Midget Applique Wednesday....

I spent some time prepping appliqué on Saturday while the kids were at Grandma's. I pulled one out yesterday while in the car line and got this Three Leaf Flower completed last night.

I believe that gives me 43 completed blocks. There are 52 in the series.... but for a 7x7 setting I only need 49 blocks. That means only 6 blocks to go!

Please send some prayers and good thoughts up today. My Dad is undergoing surgery this morning for a blocked artery in his neck. Fingers crossed all goes well and he has a speedy recovery. One of my sisters is up at the hospital with them (I called at 7:30 after dropping kids to school) and stayed overnight at the hotel with them -they live an hour away and December in VT - you never know the roads with temps. One brother was planning to head up after dropping his daughter to school. At least someone is there with Mom while Dad is in surgery.

I'm off to run a few errands and pick up some things for the kids xmas parties in their classrooms tomorrow and then heading in to help out in Aidan's classroom this morning after their specials. His class has been learning about a lot of different traditions around the world this time of the year. They learned about Kwanzaa yesterday and I believe today is Hanukkah and playing the dreidel game.


  1. Wishing your Dad a full and speedy recovery.

  2. Oh I am sending prayers and good wishes for your Dad. Tough this time of year....hugs, Julierose

  3. Thoughts and prayers for your dad. Hopefully all has gone well and he will be home again soon. Getting so close to done with your applique blocks. What will the new handwork be for next year?

  4. How do you choose which three blocks to skip? :)

    Prayers and positive thoughts for your dad. I hope the surgery went well.
