Rosa and I were recently at the Attic Window Quilt Shop to do a little sewing and gabbing and giggling.  We laughed and said we should start the RFC (Rosa Fan Club). Above, Rosa sews away at her machine…. 
…While I did some appliqué.  I need 20 of these blocks, so you may be seeing them for a while. 
My cry for help.  Remember this picture?  I first showed it to you here.  I realized last week that I have not seen that appliqué block for a long time.  I think September is the last time I can remember working on it.  I know I was at the shop when I last sewed on it.  I was just wondering if anyone has found this block laying around someplace at the shop?  Or perhaps, since we are working so closely, gotten it mixed up with your things.  I'm really great at just laying something down and then forgetting about it. I’m getting older and though I have looked over and over all through my sewing room, I bet it will show up there in a most unexpected place.  I just thought I’d put a shout out, just in case.
