Q&A with Darlenedino

banjolady asked:
Top marks to Jana and to you for encouraging and helping her with it. I love the heart block and would like to see a close up of it to see how it's done. The colours are gorgeous
Darlenedino answered:
I posted a picture of teh heart block. You can see it is really just two strip scrap rectangles, then I just kep adding fabric until it was a square.
Gog asked:
What a great way to bond, may you share many more projects - 2013 BOM perhaps?
Darlenedino answered:
yes, I hope so. My granddaughter is having a spinal fusion on 12/12. It was discovered she had a birth defect which is causing one of her disc to slip off the top of the other. She will be in a brace for at least 3 months, and hopefully totally recovery in six months. I think we will watch the videos and decide what she feels up to doing. We might get a later start, but we are both excited about the prospect.
Gog asked:
All good wishes to you and Jana, I am sure you and your family will be in the thoughts of all the BOMers. What about a bucket bag to keep all her items close at hand or one of the zip pouches? Now, if Craftsy could do a course in fitting extra hours in a day what a help that would be!
Darlenedino answered:
good idea, I know she will start to get restless once she starts to recovery.
Ladycamper asked:
Best wishes for Jana's surgery., and a speedy recovery. All your quilting friends will be thinking of you both.
Darlenedino answered:
Thanks very much
