The Big Fat Mess!!

New floors are going into my sewing room.   My friends moved ALL the fabric from my sewing all over the house...It looks quite like a very disorganized fabric outlet store..ha ha...  They said that they would paint my sewing room a bright, pretty color to cheer me up.

 The wonderful Mr. O'Quilts is sick.  He has a drop foot that keeps him struggling with walking...goodbye tennis, goodbye walks with the dog, goodbye mobility.  It is all getting worse...More evaluations on Monday and Tuesday.

 My mother reports that she cannot be a support for me.  WHAT???She said that I have to look deep into my core and find the strength myself...MOM!!!  I know that she is 92 and I am 65...but really.... Guess it is true though, because the Parkinson's seems to be sapping her strength.  She says that she gets weaker and more fatigued by the day.

I have not had a concussion symptom in two weeks.  It will be one year July 3.  Cross my fingers, my eyes and my toes...I am afraid to print this.. lest it come back.

So that is why there have no posts in a week....PS.....My friends say that I should not buy more fabric???   I thought that they were my friends!!  Ha...I think I had better look in the trunks of their cars after Wednesday night's move....but it all is....
 On my roll top desk!!!!
On the computer table!!!!
In the dining room!!!!

You do have a beautiful fabric collection--and good friends.
Congratulations on being symptom free! And I hope Mr. O'Quilts is soon symptom free as well!

It looks as though your friends are dancing in the first photo. I like the idea of dancing friends helping you sort out your sewing room! I hope Mr O'Q's foot gets better soon. And great to hear you haven't had any concussion symptoms.

I love your Mom. Count your blessings. I know you do & I know sometimes it is hard to do. Just as you are getting better, Mr. O'Q has problems -- I hope it is nothing serious. Growing old isn't for the weak, is it?
And what an amazing group of friends you have! You are indeed blessed!
