Karyn: 😂😉 This husband has a 5 car garage for his "stuff" and I have a 3000 sq. ft. House for mine. Hahaha. I have a sewing house. 

Gina: love those fabrics!  This why I can't bear to part with fabrics to organize my sewing rooms.

Sheri M.

The colors you picked are what I have had in mind for this mystery. Finally get to go shopping tonight or tomorrow! I am hoping to get close to caught up next week, if I can get my hand to cooperate.

I lost my mom to ovarian cancer.  She had previously had a hysterectomy years before and left her ovaries ... same situation.  I was told that most of the time it's at stage 3 or worse and is a silent killer.   I'm glad your aunt was able to identify that she carries the gene.  It is only detectible in about 50% of the cases.  I had the CA125 level checked in my blood and it ran so low (between 1 and 3)  that insurance won't even conver getting the test as there are no other symptoms.   I was told I could still have cancer and not have it show up that way.  You can also get cancer after a hysterectomy unless they do a 'radical' which is what they did with my cousin who had uterine cancer. I finally decided (I really have no choice) that I couldn't obsess over it and just try and watch out for any of the 'small' indicators.

Stay aware folks and pay attention to your body.  I suggest you hope on the ovarian cancer website and read about the suttle indicators.

So, I have been diligently making HSTs and as I feared...I'm running out of fabrics 1 & 2.  I have plenty of background fabric, so I will be doing some creative thinking to see how to compensate for the fabric shortage.  I put together HSTs for fabrics 1 & 2 and have the correct amount for those.  I will put together equal numbers of background/fabric 1 and background/fabric 2 HSTs and go from there once we get further instructions on Sept 27.

I'm seeing HSTs in my dreams...literally! LOL

I also wanted to use stash fabrics, but I'm not sure they will be Tranquil!

Tone on tone white for the background, solid blue and blue print for fabrics 1 and 2.

Will it matter which one is fabric 1 and which is fabric 2?

Tami Paul, maybe you should save the fabric and in a few years sell it as antique, lol.
