This quilt top was made totally of scraps. All I had to buy was the backing. The levels in my bright fabric bins have really gone down! Now here's my dilemma--should I work them all the way down making scrap quilts or go shopping to replenish them?

I just realized that I need to post right away or I will miss the whole month of November. Ah, yes, November, the month I parted company with my gallbladder. It turns out that all of those stomach aches and back pains were trying to tell me something!
This post is your anatomy lesson for today. Know your digestive system and pay attention if you have pains under your right ribcage. I gave up my gallbladder a week ago and feel much better!

As always, if you feel I deserve your vote, I'd appreciate it. Anything I win is funneled back into my charity quilting.
The bear pattern was designed by Sindy Rodenmayer at www.fatcatpatterns.com

That little cutie on the right in the front row is now the owner of a jungle animal quilt I made. His smile has kept me going for a long time.

First is the two-year-old's quilt, full of hearts and little rag dolls. Each doll has a different embroidered facial expression, from extremely happy to mad as @#$%. This little doll loves to play with dolls and has a very nurturing way about her. I hope she likes her dolly "banky".

Here at our house we are adjusting to having another person in residence. DMIL moved in about two months ago. She likes her new space. As soon as the closing is complete on her old house (hopefully on Monday), I think we will all be able to relax. It's been a tricky process to sell a house that is 400 miles away.

How about a little tour? My camera doesn't really have the right kind of lens for this kind of photography, but you can get a peek at our new space. First is the hallway into the new space. This used to be my laundry room, but now it is my wonderful pantry. I love this space! I love everything about it.
The hall leads into this bright and airy living space. This next picture shows the sitting area, which will have two recliner chairs there in front of the gas stove and TV.

I will be donating this quilt through Project Linus soon.

I want to introduce you to our guys from Mosby Building Arts who have done most of the work on this project. (Many subcontractors have come and gone, but these have been our guys all the way through.) First is James, our project manager, who is willing to do any job, including washing windows. Those are bookcases on that wall, and there will be a little gas stove in between.
This is Tony, our painter. The picture is taken from the new room, in front of the bookcases, looking toward the laundry room.

The song in my head of the day is "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson. I have a very strange mind.

This is my favorite wall--where my washer and dryer will go. I miss them so much!
I feel like we're at the stage of this project where you just give up and accept that it's going to go on forever--kind of like the ninth month of pregnancy.

The second quilt is "Beach Fun". I found the blocks in a book called "Travelin' America in Applique", which I found late last year at Jo Ann Fabrics. I really like this quilt except for one thing. I used a puffy batting because my Project Linus coordinator gave it to me, but hand quilting it was a big fight, and I don't like the puffiness. I doubt if that will bother the recipient, though. Hope not!
