WORD SCRAMBLE

Yesterday I spent the morning in my sewing room and it was good therapy : )  I even tidied up a little and finished piecing all my letters for the Heal group.  Can you guess what my word is?



How about now?


If you guessed 'Comfort' then you are right


Words are fun to piece and aren't hard at all. This is my contribution to the quilt we are doing for Hospice in November.  I'm really looking forward to seeing what Melissa does with all our blocks.

We were also asked to make a second block of our choosing so I made another spider web block. That pretty much takes care of my scraps of 'Dori' by Benartex. What a cheerful line of fabric!


I mentioned in my last post that my Mom had turned 80. For her gift, my sister and I hired a photographer to do an all girls, four generation photo shoot. This is a picture the photographer posted as just a teaser for us.

l to r--DIL, Miss J, my daughter, Miss S, me, my Mom, and my new DIL
With three more sons yet to marry, I'm excited to see what THAT picture will look like   : )

Enjoy your week end.

Love your letter piecing. From the pics on Facebook it looks like your Mom's party was a great success. Hope you took a moment to enjoy it as well.

There is something soothing about the word comfort!! Great letter blocks...AND...love the generation photo....obviously the 'fountain of youth' gene runs in the family!!

Love the 'Dori' line of fabric - so bright and vibrant. Great letters - 'comfort' feels like a warm, cozy quilt so will be a great addition.

As always your piecing is so very neat and accurate, and really does so much justice to the fabrics. What a wonderful photo of all you girls together and such a lovely present for your mum. Philippa xx

Oh I love your letters, they are wonderful! Are they paper pieced? I would love to know how you did these letter blocks if your willing to share. I have a quilt top I'm making right now as a Christmas gift for my little girl and I would love to add her name to the top in the same kind form as your letter blocks. Any help would be great!

Wow. Love that family photo. What a special way to commemorate your beautiful mum's birthday (she so does not look 80!). Happy birthday to her!

Debbie said...

the letters are great, but I especially love the photo!

Oh how I love making block letters to form words! In a giveaway I won the book Wordplay, and have found reasons to use it, though only twice. I like to try to put words on the back of my quilts. The problem is sometimes that I have too much to say! Ha! Your idea for an all-girls family photo is great! Keep and cherish those memories.

Dawn Hughes said...

Love your letters, the colours are great, and to such a great cause....and a great family picture...when everyone gets married you will need the wide lens camera....great memories....
