that I'm home I have been getting back into a routine, funny how I missed that.  I don't live an exciting life, (it's a good life) but I did missed it.

I just have to get back (long time gone) in the habit of writing.

While gone I did get another baby blanket crochet, spent a lot of time in waiting rooms.
Turned out sweet and now I need to find a baby to give it to. 

 And did start another one. 

My Mom was making this pattern and thought it was so pretty.

Since I didn't take a sewing machine with me I just had to have something to sew. Seeing that I have many things started and didn't want to duplicate one of them decided to start a quilt I've been wanting to do for a while but had put it off.

It is an English paper piecing pattern 

Sue Garman: A Hex on Blog Time Sneaking Up on Me!:    

It's an old layout but I believe this one is from the late Sue Garman.

So one day while in Houston I went around to a few quilt shops looking for a kit I could do 

and with not finding one I went ahead and purchased some hexies and charm packs. 

Got a good start and to took only a couple tries to get the hang of it.  Been awhile since I have done EPP.

Did this one with 1/4" hexies I think 7 years ago. Measured out the same as a sheet of paper, 8 1/2" by 11"
Now it's framed and hangs in my bathroom.

Now that I'm home I'm going to look for fabric in my stash to go along with the charm packs.

I did work some on the embroidery I took.

Still have so much more to do, this is the largest block with the most stitchery to do. I will keep plugging along.


  1. hope everything goes well for your Mum.....always a worry when family are sick.........great to have a project to pick up and go with..........

  2. love all your hexies, glad your mom is getting good care

  3. So sorry to hear about your Mom, hope all goes well with her. Some great projects, I loved the crochet blankets.

  4. Glad that your Mom now has a treatment plan. Hope it goes really well. A very pretty baby blanket and I really like the second one you've started.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
