Home Sweet Home

It's so nice to be home. My sister and I have been taking turns staying with my dad at his home, which is about a thirty minute drive for me. He is recovering from the heart surgery and can stay by himself for short periods at this point. Thanks to all my blogging friends who left such sweet comments and wishing him well, it means a lot.
My dad lives in the woods about thirty minutes from town and the view is beautiful from his deck. My sister lives next door and the sweet dog is named Lucy. She kept us company during our visits.

This is pictures of the gorgeous material I purchased. The pattern is so very easy that I cut out all the pieces on Sunday afternoon after church and began making the blocks. I found the pattern in a cute little fabric shop, "The Quilting Bee", in historic Jonesborough, Tennessee a few weeks ago and returned over the weekend to purchase the fabric. It is called, "Take Five", by The Teacher's Pet.

I am glad you did not give up your blog! I had just found you and am looking forward to getting acquainted. Sometimes life requires that we pause in some of our activities. I also am happy to hear that your Dad is doing well after his surgery. A lucky Dad to live in such a beautiful location that is next door to one of his lovely daughters! And with another lovely daughter only a half hour drive away!
You found a stack of lively, happy fabrics! Can't wait to see what you do with them!
Blessings,
Linda H
