These last couple of months have been filled with blood work, tests, exams and unmentionables.
I'm going to try not to bore you with mundane details. I'm just sharing that its new to me and has been good and bad. First with the good. I just heard back that the genetic disease that my brother and mother have, does not effect me! I've been holding my breath for quite awhile waiting to hear about these results. Yesterday I was over joyed to get the news. I even shed a tear or two of joy, just a tear or two.
And speaking of tears, that's another issue but we are working on this. Lets just say I have now joined the group of daily med users. But it's a good thing so far and I have my fingers crossed that my energy, ambition and strength will return along with my hormones.
Now for some quilting news. I haven't done much but I have started a project. All others have fallen into a box and have been stacked in a corner.
But back to the new project. I've set a deadline for next Monday to be finished with a new top. Why Monday? Because I'm determined to have it finished before the end of the year and Monday is my last day. Tuesday I will be going in for a out patient surgery, my first ever. I'm not sure how I'll feel and I think having a beautiful quilt top will cheer me up and make me feel better.
This quilt is made from leftovers of my cousins wedding quilt. I've have a box of two inch squares taking up too much room in my sewing space and I want them out of my way!
This pattern came from a picture I saw in the "Keepsake Quilting" catalog. I believe it's called "Nantucket".
I just used those two inch squares and drafted my pattern from there.
I love it so much I'm going to keep it! It'll be beautiful with all my cobalt glass. I may even redecorate to display it. But we will see how much energy I have in the new year.
Anyhow, being as this is the day before Christmas, I sincerely wish you all a happy, blessed week and a very happy New Year!
Take care, Brandie
