Something Quilty

This is day 2 when you try to do what she did.  Well, it sort of works..LOL.  She had mine poofier.   I have really thin hair, but a lot of it.  I had a couple of people ask for better pictures.  My husband loves the wispiness around the back. 

Once I get some sunscreen and some good foundation the redness isn't as bad on my face.

I had someone ask what cut I had.  I'm not sure what the name of the cut is, but it's halfway between the style where the back end is really short and has a sharp angle toward your face and cutting it short.  She  razor edged a lot of it.  

Now for something quilty.  My friend Gina sent me these fabulous heart blocks for my mom.  My mom is having a rough time as they face the possibility of losing their house of 26 years.  My dad isn't getting paid like he should and she's a wreck.  I thought a small quilt would cheer her up some.  She's been terribly depressed and as I'm a pro with depression, I know what she's dealing with.  It's hard to do anything when you don't have the energy or desire too.

Gina, the blocks came just in time as I got a phone call from my mom saying she'll be at my house tonight as she's now in Indiana!  I made a tablerunner from Gina's blocks:

From Quilted with Love
I still need to finish up the quilting and get it bound.  Hopefully I will have it done by 10pm when my parents show up.

Gina, the blocks are wonderful and I love the colors.  Thank you! camera is dying.  The last few pictures have been awful and it's not battery related.  I've only had the camera for about 5 years..LOL.  It's a Nikon CoolPix 2100 with the giant card.  Now the memory cards are no bigger than your thumb.  Wow.  I've loved this camera so much.  My mom gave it to me for my birthday and at the time, it wasn't cheap.  I've dreaded buying another one but I may have too.
