This and That, Friends in LA, French Desserts

Mel bought this beautiful quilt from Denise Schmidt 
Close up of the quilt quite wonderful
Three girlfriends giddy about a happy bday together! Such fun
Del Thomas with Mary Lou in front of the Asilomar quilt she purchased and Mary Lou made. 
We ate at a French restaurant downtown LA and the desserts were amazing. I am not eating sugar so I peeked. Yum!

The photo of the guy above is my sweet cousin Bobby Georgeson whose Mother was my Fathers older sister. He lived with our family when he was in college. Very popular with the girls, true Irish wit, and lots of fun. He always had flashy cars and  beautiful turquoise jewelry. What a guy. He died today of leukemia. There is a party in heaven with the Donahues tonight. 😀
They are collecting crosses on Facebook for a quilt for me as I will have breast surgery soon. I think these two blocks from Molly Evangelisti is quite wonderful! I adore New Mexico and words of faith! I am blessed!


  1. Mary Lou, so sad to learn of the passing of your dear cousin. He sure had a sparkle in his eye!

    Thanks, too, for sharing the wonderful treats. Sorry you can't have sugar now, but that's a good way to remember all the goodies - a photo lasts a long time - lots longer than eating them. I keep praying for you.

  2. Mary Lou, I'm sorry your cousin passed away yesterday, but I'm sure you are right about the party he is having with your family.

    The quilt Mel bought is amazing!

    I'm heading to the post office shortly to get my mini cross blocks in the mail so Michele can sew them together to wrap you in love while you recover from your upcoming surgery.

    My bra block is also making its way to your.

    Stay strong and positive, love the photo of you and Del in front of your quilt and the one of Mel, Wendy and you!

  3. So sorry to hear that you have breast cancer. I would like to send you a copy of a bra book. This was a fund raising project we did so all women could get exams. Early detection... You and I met on a quilt cruise a few years ago. Send me your address and I'll put the book in the mail. You'll love it. Hugs.

  4. I,, too, send sympathy at the loss of your sweet cousin.

    Silly me is not on FB as my techie son said it's not a safe place given their privacy policies. Is there information elsewhere about the size of the cross blocks for your quilt? I'd love to make one.

    Wishing you well with the medical challenges ahead and I share your assurance that God is holding you gently in the hollow of His hand. You're in my prayers.
