Did you think I left forever???

Did you all think I'd dropped off the ends of the earth to never be heard from again!  What can I say...sometimes life gets really hectic and crazy lol!

First on the agenda, David's test results: biopsy came back "no malignant cells at this time"!!! so for now, he is completely cancer free!  He celebrated with a huge 50th birthday party with tons of food and fellowship, a big bonfire and at the end of the bonfire, he burned his radiation mask from last year.  It was a great celebration of love, friends, family and gratitude that we have such a wonderful, caring, healing God!

 Yep, all 50 candles lol!  He's trying not to burn his mustache off haha!
 David blowing out a marshmallow and that's Matthew sitting with his marshmallow stick standing straight up, probably contemplating if having the whole stick on fire would qualify as a Jedi light sabre.

Next, I've started a new quilt lol!! Check it out....aren't these just the most fun fabrics and colors! So not my usual style but I love them.  They are from The Quilted Fish thru Riley Blake.  I have all my blocks done and just have to start the sashings and cornerstones!
 Loving those polka dots!!

I am so digging those red and blue polka dot squares!

Well, I can't promise I'll be here tomorrow but I am genuinely going to try to blog more often.  

This one's for you Bob!
 Happy Stitching and God Bless!

Yay for you guys, especially David. May you be cancer free for another 50 years! There's no better birthday present and I'm hoping for the same gift come this November.

Love those blocks, Shelley. I can't wait to see it all put together.
