So Much News. . . So Little Time

Wow, where do I begin.  It has been quite a month for me with dramatic ups and downs.  Most recently I have been in Ohio with my sister.  My father passed away on March 10 from the complications of Alzheimer's disease.  He had been stricken with this condition more than 6 years ago and my sister was his primary care giver.  I went back whenever I could to give her a break.  Dad was almost 90 and in remarkably good health right up to the end.  Thanks to hospice he was able to stay at home with my sister and go peacefully in his sleep. 
So after nearly 2 weeks away I am finally back home and re-adjusting to work, and getting caught up on quilt projects.

First of all, I am late on posting the next block in my 2010 Free Block of the Month, so without further ado, here is Block 4 of the Tulip Tiles Quilt.

This blocks will be available for free until April 30.  After that time it can be purchased from my website at for $2.00 and $.75 shipping.

Block 3 will be available for free for a few more weeks.  Blocks 1 and 2 can be purchased from my website.

There is so much more to tell but I will have to add more tomorrow when I have time.  Off to retreat for a much needed break, and work on finishing another pattern!  I will post pictures soon.  For now, enjoy this month's block.  I can't wait for some of you to send me pictures of the blocks you have made so far.
