SQUARE 11 addition

I was going to mention yesterday that I had something to put on the black corner patch but I had not been able to find where I had put it so didn't say anything. Well I opened a box today (a Laura Secord chocolate box for my Canadian friends) that had little flowers and bits and pieces and there was the little guy. I had bought a bunch of them at the fibre arts show in Florida last Dec. but for some reason only bought this one little guy back to Chicago. He works perfect on that corner because his colours match the ribbon colors on the lace piece.

Harv. had his surgery today and is doing very well. He will be in the hospital for a few days but he is in the new high rise addition to NW Comm. Hospital in Arlington Hts. that just opened in May. Each room is private and like a luxury hotel room. Large flat screen tv on the wall, roll in shower and the room is very large. When I was in there 2 years ago Harv could not get near me in the bed because there was not enough room for his wheelchair in the 2 bed room plus I detested having to share a bathroom with another patient. I guess I am too spoiled.

I will get to bed early tonight as I have been up at 5am for the last 2 mornings and am not used to those hours. It is hard to go to sleep early if you are not used to it but I am very tired so should be no trouble tonight.

So very glad to hear Harv is doing well.

The fellow on the black square is quite cute for a lizard. Perfect match in color.

Love the little lizard!!! I like all kinds of bugs and little animals. They always look so cute on the CQ's.
Glad Harv is doing well, you take care and get plenty of rest. We don't want you getting sick.
Hugs, Pat

Freda, I'm seeing some absolutely gorgeous crazy quilting! You really have a gift for it! I too love the lizard! I was at a fiber show a few weeks back and never saw them. Am going to another on Sat. so will have to keep my eye's open for little guys like that.

What scrumptious finds! I am glad Harv is doing well. I'm sorry I haven't been keeping up on blogs very well lately. Thank you for the well wishes for mom. She is almost ready to come home. Take care dear friend.
