Only eight days in the hospital this time and now we are home, again! Actually, I brought Dad home Friday afternoon. I am so behind in posting, mostly 'cause I've been more tired than I can ever remember. But, after sleeping some yesterday and taking my time this morning, I am feeling much better. I think Dad is feeling even better than I am! LOL While with him this afternoon, I couldn't wait for him to say he was ready for a nap, and he never did! He walked and ate a late lunch then sat and played the guitar for me. I was crocheting and all I wanted to do was sleep! lol His blood work came back looking very, very good this afternoon. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.
In the meantime, I've been working on this green Simply Shell Afghan. I like the pink one so much that I just had to do it in this luscious green yarn. I'm afraid the picture doesn't do it justice. I don't know if I posted that the pink afghan won a blue ribbon at the county fair and was seriously considered for Best of Show. A cross stitch picture beat it out of that, though. That's ok. I'm just excited one of my projects was even considered!
This pink ribbon quilt top was made last year when Deborah and I went to Oklahoma for an all day retreat at a LQS. I made a mistake in placing the colors, so I have not wanted to do anything with it. But, now that I look at it, I really like how it looks. So, I'm going to finish it and give it to a gal that used to clean house for me. We found out this week that she is going to have a double mastectomy due to breast cancer. I want her to know I'm thinking of her.
I picked up my Bernina today but haven't had a chance to try it out. I'm going to situate it on my dining room table so I can do some "serious" quilting, I told my husband! LOL "Uh oh," he said. Yup, that means the dining room will be trashed for a while but that's ok. It's the only place I have right now with room for a big quilt to "flow" while I quilt it.
Time to get dinner on the table. Sorry for not checking in sooner. Please pray that Dad continues to do well.
