Some Good News

I thought it would be nice to share some very good news. James got his biopsy results and he doesn't have Crohn's Disease. That's the best news in a while around here. He has to be more focused on his diet and that can only be a good thing. Our visitors are in Manhattan until tomorrow. They went in for the St. Paddy's Parade and a show on Broadway. Peace is restored for the moment. I'm working on some business for the Pantry and catching up with the laundry and such.

Our weather has gotten really nice for these past few days. Spring is on the way. Love it!

Why is it that when you can't get to the sewing machine you come up with a fountain of ideas that you would love to try immediately. Oh well, I'm taking a few moments to click around and see what you all are up to. I saw a BOM on someones blog that looked like fun

I saw it in the original form as you see in green on the left. Then I saw someone else had made it in different springy shades and I like both ideas. I should probably think of this as a Christmas project to work on know, before
Christmas(heh). Here's the candy colored one. Isn't it adorable? It's paper-pieced and I can't remember where I saw this so I apologize to the very talented person who came up with this great idea. If anyone knows who is offering this would you let me know so I can send my mea culpa and an apology...and lots of praise. If I do make this I'm thinking I would start with the fabulous hand dyed gradations that I bought from Darcie last year. I would need to add something additional but the colors I got from her are luscious. So that's what's on my agenda right now.
I know I said I wouldn't blog till next week but I wanted to share the good news about James and say that my nose is healing nicely. Thanks to all of you who left nice messages. I'll talk to you soon.

Yeah! We love good news. We love a happy, healthy Dee. I love that quilt, but yikes - all those points - not for me the original pointless sister!!

Send me some spring weather.

Yes, always post good news--not enough of that around! Glad you are all doing better. Cool quilt idea. I like the green one. I can see that in many, many shades of green.

Libby said...

Yeah for good news! I bet everyone is relieved.

I'm collection the patterns for that quilt, too. It's a free BOM. Check it out over here -

Since I have a terrible BOM track record, I'm just collecting the patterns for now. Then it will get added to my very long list of quilts to make - someday*s*

Someone already mentioned twiddletails so I won't repeat, but it is based (albeit loosely & doably) on a quilt that was shown at the Tokyo Quilt Show a couple years ago. Drop me a line & I'll send you the link to the original.

Good news is always better than bad news any day! Good to hear!

Kay said...

Yay for the good news, Dee. Love the daffodils and the quilt pattern too. It looks like mountains and pine trees to me. Hmm...

Cindra said...

I love that quilt... I saw it, too.. but when I checked it out I had already missed the first two blocks... darn!!
Glad to hear things are getting better for you.

Darcie said...

Wonderful news about James!!! What a sigh of relief. Hope his new outlook on his daily diet is going well.

And so sweet of you to mention those October's Child hand dyeds! ;-) I've got OODLES more where those came from if you're needing any more *candy.* ;-) Wish you could come to my candy store personally. Wouldn't that be a riot!

Stay well, my friend. ;-)
