The blood clot thing

My broken heart reports that my man is in the hospital with small blood clots in both lungs.  Apparently this is a separate deal apart from any other ailment he has.  Mr. O'Quilts is struggling breathing ...a very scary thing.  He sent me home tonight, as he is just sleeping. I listened.
Wanda says that we quilters are strong women who can take anything that life throws at us...I think I want to be like Wanda!!
 Silly me continues with this project.  That, in spite of the fact that I am sloppy and cannot even paint right.  I have switched from fabric to paper which makes it a bit easier to do the Mod Podge..heavy on the bit part.
My quilting friends do everything for me...So, slop, slop I messily go....turning grief into presents...flawed for sure, but made with love.

Such a scary thing to happen! Sending hugs your way! I hope Mr. O feels better by tomorrow, and you do too. And Wanda is right - we are strong! Just stay busy being creative, that is soothing and also productive.

Just remember that sometimes creativity is messy!
