Spring is Here

By this weekend and it will be in the 70's - 80's
and I'm ready for it. Been cleaning up flower beds and yesterday I picked up some zinnia seeds to plant. Maybe tomorrow, today Mom has an appt. at CHF clinic and usually these appts. are an all day event.

I do hope to get some stitching in while there.
I'll take the Mosaic Diamond (Mom Quilt) with me.

As you can see is that there are two colors here that I decided to use for the outer ring on the diamonds.

I decided to add the cream grunge because on some of the diamonds the fabric would blend in too much with the gray grunge.
In fact I had sewn it on and put them up on the wall and that is when I realize I would change it up.

Do you see what I mean?

Fun part was taking the ones sewn on off, not easy. I was so afraid of accidentally snipping the hexes. Went very slow.

I need to get  pictures soon of all the diamonds I have together.
I started this quilt almost a year ago, it was May of last year when we were in Houston Tx at the M.D. Anderson for mom. Been a long year with a lot of change in my parents health. It has taken a toll on both of them.
We thought Mom's cancer was gone but it's back, smaller than when first spotted so she wants to have it surgically  removed and is schedule for that in a couple weeks. Pray all will go well and that it's not anywhere else


  1. I'm sorry for all you are going through with your parent's health, I have already been through that, I do not know how old your parents are but I wish them well and I hope you can control your stress with your quilting and the farm - daily life chores help I think. I love your hexies - it has been awhile since I had hexies in my hands now and I find I miss them even though I have other EPP going on

  2. So sorry to hear the set back in your Mother's health. I'll keep her and your family in my prayers this week. Love the hexies! It's going to be an amazing quilt.

  3. So sorry to hear about your Mums latest health scare, hope all goes well with the surgery and a speedy recovery will be prayed for.


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.
