Charity quilt #3 Golden Cornflower

Today finished up our challenge charity quilt using nickel squares. I have always liked blue and yellow but have never made a quilt with these colors. So pleased with results. Now I am not a machine quilter, but trying learn, so far it is fun and quite fun. I had some multicolored blue thread although I think it was quite old as I broke a few times sewing down the binding. I really like the sway stiching and added some curly circles. Those were fun but I was afraid I would run out of thread. Overall pleased with result. Will present my 3 quilts during our final quilt meeting before snowbirds return home. We are here one more month.


I have moved from the chiropractor to acupuncture this past week. I had one treatment Friday and was amazed how well I felt over the weekend. However last night it started to return, but not as bad. Have a second treatment tomorrow. (forsciatica ). I am hooding to have better control of this so I can return to pickleball by April 1st. We will see as it appears hopeful. Amazing being in pain for past 3 months and to have it almost gone, one forgets what that feels like.

Abi has transferred our cat from Milwaukee back to our condo. Of course Cherith misses him greatly. We have some wonderful neighbors that will visit him every 3 days. He spends a lot of time looking out the window at their house. Wednesday Abi begins her trip coming to AZ and beginning a new life so to speak. She will spend some time with us, find an apartment and begin realtor school. She should be cone with that before we head back to WI. Praying she has a safe trip and her car makes it.

We are traveling with the community travel club to Laughlin NV basically for a Buddy Holly show. About a 7 hour trip there and staying two days. I guess it is a casino hotel, but we do not gamble. Will be fun to travel with the group and see Northern AZ.

Finally our Wisconsin Badgers (basketball) are in the sweet sixteen. They played two outstanding games, fun to watch. We will see how far they go. We will be back just in time to watch the game.

Happy Quilting!

  1. I do like that charity quilt design. It’s very appealing while not being too time-consuming. I hope the acupuncture does wonders for you and you are back at pickleball in time for the new season. Best of luck to Abi in her new endeavors. That cat should be called Tuxedo!
