A little sunshine on a cloudy week...

Howdy!

I just want to check in and say thank you so much for all the prayers, well wishes and positive vibes for my dad. He had surgery last week and is doing great! He's should be going home this week!

I hope to share some finished projects this week including all my Virtual Quilting Bee blocks (woot woot) and a new EPP finish. Since I'm at the hospital during my free time, I've done a lot of EPP stuff. So relaxing. It's been cloudy and rainy here so no pictures yet.

We did go to the Dallas Arboretum this past weekend and I have to include pictures in the post, so you are forced to look at pictures of the relishes instead.

Aren't they cute?!? Big relish wasn't into having her picture taken but little relish was the perfect model.

Onto super exciting news for me....I won! First, I won a gift card to Fat Quarter Shop over at A Quilters Table for the Zakka 2.0 4th quarter link up! Oh man, I was so delighted! I finally won for all my hard Zakka work! Thanks to everyone that kept their fingers crossed for me each week! OH, and then, THIS morning, I got an email from Molli Sparkles to check his blog this morning....and I won there, too! Fabric from Intrepid Thread, my pick! He is such a doll! Thanks again to everyone for making my week so much brighter. I hope to be back to full swing next week!

  6. I am able to comment today, your last few posts I could not get the comment box to open up and no way of letting you know. I do hope your Dad is feeling a lot better now, it is lovely you could spend so much time by his bedside, knowing you were there must have been a great solace and comfort to him.
    You lucky thing winning not one but two lots of fabric, maybe my turn next!
