Crazy Quilt Class....

Hi Sweeties!!!        

I hope all of you are doing well!!

I have been very busy lately.
I started a class this week with
Artful Gathering in Pat Winters
class. I am learing how to Crazy
Quilt!!! Yay!! I have always wanted
to learn how to make a crazy quilt
and now I am learning how!!
The pictures here is the front of
what is going to be an Accessory
Case, with clasp. Yesterday I learned
how to piece. I wanted to show you
my results.  The next step is to learn
some of the fancy stitching and embellishing

I am almost done making the 160
"Wish" tags for a wedding thats
coming up at the end of the month.

As some of you know I have started
physical therapy for my hip, leg and
back pain. I go three times a week
for different treatments. Today I
had my third Decompression therapy.
It did not go too well for me this time.
I have to ice my back and take it easy
The mass they found inside my knee
turned out to be a calcification...from
some trauma I must have had. On
the x-ray it looked so ominous..I
was praying that it was not a tumor!!

I must go for now...but I missed
not writing to you All and don't
want you guys to think I have forgotten
Love to All...and thank you all for
your prayers!!
I know they are helping me!!

Love and Hugs,

    Such great news on one hand that your knee mass was not more serious and something you can work on.
    Love your beautiful CQ piece here with Pat.
    Your fabrics look so yummy too - beautiful choices! I adore crazy quilting and have for many years and now I have just finished my first Heart Strings at Artful Gathering and I have even been featured with my piece there - my first ever attempt at creating with jewellery. Keep working carefully and slowly on healing!
    Hugs to you,
    Suzy xox
