These blocks are from a UFO, a very old UFO. I started it at least 8 years ago. Because I joined an applique group a while ago I decided to finish this quilt before I start anything new. It is from Eleanor Burns' Applique in a Day.
This block is called "Distlefink".
My darling Mimi is feeling much better. She is helping me with my quilts and playing with her toys. She also chases her 'brother' all over the house. He really needs the exercise, the little chubby wubby. Mimi is toothless now and is still getting doses of prednisone for her auto-immune condition. But she is eating on her own and often raids the hard kibble food dish. She really likes it and is very good at scarfing down the little hard pieces without teeth.
