Remember when I went to Dayton on retreat? I had posted a couple pictures of individual Butterflies. This is the results. Done, all except the antenna's They have to have them but I need some black wool, that Kim is going to send me. They can be sewn down while quilting I hope.
This was one of the Buggy Barn designs in the Celebrated Craziness book. Some other neat designs also. These are just so much fun to make. Like putting a puzzle together.
I want to do this again using the full size block of 12 in. One of our members drew this out for me in a 8 in Size as that is the size of Layer Cake that I had and wanted to use. It is made out of Neptune some vibrant colors.
The nurse that comes to visit my Hubby saw the blocks and commented about the butterflies and the symbol for the new Arts school starting this fall in a refurbished theatre in Hagerstown. One of her girls was picked to attend. This is part of the school system. So If this turns out OK I just might give it to her to take to the school to be hung or auctioned off or whatever they might want to do with it.
This summer for a money making project different people designed and made large butterflies which were put on concrete stands and displayed all over town. Then auctioned off. One is now standing in the middle of Boonsboro. Not sure who bought it but I suspect Nora Roberts did for the town. Will try and get a picture of it tomorrow when I go down to Boonesboro Days in the park.
The weather isn't very good for it today but at least it's not raining. This is the other project that I have been working on. Our online group is having a swap of these All In A Row blocks from Kim Diehl's book Simple Comforts. There are some other really good patterns in this book.
I still have another set to make. A set consists of 5 blocks and I am doing 5 sets. Probably will end up making a few more blocks to increase the size of this quilt. But a new project .
Just a little about my life. Hubby has been doing very good. Only getting me up once a night. That I can take. I also started back to Water Aerobics on Wed. Then Friday we have found a lady that will come in and sit with Hubby while I go swimming on Mon. and Fridays. So next week it will be a full week.
That with all the Home Care people coming to see him, things are going fine.
He has survived getting those 3 teeth out and not eating much except soft foods. It's a chore thinking of something he can eat that he will eat. Lots of jello, pudding and ice cream here now. Hopefully by next week he can start to eat something a little more solid. The only trouble is the dentist did not think that our dentist will be able to save the other teeth. Time will tell.
So all in all things have been going fairly smooth around here and with fall coming I guess the next thing is turning on the heat. Although they say 80's again this coming week.
The dogwood tree has a lot of red berries and the leaves are turning a golden red. They are the first to start changing. Thanks for stopping by.
