“You are My Sunshine” – March 18th


How is everyone today?. I'm surprised how well I'm settling into this new normal of being home a whole lot more. If you can believe it, I'm in the midst of a 28 day detox program. Yes, I'm making an effort to get healthy, haha, not really, but my cholesterol was elevated and I'm not a fan of medication so that means change your diet girlfriend. I had ordered a refill of a couple of the supplements I needed to finish up and they sent me the wrong thing so...................my excitement for the day was a drive over to the doctor's office to make an exchange off their back deck without seeing anyone. It worked like a charm and I treated the Jeep to a car wash on the way home. 

I've actually done a little more than just run an errand and get the car washed. Orders were shipped - restocking orders placed - some treadmill time and there's always time for cuddles with Lily and Gracie.


Friendship Quilt

Here's today's FREE PATTERN! It another small quilt that I had great fun making. The little blocks are foundation paper pieced and really easy to make.

Pick out some of your favorite bits and pieces of fabric along with a group of shirtings. We always think of this block as Capital T and I was surprised to learn it's a very old pattern from Capper's Weekly called Friendship Quilt.  You know..........we' ll get by with a little help from our friends.


And.............if you wonder what you might do with this little quilt here's an idea.................

Lori at Humble Quilts is hosting her 7th Annual Doll Quilt Swap. I've participated in the past and it's great fun. Be sure to visit Lori's blog and check it out.

If you want to order from the online shop and get the FREE SHIPPING during You are My Sunshine, you need to use the coupon code SUNSHINE during checkout and it'll take the shipping charges off your order.

    Hello Sweet Gay. Thank you again for such an inspirational post. Also for your story. I am so sorry to hear your husband lost his job now but it won’t be long before he’s back to work. We have got to keep our faith that all will work out. God is awesome and he’s in our corner. I love Gracie’s picture sleeping. She is gorgeous and I’M sure a sweet add on. ]Love the quilt The Giant Dahlia. Not sure if I understand the pattern. Is it paper pieced? 🙁 Looks too hard for me to handle but I did get a pattern similar to this at the Road to California quilt show 2007. I never got into it though. I looked at it and didn’t have the faith in myself to try it. But thank you for the patterns. I am loving them all. I will have enough to keep me busy for awhile. lol Be safe and your in my prayers and thoughts.
