BLQB blocks and john update

I am finally caught up on my blocks for the Busy Little Quilting Bee.

This block is for Jenny who is making two quilts for her daughters. This is for her daughter who likes diamonds and giraffes. I was going to try to add more diamonds, but those little suckers are tricky!



This block is for Betty who requested triangles. I basically drew out on a plain piece of paper how I wanted it to look and then just paper pieced the triangles. This could probably get really addicting.



These two blocks are for Valerie who is making two quilts for her family room. She sent all these gray and yellow fabrics and I think it quickly becoming one of my new favorite color combination.





I also wanted to give a quick update on John. He had a PET scan on Monday and we were really pleased (and relieved) by the results. He only has one remaining "lesion" and the scan showed that it is slightly smaller and less "intense" since he last scan. So he can continue with his normal treatment and by next week he'll be down to one doctor's appointment a week instead of the two he's been having. Very exciting stuff!
