The longer my favorite

I loved my grandmother and her pig collection....
They reminded her of growing up in Sweden.
Her job as a young child was to feed the pigs...
She said they were so smart.
I have saved this postcard for years from her pig collection.
At my UFO group the other night, my niece, Alexis..tomorrow
turning 32..showed me a "Feel Good Quilt" I had made for her years back

On Tuesday I attended UFO quilting group at my sister's house
 Wednesday night IQ quilting group.
On Thursday, My Friends in Stitches quilting group for Hospice.

Here Jackie...who had downplayed her sewing,
showed us a hand sewn quilt she had made in college.
Her first and only quilt. Bravo!!
She wants to have it quilted, but I cannot find Mary Jerz!!!
Does anyone know the pattern?
Our dear 4th grader getting help from Zoe with her homework.
My sister and I bought this fabric in the early 70's
I have just loved it ever since..I only have a tiny bit left
just enough for memories of fabric shopping with my sister in Arizona
at Christown Mall..I was 22 and she was 11.

Getting a post up here..
Last week's visit to the ER sent me home with an antibiotic
that did not work.
So, I spent THIS Wednesday too in another ER,
One hour on IV antibiotics, chest X-ray, blood clot scan,
heart monitor, blood work..all fine.
I was sent home with a hefty new antibiotic for 10 more days.
No pool, leg up instructions
Since it is in the same leg that I need the other knee replacement,
I am hobbling around in pain...all irritable and tired.
Blue quilting...

Meantime, my brother has spent 8 days in the hospital in NJ
with very serious Cellulitis that has gone into the muscle
He has spent the entire time on IV antibiotics.
Can you believe..both of us with Cellulitis??

Made new friends in the ER...You know me, I never meet a stranger.
The blood clot scanner had my same birthday and was from Miami, just like me.
The nurses shared family issues with me. We laughed and cried together.
The doctor introduced himself as Jonathon  instead of Dr.
and was the nicest doctor ever...we discussed politics..Ha!!
Who ever spends 4 hours in an ER and actually feels good about it???

My son has been terrific...more than terrific.
Helping me with everything.
How did I ever function without him.?

Tonight I am going to read another Maisie Dobbs mystery.
Fluff to cheer me up.

God bless your son, your grandchildren and you! Gratitude for the healers, the patients, the miracle medicine now and in the future. But most of blessing you, cranky or not, swollen or not, deep in your save your sanity fluff. You are a lovely earth angel who keeps on keeping on and makes friends every where you go bringing laughter, tears and lovely cheer.
Keep fluffing!

So many things happening! From social events to the ER. You have run the gamut. Thanks for reminding me of Maisie Dobbs. I do believe I will find one of those mysteries and get started! Hope you get your cellulitis sorted. It doesn’t sound fun at all.

I sure hope the new antibiotics do the trick. Zoe looks like a good helper.

Oh no not the dreaded ER again for you!! Hope both you and your brother are on the road to recovery quickly. Bet you were pleased to see the quilt you'd made years ago, good memories.
