Bridal Shower

It has been a crazy month and this is the first time I've been able to post. I am on the adjunct faculty of the local community college. We finished up the semester and I'm thrilled to have my Tuesdays free again! I just can't seem to find the time to get everything done I want to.

I did manage to get the last of the Sunbonnet Sue bride kits mailed out. Seventy-one went out. That is more than I expected, so we'll be able to get 2 or 3 quilts done. It just depends on how many of them come back as completed quilt blocks.

Some have already started coming. It is like a bridal show of block. Here is one of them:

If you'd like to see the others, here is the link:

It is amazing the generosity of quilters.

There is a strange sort of footnote to this charity project. My mammogram this month turned up problems in both my breasts. I had to go back for more images (OUCH) and the doctors have decided to wait six months and have another mammogram done to see if there are changes.

Just that one little episode was pretty scary for me. I can't imagine living with it every day.

Can you post somewhere prominent the deadline for sending the Bride blocks in? I have this strange fear that I'm going to miss the deadline. Thanks!

The deadline for the blocks to come back in is June 15th. Some of the kits went out late because I ran out of background fabric. I won't start putting them together until July, so anytime in June is fine.
