Busy Lady

Been awhile since I have been on here, have been to Fla. twice (work) and went to the quilt show in Va. Enjoyed that very much. Sister and I went 3 days. Bought a lot on Friday and Saturday,went back on Sunday to check on something, dh drove us over and waited in car, so we didn't have to walk so far. Did any of you get to go? It was a really good show, it seemed larger this year for some reason. Could be I am just getting older and slower.
Have been back to the doctor, am going to wait 6 months to see what this lump does. He doesn't think it is any thing to worry about. I sure hope he knows what he is talking about. I definitely have mixed feelings about waiting that long. Will see what happens.
Have finally quilted (pieced) today, have all the prairie points on my baby quilt , would like to get the last border on it tomorrow, but doubt I will, am going to LQS and will probably while away some time there. If we don't have to leave (work) on a trip, maybe I can finish the top of it Thursday and then get it sandwiched. I sure would like to be through with it so I can start another one.
Happy quilting and enjoy the nicer weather we are having, hope it is nice where you are.

Happy Valentines Day Everyone

Hope everyone had a nice day today, DH and I both did, we exchanged boxes of candy and cards. We don't do much, getting a little old for all the mush. LOL
Have been back to the doctor, news not too good. Doctor found another lump in addition to the one I had found.Going tomorrow for another mammogram and a sono-gram. Dread having it done, sore from all the probing from the last 2 doctor visits. But it is necessary. Will go to Doctor on Tuesday of next week to find out the results.
Have been working on the baby quilt, it is coming along very slowly, but am getting there. DH and I are going back to Daytona, Fla. on Saturday and coming home on Monday, so will be in the truck a long time. So today I cut out some flowers to applicate on a sweatshirt. I am not much for sewing by hand, but thought that would help pass the time away. Maybe when we get home I will have that done and can take pics and post them.
Hope everyone is warm and having a great time sewing, please, keep me in your thoughts and prayers. J

back Home

Dh and I gave been in Fla. Very quick trip,went for work, will probably have to go back next Saturday, coming home on Monday, not sure yet. They never tell you anything until time to go, maybe a 24 hour notice. But we were told this when we started with them, and it is kind of exciting.The weather was beautiful. low 70's, hopefully will be thet nice next weekend.
Of course next trip for me depends on the doctor. My appt. is Tuesday, most of the time I have been able to keep my spirits up, but seem to be having a bad day today.My mind keeps playing tricks with me, but won't be too much longer and the suspence will be over and I will know what my options are.Keep me in your prayers, Please.
Obviously wasn't able to do any sewing these last few days, maybe between loads of laundry tomorrow I will get to sew some. I hope so, sewing keeps my mind occupied. Hope everyone is warm, dry and quilting.

Good evening every one, Hope everyone is warm and dry and ready for spring!!!!!!!!!Phil said an early spring, sure hope he is right.
Have been working in my sewing room today,as well as Saturday. Accomplished a little. But a little every day adds up. I finished the jeans I was Digi-Bobb-E ing on Saturday night, but took them with me to work on Sunday, and the LQS owner wanted to display them, as well as the sweatshirt I took. As soon as I go to the surgeon and see what he wants to do, I will get my class scheduled, so I can get that done. I was pleasantly surprised at all the interest I got on Sunday. So hopefully I will have several that wants to do the class.
Today, I have finished making the prarie points for the baby quilt top I am working on. Tomorrow, I plan to try to get them on the top, have never done this before so I hope it won't take too long. Am ready to get on to something else.
I appreciate the inquiries and well wishes about my health. At times I do pretty good, then others I fall apart, so am trying to keep my mind occupied.Have had a good day today.
Hope to post another quilt I have previously made,as I have said I haven't been quilting long, so really don't have much to show. Maybe I can post the quilt I am working on soon to. Will see. Keep me in your prayers. happy quilting!!!!!!!!!!!!!
