Just this morning, I finished piecing the top to my version of the Wish quilt by Bronwyn Hayes of the Red Brolly. Actually, I should have said almost finished because I still have to add an outer border and applique some additional wool elements.
I took the liberty to change a number of things and still have a ways to go before I can call it finished. My apologies for the poor photo but it is so dark and overcast today and no matter where I tried to take a picture, the light was very poor...even with the flash.
A closer look at the bottom two rows...
and the top row with the middle row repeated.
I just love the combination of stitched and pieced blocks and thoroughly enjoyed making this quilt.
Ollie was very bored with it all and fell asleep cuddling with his stuffed dog, right next to his bucket of toys.
Why turkey soup, of course! Turkey soup and fresh crusty rolls for dinner...yummo! Are ya coming?
I would like to thank those of you who emailed me with respect to the results of my latest CT scan. Unfortunately, the results weren't as positive or conclusive as we had hoped for. When the latest scan was compared with the last one from five months ago, there appeared to be an increase in the size of a couple of the lymph nodes in the general area where the cancer was found. After consulting with the radiation oncologists, it was decided to rule out a PET scan at this time. A follow up with another CT scan has been scheduled for the beginning of December. Only then will they be able to recommend further treatment if it is warranted.
I have the utmost trust and faith in my doctors and I can confidently say that they have my best interests at heart.
Life indeed does go on and I'm grateful and thankful for each and every day...especially when quilting, stitching and you all are a part of it. *wink*
