Good news for me today, I'm feeling well enough to do some sewing. I'm starting to get the teacups sewn together. It's going to be a tricky job, because although I made the blocks the same height, they are not the same width, and the same for the joining strips. As soon as I can get that organized, I can start to get the free-pieced lettering together. I will just have to work at them and make them fit by adding and subtracting the sizes of the blocks. And I posted a photo of my patio plant. Isn't it something? It's a succulent and likes to change colors. I have two of these. A friend gave me cuttings a few years ago. And another thing--three cheers for our Olympic athletes! You know, I was on the curling team in High School. My parents even curled at one time. It's a great family-type sport.
