Half way there!
Thanks to some good football this weekend I got 2 blossoms on my 3rd border done to get me officially to 50% complete!
And then I did one more so I'm officially at 52%.
I may not be posting again until Saturday. Mom is here this week and we are spending our time house/apartment shopping for her instead of having fun making things. She'll be moving to Richmond in late Spring and it will be nice to have her closer. Getting to that point, however, is a painful process for both of us. We would rather be reading or sewing.

Oh my word Vickie! I'm blown away by your beautiful stitching. Your appliqué work is breathtaking. Thank you so much for posting. Please extend my Happy New Year wishes to your mother and Chris, and remember to reserve some for yourself.

I have loved watching you make this quilt - stitch by stitch from the beginning! Now I'm visualizing it covered with your beautiful quilting. You have turned someone's long-ago UFO into a potential Show Stopper!!! Have fun with your Mom!

Hopefully you find a place for Mom easily. Congratulations on making it pass the halfway mark!

Over halfway? As the saying goes "it is all downhill from here."

My mom turned 85 in November and has macular degeneration. She's lived in her house for 56 years and it will take a tactical strike to get her out of it short of feet first! She finally gave up the car and hubby and I bought it from her. It's 10 years old and only has 32,000 miles on it. She was the proverbial little old lady who only drove it to church and back. Anyway, my sister lives about 15 minutes from her, my brother is maybe 20 minutes away, and I'm 40 minutes away. So she really doesn't have to move yet. Happy house hunting, and make sure you account for storing her stash.

I hope the hunt for a nice home for your Mom goes well. It will be so much easier to have her closer I'm sure. Just think of the quilting adventures you will have!
