Island Batik Four Seasons Blog Hop

Today is the first day of the Four Seasons Blog Hop with all of the Island Batik Ambassadors, on Wednesday I’ll be sharing my quilt project made with Alphine Ice. There will be lots of giveaways and beautiful projects shared during the blog hop. Be sure to visit the ambassadors that are sharing their Four Seasons quilts each day by clicking on the links below. Island Batiks is also doing a giveaway on their blog that you’ll want to enter also.

The flu bug hit Builder Bob hard on New Years Day and he was in bed for 3 days. Being the sweet and kind guy that he is……he shared it with me. Yesterday was the first day that I have felt good since catching it last Thursday which is why I have been silent. I sure hope we are done with the flu for the year. The interesting thing about it was that Builder Bob got his flu shot and I didn’t. I actually think he was sicker than me, mine just lingered a little longer.

ShuffleBoard Table being built by Bob

Builder Bob is back working on his party room project. Our basement/garage party room should be done by spring. Can you guess what he is building? A shuffleboard table that is 14 foot long! We just ordered the Shuffleboard pucks from Amazon.

  1. Loved seeing the Queen of Hearts pillow tutorial ,they look beautiful,lovely and bright fabrics, would love to have a go with my Go Cutter ,I haven’t used it for ages. Not a lot of quilting done for a while but back into it now. I lost you for a while but you are found again.

  2. Oh Connie I wish you hadn’t said that! One just doesn’t know which strain of the various flus either of you got. The flu shot protects from a variety and they one for this year missed the prevalent strain. When people who didn’t get the “shot” don’t get sick they take all the credit but let one person who got vaccinated get sick…
    My middle daughter contracted whooping cough at 3 years old – even though she’d been vaccinated – and if she had a mild case I don’t ever want to see it full-blown. It’s the same with any of the diseases we vaccinate for.

  5. I’ve heard of so many with the flu after the flu shot. Guess it was not a great match this year. Glad you are feeling a bit better now.

    I love those heart pillows. They would be so pretty for Valentine’s Day decorating.
