A Quilting Day and A Patient Update

First the patient update—he is impatient—he was still running a temp this afternoon late but this evening feels as if he is turning the corner.  He has done little but go from couch to bed, bed to couch.  About 6:30 tonight he did get out and take a stroll with Emmi and me.

It was a quilting day and I can spill the beans now.  Remember all the days before Christmas when I would talk about the Christmas project I was working on?  Rollie asked me to make Gina a quilt in honor of their 30th wedding anniversary—after seeing photos of their bedroom in Louisiana I elected to make my first ever wholecloth quilt and my first ever bed runner—a narrow quilt which is draped across the foot of the bed.

Rollie and Gina were thrilled with the outcome, Gina was totally surprised and I could not have been more pleased with the results.

IMG_5742I was so pleased with the way it turned out, I want to make some more wholecloth quilts!

I spent most of the day working on my little steering wheel table topper and am now hand sewing the binding down.  We watched a movie late this afternoon—from the Thurston Blockbuster collection—Hope Springs with Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones.  Let’s just say this movie wasn’t one of Meryl Streep’s best—it had funny parts but sure didn’t hold my interest!

Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve, 2012 is about to be history and we have sure changed lifestyles in 2012!  It will be exciting to see what 2013 brings!
