A day or so after my last post, I made more blocks for the string quilt.
Last week...or was it the week before? My father had a medical issue that necessitated a trip to the emergency room. His subsequent treatment of his treatment (or lack thereof - he refused to fill the prescription, then decided to do a home modification on an inserted medical device) landed him in the hospital and eventually in surgery. He's currently in a rehab facility, but going home is no longer an option. Here you can see the dramatic property line between the neighbor's place and my dad's. Can you say, "fire hazard?"
On a brighter note, I was home for a bit of weekend estate-sale-ing. I only had time to swing by one, but I found this bright and cheery wedding ring. It is graphically delightful, with its bold reds and happy ginghams. Because it has worn spots and a tear, it was a mere $15. I bought it with the thought of using it as a cutter quilt, but it is in much better condition than I initially believed. I might have to do something fun with it...like even patch/repair it! Just looking at it makes me happy!
Every day is a gift. Treasure it!
