Yes! Finely

i finished something!!! granted it's small, but brad's bath mat is finely done! what next? i decided to do the tacking of the binding of drew and laura's sisters choice quilt by machine, i am using a decorative stitch on it. i was going to do the tacking by hand, but the quilt just sat here for 2 weeks and i did nothing. this morning i decided to take my own advice, "done is better than perfect" so its now on my machine.

larry is tired today, says he is planning to get lots of naps. he probably could if the phone wouldn't keep waking him up. speaking of larry he just said he is i am going to get him something to eat

this week

has been very non productive. our home has been a constant flow of visitors for larry,
and constant phone calls checking up on him. he has had a very rough time the last 3
days. i have had so little time and am so behind keeping the home front caught up.
right now he is my priority...not house work or my quilting.

every day i have a list of a couple of quilty things i want to do...but for now they will
only get done during the good times.

a new friend for larry

my friend margaret brought a new friend for
larry...this is kayla. kayla is about 10 months old,
a lab and hound X. beautiful puppy.

acually, larry and i are in the picture too!! larry
is the grey legs in brown recliner and i am blue
legs directly behind kayla.

dd brandy took the picture with her cell. kayla
has stolen our hearts...and taken over about 1/2
of our living room. thankyou margaret!

larry has had lots of company since he has been
on hospice so very little sewing has been done.
and kayla ofcoarse, gets her share of my attention...she is big but still a puppy! lots of trips
outside. maybe tomarrow i will get bath mat #2 finished. i just started quilting it today and
it got so busy around here so it is still just barely started.

this is all i have accomplished this week

and i already had the center stars done!!!
these 5 blocks are for a swap i am in. the quilt pattern is "galexy of stars and scraps" these
friendship star blocks will alternate with an
eight pointed star block. now i have to do
5 eight pointed star blocks for the swap. i know this is just a start...the quilt takes 24 friendship star blocks and 25 of the 8 pointed star blocks.
they are not hard its just that time is a little
short right now.

larry has had all kinds of company plus getting
all the hospice stuff set up. it seems like so
many people here all the time. but, so much
better for him to know how loved he is.

margaret is coming today bringing a dog for larry. he has been lost since this winter we had
to put his last dog down. she had cancer and was in a lot of pain. i hope he and kayla truely
bond...oops time to start something for him to eat.

larry update

larry is now on Hospice...the dr's have decided that more treatment will do
more damage at this time to his general health than benifit. he agreed. his
metasisized tumors in the "good" lung are growing like gang busters. the goal now
is quality of life. he is relieved that he no longer has to go out for treatments.

good thoughts and prayers are apprieciated

a quick update

i have not posted in a timely manner...larry has had some scary changes and we spent over
8 hours in the local ER and have appointments today and monday to find what is going on.

they think it is cancer progressing, ther were X rays and CT scans...checking for blood clots
in his lungs, there were none. larry went from potsing around the house even doing a flight of steps several times a day to almost no activity. any activity definately affects his O2 level.

i am scared, there is nothing i ca do to make it all better. around him i keep my chin up
and try to keep normal activity up in fact to day i will be putting binding on my sisters choice
quilt if i change my activity it scares him which makes things worse for him. i am so
glad i brought a sewing machine up to the living room so i can keep him company
and let him see normal activity.

bath mat #1 done

well, here is the first bathmat finely done.
i echo quilted it with black. i think i like the silly thing. when i did mine i just free motioned it.
so far today i have done well, got the sisters choice quilt turned so now i can quilt the other half. i am waiting a day or 2 before i quilt the
other bath mat i do not do a lot of quilting on the
DM so when i do i am tense and my shoulders hurt. i'm gonna give my shoulders a break.
its been a quiet day here, larry had a bad night so we are both taking it easy. all i am going to do now is some mindless piecing...or maybe curl up with a good book. ann
