UPDATE

Hi Everyone

 

As you may have noticed, I haven’t been blogging or posting very much this past few weeks.  My apologies!  It has continued to be very busy at work lately and then with my uncle and other family issues that have come up, I have found that I am just too tired to do much.  But that will soon be changing.  I’m taking a short vacation the week after next and plan to devote my time off to sewing.  In fact, I’m going on an actual retreat for a couple of days with other quilters from the guild and we plan to sew.

I am looking forward to it as that means my darling retired hubby won’t be underfoot all the time.  I’m trying to help find a hobby for him besides watching TV while I work, but I guess he is not ready for that yet.  I love him dearly but I’m used to having some time to myself, alone, for a while each day.  Even if for just an hour or so.   I look forward to going to the gym just to get away for a while.  Good news is that I’m losing weight and went down a size!  WOOHOO!

Anyhoo, I know that I have promised the last couple of blocks for the Oh, My Stars quilt and haven’t delivered yet.  There will be 4 new blocks up on Saturday, May 24th.  I have them cut out and laid out but still need to be sewn.    Remember, you will need to make 2 of each block, so that will be a total of 8 blocks that will be ready then.

Well, it’s getting late here and time for bed.  I will post more soon.  Thank you for your  patience and friendship.

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
