Wednesday was not an easy day and I sure am happy that’s behind me.
I am so grateful to have very caring and compassionate doctors who are genuinely concerned about my well being. They have put a rush on everything and I’m hoping to have the results from the two biopsies by Wednesday of next week. Thank you all for your kind words and support. They are making my trip down this unknown road so much easier.
You guys are the best!
In my last post, I had these grandiose ideas of being able to complete the piecing of a Civil War nine patch quilt before my surgery. As you can see below, I did get a start on it…
and the rest of the nine patch and setting blocks were waiting patiently beside my machine for me to continue. However, on Sunday…
Frankie…as in Frank Sinatra…AKA 'old blue eyes’…arrived!
Everything came to a screeching halt!
Frankie is a three month old seal point Siamese kitten and he’s
Mac is being such a sport about it and apart from a few introductory swats and hisses, they are now co-existing really well.
Then, and in anticipation of my brother coming to visit sometime in August, we decided that it was time we did something with the spare room.
Until now, it has been used as a catch-all and a place to put everything that we just hadn’t found a home for…including the last 4 boxes that are still waiting to be unpacked. *sigh*
Not only is it the smallest of the four upstairs bedrooms but because of the dormer and sloped ceiling, we decided to go with a single bed in order to be able to include some other furniture in there as well. I made the quilt on the bed a few years ago which you can read about HERE.
We picked up the bed yesterday and the decorating has only just begun.
There are still pictures to be hung, quilts to be piled on the bench, braided rugs to be scattered on the floor and a few other touches to give it a lived in feeling.
Oh, and the other distraction as to why my piecing was put on hold was because my new Bolivar wool cutter arrived! Isn’t it a beauty?
So, while the little fur baby is napping, I’m tip-toeing off to the studio to see if I can get a few more rows done.
