I have to say that I have been completely overwhelmed by the stories you have all shared regarding care for your elderly parents. Each one was more poignant than the next. I can't thank you enough for sharing and opening your hearts with your stories. I wish everyone the best throughout those very difficult and painful times!
My mom has been released into a nursing home. She's almost completely bed-ridden (this for a woman who swam in a swim meet and hiked miles just before she got sick) and in a lot of pain. Certainly makes for thought on choices that we want to make for ourselves as we age, I'll tell ya.
So I've done very little sewing. But, of course, we had to spend some time with our darling grandson Ryan. My daughter recently moved into a new house in San Francisco and had to temporarily part with some of the quilts I have given her over the years. She made a couple of piles in her kitchen of the ones she CAN'T part with and Ryan has made himself very comfortable on them!!
The quilt I made for his birth is the blue/white 9-patch on top!
I hope to be able to share more quilting related stuff this week.
How are your farmer's wife blocks coming along?? You have an extra week until the next installment so lots of time to catch up and/or make a second set!! There are definitely a few over-achievers out there! And you know who you are!! VBG
Love to you all,
