Still Here

No, I'm not dead yet. Have had a scare with Heart Cath, but, things seem to be stable for now. I will probably have to have additional stents placed in the next few months. Will 'cross that bridge when I get there'.

Now, back to the important stuff.

I managed to finish another block for my Garden quilt. This is what I have so far:

I finished piecing the one block wonder quilt. It has been placed in the UFO box for now.

I have done all the prep work for the Devine Raffle Quilt and have started the applique on it this weekend.I really hope that I can do it justice. Elizabeth has worked so hard designing it. If this

turns out like I think that it will, this will be one awesome quilt.

Dick and I have also----------now about Dick--------He took Rocky for his "nip tuck" several weeks ago, and it is a wonder that he is still alive. Rocky does not know the meaning of a leash and he took off running when Dick opened the door. Rocky ran and Dick hit his head on a deck post. It is a miracle that he is still alive to tell the story. This photo is what he looked like 3 weeks later, so you can imagine what he looked like before. Long story short--Dick is fine and Rocky is a little more subdued. Both are doing fine.

Now back to Dick and I. We have been getting my unusual garden spot ready. This involves 2 large water troughs and lots of dirt. Will get more on that later. This has gone on long enough.

Blogger is not showing this posting in the preview the way I want it to look. So, hope you can read it.
Hope you have a good week.

Joyce--I'm sorry that you've been having a difficult time and hope that things will be a little smoother for you in the coming days--also for your husband. What a shiner! I can't imagine what it looked like the day after the accident.
Love your applique.

Glad to see you are amongst the living. Can't imagine what Dick looked like before. Does he know you have his picture up for the whole world to see? Keep quilting but enjoy these days of decent weather before the a/c comes on for the summer. A/C......a necessary evil here in the South.
