The blocks are rolling in...or at least they will be. I can't wait to see them all and then there's the challenge of making them all work together. I know they will.
I must, once again, thank all of you who are contibuting. I have been known to be a bit jaded at times (yes, even in one so young :) but I feel inspired and overwhelmed. You people ROCK!
Marie from Life of the Block has posted these three lovelies.
The super purple Kelly from Purple Paisley Patch has made these gems;
and sweetie B from Bianca Jae Makes Stuff (good stuff too!) has done these wonders.
These are just a few of the pics I've been emailed. This next week is going to give my letter box a full on work out! I cannot wait to see what arrives.
You will all go down as angels of blogland in my book. I'll do a full round up when the blocks come in.
In relation to my friend, the person that this is all about. She is doing well. She has been in the hospital for almost a week and is starting to get her head around things. We had a good conversation on Saturday and her spirit is still there, it's just a little smooshed at the moment. She has been allowed to have her sewing machine so there could actually be some real therapy - sewing has to be one of the best kinds.
I can't wait to hand her the quilt. I'm really hoping to keep it a secret from her until then.
At last count there are more than 30 blocks being made or already on their way to me via snail mail. Yay!
Ps. If I get 'too many' (no such thing) blocks I am thinking I will make a second quilt to be donated to a charity that supports people with, or researches in depression and they can auction it off to raise money. Any thoughts or does anyone have issues with that?
