Sandra over at mmm quilts has given us another fantastic quilt along. this year it is called " Centred" and that is what we all need to focus on, wherever we live.
My flimsy is done, and when I started this, had a totally different colour selection. However the dark fabric ran out, so I decided on the current teals and blues.
This is not as Sandra had hers, the darker teal strips dividing off the outer blocks was to be white, but I didn't have anything pale enough, so chose to go the other way.
This is the first lot I did, and maybe one day will add to them and have a second "Centred".
I do like blues and greens, but the pink is a good change.
Then, as you need to have another project on the go, I have this dinky pattern, called " Online Company"
My little friends have to have their antennae added, and some eyes, but it is fun.
Then a while ago, I read about a legacy blog hop as a tribute to a wonderful lady, Paula Budinger. There were quilts made, donated, stories told, and a place for a comment. Then, my name was chosen to receive a quilt pattern of my choice from Joanne up at Canuck Quilter Designs.After some hesitation, I picked " Eclipse Sky" and have some batiks laid out already. Thank you to all those who donated quilts, who donated to the giveaways, and who told their memory of Paula.
Friday, a hiccup in my day, it started off as usual, coffee, emails, blog, then put a load of laundry in the machine. Then it all went south in a hurry, chest pain, not able to breathe, blood pressure so high, , you know when the systolic is over 200, and the diastolic over 100, things are NOT good at all, so off in the ambulance to ED. The usual ECG, blood tests, nothing to eat or drink, second blood test, and a small dose of morphine as the pain persisted, then a jab in my tummy of ( new to me ) Clexane, to prevent a clot maybe. I think by then they were looking at a heart attack and maybe a transfer to Wellington, not saying much!!!However the BP came down, I felt slightly better, and was allowed to come home, still in PJ's and dressing gown ( Hugh had come over, brought his lunch but no clothes for me!!!) I had to go into the pharmacy in that attractive get-up, to explain the new meds, as the DR altered the dose after it was faxed.
All is good today, the sun is shining, I am going very slowly, BP is behaving, and coffee never tasted so good.
