The Quite Good Day

In quilting,I have told myself that I would try something new..
I have never made this pattern because I thought it was too much work.  
..such a lazy quilter am I!! 
Last night I started it and it was sooo easy and fun..
Promised self that I would not play with the blocks until I finish the London Olympic quilt..
but playing with color made me happy enough.
 Emi-Lou's cafe has a new Brian..such an awesome dinner.
 Somehow Emily and Brian do not approve of my diet.  They thought that adding greens to my beer was delightful...oh...nothing like a good laugh:)
  From Sujata Shah's blog comes this amazing vimeo.
The update is good...
Mr. O'Quilts spent  FIVE HOURS in his wheelchair out in the beautiful Carolina spring day. 
 The day was stunning and fun. 
 Kids in the play pool, Stephanie taking care of my man, Emily making another awesome late lunch..
.Wonderful, and I almost missed it.
I went to the grocery store this morning...joints all achy, mind all worried..feeling a bit dizzy...Poor me...the stats say stress causes joint pain and maybe the concussion symptoms are coming back and woe is me.

As I walked outside with the groceries, I felt a light spring breeze...the trees were all in bloom...the Carolina Dogwood, the Cherry trees...It was a perfect day and I almost missed it.
With my...long litany of my Dear Man says.
When I realized that without the neck brace, he was unable to control his head, I almost regressed.
A second look saw the peace and joy in his eyes as he loved being outside.
