Slowly and restfully I am starting on the sashing for my Ohio Star fun to do with the blocks all done and the happy spots!

Mr. O'Quilts drove me to the doctor today.  The doc is referring me to a concussion clinic..hmmm
The Mr. also took me by to see my mother.  She was already in the bed for her afternoon nap.  Hair all done up with earrings on and her New Yorker.  She was in great shape mentally...the character that she is.  Her thoughts today were on her lunch where a banana was not cut properly, to her liking.  She was correcting us on the pronunciation of the word "gauche"  and those who are such and do not know how to slice a banana lengthwise as in a banana split.  She said that when the staff could not understand her, she cried.  But, she admitted that she only brought the tears to her eyes, she did not let them overflow.  That is because she was distracted by the flowers on the table that she thought would look much better in her room.  Life is something else...and for mother is something else.

That is just hysterical! My Mom was so much the same. Is it the Parkinson's, or age, or both? You are bringing back some memories for me :)

Hi, Diane. You really added sparkle to those stars. The sashing is perfect. Hope your concussion is getting better all the same.
best, nadia
