I'm back after a crazy couple of weeks!

It has been crazy ever since my birthday...it started off great-DS came up from Tel Aviv for the week-end after my birthday and brought with him DD's best friend since 8th grade (I call her my other daughter) and we all had a great time. Sunday night I started having terrible pains in my side-I was sure it was muscular and the doctor agreed but I have no idea what I did-Dr. thinks I was in a draft (sort of a stiff side rather than a stiff neck!) Have you ever heard of such a thing! I'm telling you-60 and the aches and pains begin. :) I had to stay in bed for days...not much fun.

We've been having problems with out internet connection so I couldn't even go blog hopping while I was laid up. Its finally fixed-I hope-and I'll be around visiting very soon.

I'd been working on the commission quilt-remember those beautiful bright fabrics-lots of oranges-that I showed a while ago. Well here's a peek at what I've done with them.


Yes, it is a disappearing 9 patch-that was the design the customer picked...I played with it a bit and turned the blocks on point and turned some to form double Xs whle others were positioned
to make long "slashing" rectangles. Its now basted and half machine quilted-I hope to finish quilting the center tomorrow and then the border (which you can't see in this pix.) I need to get this finished before allergy season hits...I can see the mango trees are starting to bloom already.

I hope you are just fine again Miri!
I do love the the quilt you are working on just now. Lovely and bright colours. Yes I know allergi season very well and I have been hoping it will not be so bad this spring because of the long winther.
I can always hope right ;-))

The D9P is delightful, Miri, what size will it be & how are you quilting it? I love how versatile this design is no matter what fabrics it always turns out nicely & so fast!
Oh, happy belated 60, my next biggie is too scary for words!
