Breast Pockets for QA

This is the Breast Pocket I made yesterday at our Fiberista meeting for the current challenge from Quilting Arts magazine. Some people may remember the call Melanie Testa put out two years ago on her blog to bring attention to women with breast cancer that opted not to have reconstructive surgery. I made four of them then.
At our meeting we all sat and stitched chatted. It was wonderful! We had six in attendance and six breast pockets that Julie has kindly agreed to send in to QA.

Sue brought in her books from last month for show n tell. Her weaved binding is beautiful and the beads are so fun.
I will get pics of mine posted soon. I started working in one of them. Like a collage, this book will come together bit by bit. Because many missed the last meeting, we will be doing books again.

Maddi is 3 months now...
I love this pic! Jenn scared her and caught the priceless expression. If her current cooing and ahhing are any indication of the talking Maddi....she will be very loquacious

Mela is 15 months old....
New words are being added to her repertoire daily. She is a happy, very active and inquisitive toddler..

Baby boy is about five weeks away from moving out of his first apartment, Melissa's womb! Last I heard Reilly is the name on top of  list.

As you can see by my multi pic post I am working on my old laptop. This makes me happy. My pictures are still downloading differently but I finally figured out a way to see the images after I found them.

I have learned:

1.  Season 6 of Sons of Anarchy finally on Netflix. The season finale was gut ripping, tear bursting sad.

2.  Many months ago I mentioned I had gotten an email from Quarry books that something I had submitted many months before that was to be published in a book called "1000 Quilt Inspirations", coming out in February 2015. I have no idea what I sent. We will be surprised together.

3.  Think I have a Ganglion cyst on my right wrist. That is the hand that has had Dupuytrens contracture

Can't wait to see what you sent in to inspire us!!
Old age is the pits, isn't it? Something quits working right every day.
