We've had a tough week or so. Really, things sort of turned sour for Wendell with the new year. Long story short after a wearing a heart monitor and having a stress test, they decided he needed a heart cath. Did that last week. They found one small blockage but inserted no stent at the time. He's having an MRI this week to determine if a stent would help. So more stressful waiting to see what they find and decide they want to do. Well, really, it's me getting stressed out; he just goes about his days really relaxed. Wish I could do that. Today for instance, while I was doing the flower bed thing he was repairing one of the mowers and tried out his new chain saw. I try to keep very busy -- hooking, sewing, cleaning, reading. Some days I do better than others. If I stay calm I can force myself to live for the day and not for tomorrow. Wow ... way too much about this, right?
I said previously I went to the Bloomington Quilt Show in early March and promised pictures. So many great quilts were displayed there! I had a tough time deciding which quilt to vote for as my "viewer's favorite". I'm in the middle of working on two quilts at the same time, rotating from one to the other. I sort of like it that way; you don't get tired of either of them! Just me ... So going to this show really has kept me inspired. Hope you enjoy seeing just a little piece of what I saw that day ...
|This was judged "Best of Show". Very nice. Tons of detail. Better in person than in this picture. It's wall hanging size. Just gorgeous!|
|I really was taken with this wall hanging, too. If you'll look at the close-up photo below, you'll see why ...|
|Close-up of wall hanging above ... Wow!|
|I wasn't taken with the colors used in this quilt, but I love this geometric design ... Future project?|
|These three little gems were my favorites of a special display of 8"x10" mini-quilts they hung along a hallway. Just little works of art. I think there were about 25 of them in all! I was impressed!|
Wish us luck at the hospital this Friday. God is so good to us. Why do I keep worrying? (It's my job!)
