Amidst all the other chaos going on, I brought Sara and Samantha along with me to pick up my latest quilt from the professional quilter. We had a great visit and I love this picture of happy Samantha talking with her Daddy on the phone. He is a long distance truck driver and has been away for awhile. One time that having cell phones makes life a lot easier.
I'm very pleased with the quilting for this quilt. It is a wedding gift for the niece of a dear friend. The stitching shows off beautifully on the light green Kaffe Fassett fabric. If you look closely you can see that there are pale magenta interlocked circles on the green fabric. I'll get more photos this weekend when I can photograph it outside.
With the back folded over you get a view of the crazy striped border and a glimpse of one square which has partying cats on it....Ms G appears in a yellow outfit with matching orange hat!!

The binding is about 3/4 attached and should be finished this weekend. I hope they will love this as much as my friends, Jeff and Laurie love their quilt. I so love the process of hand sewing that I find myself slowing down as a project comes to an end, in order to prolong the joy of holding the fabric in my hands, and feeling its warmth across my lap.

My health challenge continues. The TN symptoms abated over night after a dose of the anti-seizure med but now I have huge swollen glands, sore throat and an earache on the other side. Saw the doctor today and she ruled out the presence of infection. Next step is to be tested for Lyme's disease but we both highly doubt that is present. It could all just be related to the flare of TN. I'm going forward as though nothing is wrong and making the most of each day, as healthily as possible.

Today, the contractors are putting new windows in LM's bedroom. It will make such a difference in appearance and also in heat savings this winter.
Off to the land of LM and Ms G after work....can't wait. We are going to take a long walk tonight....not Ms G, of course.

Have a lovely weekend. I feel the same way about my cross stitch projects--I love that first stitch put into clean, crisp fabric and then I don't want it to ever end.
