Grandma O'Quilts Holds Her Own........

Brave Grandma O'Quilts, uplifted by friends of all ages, all around the world...
is feeling better...

From Ms Nancy's basket bazaar...comes this purple present for Drenna's birthday.

A purple button added..
Filled with purple goodies, thread, clips and charms.

From Barbara's estate...4.5 inch squares...random..cuz I do not usually use that size.
Using some of my favorite plaid...ouch....I started a comfort quilt for someone.
It is so nice to just play with fabric with no rules or demands,
  Also...did a binding...long awaiting my newfound energy.

Today, I realized that I was now able to play my  part in all this.
A part to push myself a
After my  lovely nap this morning...
I..went to the library for large print books.
(So proud of self, alas, I lost my cane and I wobbled back inside to look.
No dice.
Back to the car..searched everywhere...keeping my new found serenity...All of a sudden, it rang.
It was in my bra...the whole time) YIKES..

Did a bit of shopping and then. YES.....I took a swim in the pool.
This was the second time in 6 months...
I was so grateful....
Friends galore welcomed me back.

Despite intense family drama tonight...sigh.. I survived.
Kids gone off to their cousins.

 I found a bit of hope today..
I am borrowing strength from my therapist.
Sewing and Andrea Bocelli...
lift up Grandma O'Quilts tonight.!!
I am so happy to be able to post this joy..

Oh, Diane!! This post made me laugh out loud!!..the phone in your bra!!..and I had to, yes I had to, read it out loud to my husband. He laughed too! Boy, can we relate. He listens to me asking if he's seen my phone, my cup of coffee, my car keys (still know what they are for, thank goodness!) pretty much over and over all day long. Love your blog and you you crazy, wonderful woman!

Oh, how I relate ~ ~ fabric. just me and my fabric without rules or deadlines or even goals ~ ~ and good music adding to the mood. (and no whining or bickering in the background!) It sounds like a perfect evening and a good day. Thank you for sharing it with us :)
