Spring Break


Can't take any more pictures of ice and snow so here's how I wish it looked. Really, the icky stuff is almost gone and we have now entered the gray and brown phase. Colors will appear soon-but for the time all is gray and brown with a side of dirty snow. Bleah.....
Sorry I have been a poor blogger lately-several things going on that just took time away from it. No sewing going on & too many Dr.s appts. Hubby is still getting up at dawn to make early physical therapy appts for his shoulder-the son had an appt this week to touch base with our new and wonderful Family Dr.-- Love him! We all love him. I had to have the mamo re-done and then a sonogram to make sure. Apparently I not only have large boobage-but it is also very dense(shut up) Anyway!!!! Tah Dah!!!! Happy to say all is clear and fine. Phew...
My brother is coming to visit this weekend and bringing my adorable 11 year old niece so I must clean the house since I don't want to scar the child for life with the horror.
I started to put the heart donation quilt and backing in a package to mail to DebG. yesterday when I noticed that one of the heart appliques was coming away from the surrounding fabric. I will fix it as soon as I can and ship it off next week. Sorry about that Deb.
Well, I must be off to do battle with scrubbers and sponges and vacuums Oh My! I got 2 interesting books from the Library this week-One is called "Private Lives of the Impressionists" and the other is "The Yellow House" and that is about Van Gogh and Gauguin and there brief time together in said house. Maybe because my mind has been too distracted to concentrate this week-I'm having trouble getting into them. They are both such interesting subjects but seem to be written by veddy, veddy, serious arty types(read dry and boring). I thought it would be full of great stuff about the artists and their....welll...private lives. Nah, so far they are so dry I have trouble keeping my eyes open. The Van Gogh is better than the other but not much. Like I said, maybe it's just the mood this week. I'll give them another shot next week. Sorry for the lack of quilty stuff-I'll give that a better shot next week as well.
See you soon

I did battle with the vacuum and mop and duster today, too. My shield is dented and my sword arm is sore, but yay it's done! It's a big house, but it's actually very easy to clean. Don't tell Jim. I'm lobbying for a housecleaner.

Love the flowers!!! So fragile and yet so bold.

Hurray for your results at the Doc's!!! A celebration is needed, don't you think?!

So happy to hear the good Dr. results. I cried today when I watched the Edward's news conference. So sad that Elizabeth's cancer is back. They are such a dynamic duo.

So happy for you that your results were good! We have such a bad history of breast cancer in my family.
I just love the quilt you made for Molly and the great gift bag you packed it in. She ought to feel loved and cozy wrapped in Feathers.

Don't worry about the timeing on the quilt- send it when you can. I'll manage to keep busy until it gets here!! :-)

I wouldn't worry about the content of your blog this week- at least you are blogging! It has been weeks for me- I fell off the horse and can't seem to muster it up to get back on. Phooey.
Congrats on the good results! I agree that a party is in order! Happy day!
LB, who also has huge, dense boobage, and knows this is really something to celebrate (umm, not the boobage, but the results, though I can think of worse things to celebrate than boobage. Maybe it is bedtime, hmm?).
