Memory Quilt

This is the quilt I've been working on for a couple of months. A friend asked me if I could do anything with her father's ties, so this is what I came up with. Way more work than I thought it would be. I found a website that makes these for $790.00 for a 57" x 57" size. This quilt is 75" x 94.5". Super glad that it's finished. Just hoping the person that gets it will like it.

Good News!

Just got home from the doctor's office. Sara had an MRI last week and then we left for Columbus together. So this week she returned for her results. The doctor is still puzzled by the numbness she is experiencing in her leg, but the MRI was just fine! No ruptured disc, No back surgery! They discussed her options and decided to try a shot of cortisone. Within a couple of hours she said she was feeling better. I sure hope this works for her.

To celebrate the good news I took her to her favorite Vera Bradley retail store. Yep, she is now the proud owner of yet another Vera Bradley tote. You can see it here.

Our cable/internet provider is coming to our home tomorrow. Our internet is seriously horrible. I've never seen it this bad. Hoping they can get things back on track.

Wicked, Wicked, Wicked

My daughter and I had wonderfully Wicked weekend! I drove to Columbus on Friday so that we could go see the play "Wicked" on Saturday. It was truly amazing. Our seats were in the Loge only four rows back. We could see everything. I think that Sara really enjoyed the play too. It was our first play together.

On Friday we went to a favorite quilt shop of mine, Quilt Trends. It is a great place to shop and get new ideas. They have so many beautiful quilts on display. It's amazing I didn't gain weight from all the eye candy.

On Saturday before the play, we went to a second quilt store. Quilt Beginnings in Bexley. About half the store is devoted to sewing machines. The fabric was lovely. I think I showed a little restraint this time. I did buy a few things. I'll try to add pictures the next time. I still haven't unpacked my car.
