A fun block.........

The scraps of Cherrywood fabrics from this top have been laying on my cutting table teasing me.  Since I didn't want to do much one eyed cutting, I figured a wonky block was the perfect thing to make. 
I hope to be able to answer comments in a couple days.  Removal of the radioactive thing in my eye is this morning and no more heavy lead patch slipping down my face after that.  I will still probably have a shield over the bruised eye for awhile so I'll take what will happen one day at a time.  Thank you for continuing to leave comments even though I couldn't continue the conversation with you.

Wanda, you were making wonky blocks long before most people even considered it. I think it is fitting that you go back and explore this again. Best wishes with this next procedure!

I love your Wonky block.
Yaay for getting the seeding device removed. I hope it is completely successful and that your recovery time is short. (no need to answer this.)

You're amazing, Wanda. You seem to be handling all this. Of course I'm sure in private there are worries. Don't worry about answers to comments.
The wonky block does seem like the perfect thing!

Mary said...

What a fun block! Good luck with your procedure today. You continue in my prayers.

Chris said...

I did a double take this morning - saw your block on my blog feed, but thought it was another quilter who makes stuff like this - not your usual style with all the solids but I love love love it! Must try this! You take care and no worries about responding - we all understand and just want you to recover! Good luck today~

Healing prayers continue, Wanda--and don't worry about responding back. Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving.

Lynn said...

Your do great work even with the patch! I hope you are more comfortable when the big patch is removed....Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Gypsy Quilter said...

Cherrywood fabrics must be great fun to play with. They look good no matter what pattern they are in. I surely hope your eye is healing well despite the cumbersome eye patch. You'd think with the upgrades in technology in the last 20 years, they could come up with a better solution. I hope your dad is recovering.

MrsB said...

I found you thru My Life with Critters - I am a quilter - not as fine a quilter as you are. I have been following your progress with this eye business - your grace and humor will see you thru this ordeal.

I am glad you are having "conversations" with your readers.

Sheila said...

Bless you, Wanda. Thank you for an update. Rest up. Heal. You are in my thoughts. No need to respond to my comment. Take care of yourself.

Taos Sunflower said...

You're such a trooper. I hope it all goes as easily as possible today and you are home and recovering soon. PS I love those blocks, good idea.

Here's to a GREAT day today -- traffic, weather, procedure itself, response of doctors to the state of things, more manageable traffic, and finally getting home at the end of it all.

MANY MANY hugs to you!!

Candace said...

I love this block! Especially the colors. I hope you procedure goes well, and you have a smooth speedy recovery after that. Happy Thanksgiving!

Needled Mom said...

Keeping you in my prayers today and looking forward to a speedy recovery and getting you back into full production mode.

Angel and Kirby said...

I like the wonky block! Good luck with the procedure today!

Susan R said...

Thinking of you today Wanda. And thanks so very much for your posts everyday. I am in awe of you; being an artist means that creating is like breathing no matter how you feel.

Lots of hugs.....

JJM said...

I too hope all went well today and that the mass has shrunk down to nothing. My prayers are with you. Can't get over how much you accomplish even with that clunky lead patch you had to wear. Wonky blocks are fun and look just like leather on my screen.
