Wowie...Zowie...almost there Chooky! Put your whip away though 'cause I'm almost there!

Here are the blocks for the last row....phew!  Just that sewing block and my dog block to go...almost there.  I think I have been saying that for the last couple of weeks but honestly I'm almost there.  I will have to stay focused though as I go back to work on Monday after having 9 weeks off!  Oh how time flys!  But that's okay, I love my career!  So here they are...
I love butterflies...they remind me of my Mom (my best friend!)

So some of my blocks ended up backwards...oops!  Ah well...birds still sing to the East!

I was going to change this to say 'sunshine on my shoulder's'...a song that my Dad, my brother and I used to sing when we were out and about in the car!  But I decided to leave it be...

I love old wooden chairs!

I love the simlicity of this block....and family is most important!

I love this fabric...it's one of my favorites.  I love to give gifts too!
I love this quilt...I could write a story for each block.  I actually think I just might do that for my label...yikes it will take up the whole back side of the quilt at the rate I am going!
Okay so the push is on to finish up my sewing block and my dog block!  I promise it will be coming soon along with some striping...that sounds awfully funny doesnt it...striping!  LOL
I hope you are all enjoying your summer/winter...where ever you are!
