I’ve been absent. April was a blur, a complete and utter blur. Dad was in the hospital, I had my annual veterinary dermatology conference, got sick, fought it for a week, then it turned into pneumonia and for the first time in my entire life I missed a full week of work. To say I’m over it…well, that might just be an understatement 🙂 I am finally starting to feel better, but my energy is low and I’m left with this wheezing cough. My albuterol inhaler is my new BFF. It became even more difficult now that my old golden boy is having some real issues. We’re not sure if it’s orthopedic or neurologic, or a combination of the two, but I know hard decisions are ahead and I’m dreading the day. Why can’t they live as long as we do? So frustrating, especially as a veterinarian when you feel you should at least be able to fix your own… We spent some time in the grass just enjoying the sun yesterday. Moments like these are precious.
So, let’s play a little catch up. Here’s what I managed to accomplish this last month. Not a lot, but still progress 🙂 I finished my April Farmer’s Wife blocks. I actually beat Mom this month, lol. I think she still has one to finish.
In other news, the Montana quilt (LONG on my list of WIPs) is finally pieced…Pinned (thank you Moose for all the help…)And ready to quilt 🙂I have high hopes for getting some quilting done today. At least the stitch in the ditch part to secure some seams, that is if I can get the cats off of it long enough. This beast is 74×100. It’s the biggest one I’ve ever tried to quilt at home and the first quilt I’ve ever pin basted versus spray basted. We’ll see how it goes. I anticipate getting irritated with having to continually stop and unpin. I know it’s going to take a while to quilt though and trying to maneuver it for spray basting was going to be a bear.
Here’s wishing everyone a peaceful week!
