Quilted

Thank you all for your concern about Keith. It’s been a challenging day for him but he’s taken it easy and rested. Hopefully his antiviral meds will kick in soon. Poor thing, his birthday is tomorrow. What a terrible way to celebrate.

Before my dentist appointment I did manage to quilt my first Strips and Strings log cabin top and even got it trimmed and ready for binding. I also made a few blocks for the 3rd strips and strings log cabin quilt and there are just 8 blocks left to make for that one.

I quilted a leafy meander – freehand.

Some leaves are funky and some look like hearts but I’m OK with that.

After my dentist appointment, I went to the grocery store, carted all the groceries in and put them away, cooked dinner, cleaned up, and took the garbage out. Keith is a very good patient and not difficult to care for at all but MAN do I realize how much he helps around here when he’s out of commission. He usually grocery shops and cleans up after dinner.

  1. Your leafy free hand quilting is really nice, sure wish I could free hand better. I use pantographs on all my really nice tops and use a meander on others.

  2. Definitely hope those meds kick in for Keith so he feels some relief. Love that leafy quilting – it has some real elegance to it.

  3. Shingles around the eye is very dangerous! Glad you got him to urgent care, and received meds. And it is SO uncomfortable. I hope he feels better soon.

  4. Your quilt is beautiful! I love all the colors! My husband, a pharmacist, took valacyclovir for his shingles. He also said maybe gabapentin or Lyrica might help Keith. Maybe he is on those now. Anyway, I hope he feels better soon!

  5. Mary, sorry to here that Keith is sick. It is nice that he is so helpful. Hope his pain is under control.
