Yesterday I took this photo of the beautiful Dianthus flowers that I have growing in my yard. I have them sitting on a table topper that I just finished for AccuQuilt. You’ll see it on their blog next month.
Believe it or not, I have been quilting….this is a baby quilt I’ll be sharing soon. It seems like all of the quilt projects I have been working on lately are for posts I won’t be sharing for a bit. I have 4 more quilt projects to finish before I get caught up……..actually make that 5 quilts and projects!
I have been absent from my blog for the last few days as I have been spending my time at the hospital with my dad.
Thank you for all of the emails many of you have sent, he is finally doing better. It is hard to believe it has been 14 days since I took him to the emergency room with a bowel obstruction.
They waited 5 days hoping the problem would resolve on its own before they operated on Saturday. Dad is 84, has had stints, a heart valve replacement and a pacemaker. After the surgery, he went into A-Fib so now that is added to his list, poor guy!
The tubes and monitors are slowly being removed and yesterday they started him on a liquid diet. Hopefully, soon he will be well enough to come home. Since our house is raised because we are on the river he has to be able to climb 20 steps first.
The Mississippi River is still rising but so far we shouldn’t have to worry about flooding getting close to our house. That is a relief!
I don’t do well when my routine is changed, it just throws off my schedule……anyone else like that? I apologize for my lack of posts. I can’t wait to just spend some time in my quilt room…..playing!
One more photo…..you know I love photos! I haven’t had a chance to write a post saying that I am an Aurifil Artisan this year! I can’t wait to get a box of goodies from Aurifil!
