IMQG July Block for Chelsea

is finished.
Chelsea asked us to use lots of open space and cream for her ocean themed block.

I apologize for the horrible shot, but it's so dang bright out outside, all my shots looked like the sun had exploded, so I went into the sunroom.

Fell head over heels in adorability for this little gull walking the shore.

This block is a 14 1/2" sq one.  Chelsea, hope you like it!

Did you know how much your kind words and encouragement mean to me!  I love hearing if anyone else is as excited about projects as I am.  Thank you for all your enthusiasm and affirmation for the Aloha block.  I'm working on another center piece and still haven't gotten out to buy more Love.

We spent the weekend in two different states.  A family reunion on my mom's side and a memorial service for a dear friend's son kept us travelling.  Good food and visiting in Michigan with cousins, aunts and uncles and my Grandpa, who at almost 90, still goes bow hunting and fishing on Lake Erie!

July 19th, 2009, a young man was driving home from a day racing, with his dad in another vehicle on the same road.  They believe Zach had a seizure and swerved into a semi.  I remember him as a chubby lil' four year old showing me his playset and then as a teenagaer dealing with epilepsy while making his life work and being a friend to all.  It was encouraging and heartening to hear one man's testimony about Zach's faithfulness in friendship at the memorial service.  His dad works with my hubby and has been a great friend and mentor to him.

You are missed Zach by your mom and dad, and all those who knew and love you still.
