Into The Wild Blue Yonder








My Mom got this Sunbonnet Sue Quilt at one of the estates that they picked up recently. She said she thought about me the second she saw it. It came in the mail the other day. I had no idea she was sending it. Little Sue has some problems, there are some spots on the quilt and some of the Sue's are very worn out. There is no backing on this quilt and I think it must have been a summer cover for the bed. The Sue's are a bit different. Some are wider than the others. I just think it is neat to have but one day I will fix the worn out Sue's. I also took a close up of one of the Sue's so you could see all the hand work. The blocks were hand stitched together as well.


Also I am off to my Mom's again. She had a heart attack on Monday and had a stint put in. She is doing well but still in the hospital. Her blood pressure is a little low and I am not sure when she will be released. I am flying out tomorrow(Thursday) to spend some time with her while she recuperates. I will have limited acess to the internet while I am there but will try and read everyone's posts when I can.
Hope to see you all in blogland soon.........
