I even managed to deliver a Quilt of Valor this week. Awarded to the husband of a high school friend:



That's all for tonight!

Quilt Bindings

I seem to have a backlog of quilts to be bound. One of my favorite things to do. This should keep me busy for a little while!



Happy stitching!

It's All Quiet Here

I love this quiet time. Hubby has gone to bed and it's peaceful. Not that he is loud, just that the tv stays on one channel. No channel serving for this girl!

Where to start.....last July I had a not so good mammogram. I went back for further testing. With the results from the films, my surgeon decided to do a surgical biopsy. It really wasn't bad at all. She said she removed the suspicious area and more tissue around it. I was back in full swing by the end of the week. Fast forward to January 2017, I go back for a mammogram to see if everything is still ok. Nope...."need further evaluation". I opted for an MRI. Let me tell you...it was interesting. Forty minutes in a booming tube. Results...."need further evaluation" On to the next procedure. Needle biopsy....you guessed it..."need further evaluation. This time my surgeon had to tell me that the biopsy had shown cancer cells. That was last Thursday. On Monday she removed the lump (about the size of a pea) and four lymph nodes from under my armpit. I am three days post-op. The biggest pain seems to be coming from under my arm. I go back again next Tuesday to see my surgeon for lab results from this procedure... Thinking positively. It will be what it is. I told my surgeon that we need to stop meeting like this. She said I was stuck with her for 5 years and a mammogram every 6 months. Also will do radiation treatments, five weeks at 5 days per week. And then there is always the fun thought of taking a hormone suppressant drug for 5 years.

On the quilt front, I have two Quilts of Valor ready to be delivered to two high school classmates of my husband. And my long arm quilter has given me 8 quilts back to be bound. Good thing I love to bind!

So that's it for this girl. Looking forward to make more quilts as fast as I can!
