Today, I had a visit at my Oncologist. It was a great appointment. The bloodwork looks good and I don't have to go back for ONE YEAR and I don't have to have another colonoscopy for FIVE YEARS! As we say in Texas "YEE HAW". I believe, without a doubt, that this is God working in my life. As the graphic above says "God will make a day." He always does. I'm so grateful and blessed.
Thru quilting, I met the neatest lady, Monica the Button Counter. She is so talented, witty, and just plain fun to be around. She decided to do something with all the old koozies she had stored in a box. She covered a koozie that is perfect for a quilter. The pictures aren't that great, but here they are. It is MUCH cuter in person. See the photo below. It says "Kathy's Cool, Little Padded Can". I appreciate her referring to my "can" as little -- LOL.
Another lady I met thru quilting is Rosie. She is a prolific stitcher. I purchased the following pattern from her and have been working on it off/on the past couple of years. When going out of town last weekend, I took it with me to work on and it renewed my desire to do stitcheries. It is near completion. I have been drooling over the "Nice People Nice Things" blog. The quilt that Helen created the pattern and it is great. I love the lettering and all the little pictures. I ordered the patterns and then, of course, I needed embroidery thread. The thread I have is from long ago cross-stitch days. I ordered Prescenia threads from my friend, Rosie. Everything came today -- YEA! It was like Christmas! Now to get some background fabrics cut and get started. This will be a great "take along" project.
