Stuff I did (during my two month reprieve)


I made about eight quilts, and this one is Michelle's. I finished up projects I hadn't touched since our fun brush with cancer six years ago. In fact, I'd been superstitious that finishing the projects would result in a return of The Cancer. I'm happy to say that [so far] I was wrong.

Maybe I'll get ambitious and photograph the remaining four quilts I haven't posted yet. It felt good to hold a camera again, to enjoy the beauty in the small things. Which is almost as good as it felt to eat a cookie bar and ice cream last night. It doesn't take much to make me happy.

Phonetic spelling is my favorite:

Translation:
Do not disturb mom
Knock first
Mom does not feel good

She did it all by herself.

Quilting while one is perfectly healthy is something I don't quite understand, but to accomplish EIGHT complete quilts WHILE ILL?

You amaze me is all. Hope things start looking up for you girl

That quilt is AMAZING! I am so impressed!

I hope you start feeling better very soon. Your daughter is sweet, but that makes sense because she is yours and you are one of the sweetest people I know.
