It seems like a long time since I last posted, but it's not because I had nothing to say, I just have had a lot to do. Life happens. Today my Dad called with his biopsy results, & he has lung cancer. His attitude is good & he is still working & in pretty good shape for the shape he is in at 90. I hope to get home to see him again some time soon.
The hand is feeling better, but a bit encumbered by the brace I have to wear to avoid the pain that happens when the tendon snaps when I move my thumb. I actually screamed a couple of times in the shower yesterday while washing my hair. LOL...it's better than crying!
We are getting ready to go to Rhode Island this weekend to visit family & go to MQX East. I'm excited about the blogging friends I'll finally get to meet face to face. I'm sure we'll all be blogging about it.
I have been working on a few small projects & a customer quilt, as time & pain allowed. I finished this little Chickadee for Marsel, who won the drawing for my 600th blog. You'll have to wait to see the whole thing until she gets it in the mail.
This is Wendy Trasky's quilt, that I finished quilting & binding today. She made it for a new grandson.
The green swirl fabric gave me fits, with skipped stitches. The Milsoft suggestion from Deb Levy seemed to help quite a bit. Once I had sprayed it with a mix of Milsoft & water the skipping wasn't as bad. Thanks again Deb!
Spring-breakup seems to have arrived here in Alaska. The days are bright & warm (in the 40's).
Snow is melting, though still a good foot or two deep in our yard & on the deck. Broc seems to be bothered a bit by the sunlight, but I am enjoying it, & looking forward to seeing green in New England.
