A Little (very little) Work in Progress

I've started work on a small quilt for Alzheimer's Art Quilts.  It's been a long time since I made one, mine have all sold, and I felt like it was time.  I decided to quilt the background before doing the applique this time, and finished this square spiral, which I hope will complement the design.   Back tomorrow with more to show, maybe.

My flamingos did make the Hoffman traveling exhibit again.  They will be in Group C, which goes to the Mid Atlantic show, among others.   This makes a seven-time streak, which pleases me quite a bit.

Other news:  I had pieces of both big toenails removed because they tend to grow in along the side of the nail bed.  As surgical procedures go, this is minor, but a pain (literally) nonetheless.  It's been over a week now, and they're still very nasty.  I will spare you pictures of that!  Just a little complaint to throw into the mix...  Otherwise things are good.  Thanks everyone who came to visit after my long time away.

I look forward to seeing the rest of the Alz. quilt soon. And... OUCH! Hope your toes are feeling better before too long!

Congrats Kay once again.

Good luck with the toe nails. Sounds like flip flops for a while. :)

Aw come on! Let's see those toes!

Glad that you have another piece going and super glad that your flamingos made it into the Hoffman exhibit. You are definitely on a roll with them.

I am always impressed by your Hoffman challenges. Congrats on being part of the traveling show. Sorry to hear about your pain in the toes! but it will probably keep you behind the sewing machine for a bit which is always a good thing!
