The Letter X - Scatterdays

(I have to post a day early as it is the long weekend and I won't be at the computer.)
 Hidden - X-RAYS
For the life of me, I couldn't find the latest films to take to the specialist.
Sat up in bed one morning, there they were, tucked in between the 2 chest of drawers.
My specialist has finally admitted to me, after 3 years of terrible hip pain that it needs replacing.
Will have it done after our holiday.

 Famous- XANADU
Olivia Newton John was in the movie and every time I think of her, I think of John Travolta.
Unfortunately he wasn't part of it. 

"Drought tolerant, plants that store water in their leaves, stems or roots."
We have a house near us, their whole front garden is planted with these plants.
The garden is very well laid out, but the man who owns it, is always watering them, footpath and his driveway.
Hasn't he heard, we still need to save our precious water.

Crosses in a quilt
I made a Dear Hannah quilt, all hand pieced and hand quilted.
Dear Hannah is like Dear Jane, but it is a row smaller each way and every alternate block is appliqued. 
I used Civil War and Reproduction fabrics.


  1. Great collection of Xes! I particularly love your X-blocks. That whole quilt looks fantastic.

    I hope the hip replacement will bring you great relief.

  2. And I forgot to mention - you can schedule posts to publish some time in the future if you want. Under "Post Settings" on the right-hand side in the editor, select "Schedule" and you can click on any date and time you like.

  3. I hope your hip does not interfere with your holiday, and I hope the hotels have lifts. Liked your X collection

  4. I love xeroscaping! Your John Travolta pic is a delightful stretch from Xanadu. LOL. Good luck with your hip replacement.

  5. Looks like I'm the only one who wimped out on the x challenge. You will love it after you have your hip replacement.... only pain (long term)is the exercises for life :(

  6. Also wanted to say I love your quilt...but typing function was playing up

  7. The entire quilt must be superb as the four blocks are beautiful. The plants are a very interesting category. You will love your new hip very quickly. Hope the surgery goes well.

  8. super X's, love the quilt. Hope the hip behaves.

  9. Good luck with the surgery. Love all your X's. Beautiful quilt.

  10. I really enjoy seeing the items you come up with for Scatterdays. I had a giggle when I saw you "x-ray storage". It is the same as ours.
    I look forward to seeing you dance on the table tops at Guild after your hip replacement!!!!

  11. Congratulations on that quilt. Well done with scatterdays
