I'm enchanted with the granny square quilts that are all over the web at the moment, so, brave woman that I am, I decided to make a lap quilt.
Here's what I have so far.
My Bestest BFF had a birthday recently. So I made her a project bag. I might be done with project bags for a little while now. On the other hand, I want to start an English paper pieced 60 deg. diamond quilt, so I will need yet another bag. Probably a small one to start, and then a larger one as the quilt progresses. I'll use almost any excuse to make these bags. ;-)
I'm very edgy today. My mom had a little stroke sometime in the night or this morning, and her left side was affected. She seems to have regained a bit of motion in the left arm, however. She managed to scarf down a good breakfast using her right hand. She's right-handed, which helps. Lately, she'd been using her left hand. Why? I have no idea. She's The Mommie, and that's that.
The various medical folks who visit her residence are talking about having her go into hospice. Nope, too soon for that. She's a fighter, still enjoys her life, and not in any pain or discomfort. Being her medical advocate is maybe the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I'm glad, however, that I can do it. It's a mitzvah for me to help her out at this point in her life. Very very difficult, but I know her wishes and am confident that so far, I'm doing all right with the decision-making.
scrapperjen - I kinda like the quilt, too. And those bags are beyond adorable and fun to make. I might have to make me a couple more. After all, I'm always starting new projects, so I always need new bags.
