It was my turn, and the final

I just can't. Sorry. 

All my quilting is put away for now. Sometimes I pass my teeny tiny area (which is now just piled with my quilt fabric in trash bags), and yearn to pick up a needle and thread. But the time isn't right. It will be again someday, hopefully, but not now.

I don't know as I'll ever do another mystery again. It doesn't work out for me. Someday I'll just post the finishes of all the other mysteries. And I'll post free patterns. I hope. Because I have lots of free patterns filed away in my brain.

Thankfully I only had a small stroke. But then I didn't even tell you that did I? Yes I had a tiny stroke. It was in my eye actually. And they can't find a single cause. At least I know my arteries aren't clogged. They did find a small hole in my heart. But that really isn't uncommon. So... I get to begin my own rounds of docs and tests.

And so I just can't. We have too much life going on around here. 

I hope you like the finished layout. 

Ps. I changed the name of my blog. More about that another day. 


  1. It`s awesome and love your color combo!!

  2. Oh Tonya;
    The saying goes God gives you only what you can handle, but it seems he has given you so much to handle. I'm sorry. But you do seem to handle it. Just really sad that you have to stop playing with fabric and needle. Thanks for the final layout on the mystery. As always my thoughts and prayers are with you. Jo

  3. As Jo said, you have had more than your fair share. Thoughts and prayers with ou from me too. Take care and I'm sure you will pick up a needle and thread again soon.

  4. Tonya, I'm so sorry that your health isn't well! I struggle with chronic health issues too and know how hard it is. I can't imagine having an ill husband as well ...
    This final quilt is amazing! I haven't started it yet (due to other EPP projects), but I plan to do it! It's made it to my to do list - I love each individual block and can imagine using them in other projects as well. And they are joined beautifully in this project with the sashing in warm colours!
    So thank you for this amazing project! You are a true artist and I love both this quilt and others you have designed in the past.
    Take care of yourself!

  5. Tonya I'm just reading this post so I'm not sure you'll see this comment but I so sorry to hear about your health issues. You have been under a lot of stress the past few years and I know that is an understatement. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I wish you all the best.
