Crazy Quilt Collage in Progress...


Blue is recovering well, he is still a bit slower than normal (he's tried a new thing - sleeping in), but he will come around with the continued liver med I'm sure.

Here is the progress on the little quiltie (5x7). More embellishing to go. I used a piece of an antique silk crazy quilt block for the base on this and the silk fabrics are wonderful to work on.

This morning I am going out back to "Miracle Gro" the garden and flowers for a little health boost for them in this relentless heat.

Cat this is so precious! I love the color combinations! Your heat can't be as bad as Kansas???? Are you in the mountains? Miracle Gro does give a kick in the pants to plants. I'm afraid mine are a lost cause. Today the heat indices are 120 F!!!! I am staying indoors and working on art! DH and kids went to the lake to boat...yuk.

From Joy - your love and concern for Blue are obvious in this beautiful piece - such beautiful fabric and stitches. So glad Blue is on mend. It is hot, hot, hot here also - and the humidity adds to the misery. It is as dry as powder house and everything is wilted - YUK - oh well that's central Texas for you. I would go jump in the lake but a neighbor might see me. I'm not interested
in being put in jail for frightening the kids, and possibly the dogs!
Good wishes to little Blue.
