Month End for April

It seems like April flew by.  I got quite a bit done. 

1.  Celebrating Mary Brown.

I actually got 2 blocks done this month.  The first is the applique block.  The second is the block I made to replace the feathered star.  

2.  These are the next blocks for Mrs. Lincoln's Quilt.

3. Derby House BOM.

This month all the blocks were pieced.  I love the fabric.  

4.  Barbara Brackman's Yankee Notions.

5.  Providence BOM

This is the BOM I get from Connecting Threads.

6.  April's Monthly Mini.

For some reason this reminds me of Christmas.  I just finished this yesterday.

I hope you are all doing well with our Stay at home Staycation?  I've gotten a lot of sewing done.  Besides what I have shown you here I've made face masks for my family.  I've now made 4 for my husband.  He keeps asking for different prints.  Who knew.

I also started a new quilt.  I call it salt water taffy.  I have about 15 blocks made.  I'm going to need about 42 blocks.  I have a photo of the blocks to show next month.

All of my doctor followup appointments have been cancelled with the exception of my surgeon.  I have been having pain in my left breast.  That is the one they removed the cancer.  It's really been bothering me.  So they had me come in and see the Paula, the nurse practitioner.  She gave me so much information and said most of the discomfort I am having is from the radiation treatments.  She also showed me some arm exercise that should help.  I needed refills on my meds.  They won't do that unless you come in and see the doctor.  Since they are not seeing patients except for emergencies I was given a telephone appointment.  I was given a time that the doctor would call.  She asked me a bunch of questions and then sent my prescriptions to the pharmacy.  These times are making an impact every where.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

House Arrest

Put to good use.  Okay so I'm not under house arrest but it sure feels like it.  

I've been keeping busy.

Gay at Sentimental Stitches shared the last blocks of the Cheddarback quilt.  

This is Month 14.

This is Month 15.

I have all the blocks sewn into the set.  This week I plan on sew the top together and will try and get a photo of the completed quilt.  It is really big.

This is block 4 for the Out West BOM by Pat Sloan. 

The fabric in the center of the block is my inspiration fabric.  It will be the border of the quilt.

And finally Block 4 of Quiltdoodles BOM.  These blocks are 20".

So now I am off to the sewing room.  I got the fabric and patterns in the mail for Month 2 of the Providence BOM.  So I'm hoping to get them finished toay.

I hope you are doing well.  Remember to stay in and stay safe.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy
