Thank you!

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for your kindness in regards to me losing my Lucy girl.  She was with me for a long time.  Scott rescued her when she was only 8 months old.  When I can handle going through my photos, I'll post a picture of her right after we had her spayed.  She was so cute.  In the meantime, this one was taken about 2 years ago:

And this one was taken in 2014.  She was looking at Scott:

We had her little kidneys working great!  But she was having trouble with her back legs.  Our vet suspected that she had a blood clot in her spine causing her back legs to give out on her.  I couldn't take chance that she would fall and break a bone.  I didn't want her to suffer.  So I did what I had to do.  She was 19 1/2 years old.  We gave her a good life.  She wanted for nothing.  She was so beautiful!

Anyway, I've been trying to keep myself busy.  I'm always lost when I lose one.  I pulled out my Crazy Quilt trinket blocks.  I had one started from awhile ago and I finished it up:

Sorry that the picture is a little dark and fuzzy.  I took this with my cellphone rather than my camera.  I'll get a better picture and post it soon.

Over the weekend, I sewed up a couple more of these little 6 inch blocks to stitch on.

It's really been a rough couple of years here.  A rough decade really.  But Spring is around the corner right?  Despite the fact that we just got dumped on with 12 inches of snow over the weekend.  I was really okay with not having to look at any!

In case you missed my post, the Spring 2018 issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine is now available:

This is available in both print and digital from Magcloud.

Oh, I wanted to make an announcement about the ATC Swap.  We didn't receive enough ATC's to put together into a book.  So instead, we will be featuring them in the Summer 2018 issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine.  The prizes will remain the same.  My staff and I will vote on our 6 favorite ATC's and those ladies will receive the prizes.  I'll keep you all posted as to when I send the ATC's out.

Since today is Abraham Lincoln's birthday, I think I'll go stitch and watch the movie Lincoln.  If you haven't seen it, it's very good!
