I am still here, still quilting... :o) I now have 14 blocks done, out of 42, so that is 1/3rd done! Woo Hoo! :o) Of course, there is the whole outside border to do too, but that is an easy *ocean waves* design. I am pacing myself, because my shoulder and hands have been aching really badly lately. This arthritis is no fun. Had it for years, since I was in my 20s, but I ache so much worse when it is cold outside and all this stitching... But it is not like I am going to give up my hand-quilting any time soon... :o)
And then, as if I have not *given* enough blood, poking myself hand-quilting, today I went for the FIRST TIME and gave blood! I have meant to do it so many times, but Mom was going today, so I went with her. I knew it would be no big deal, they drew so much blood when I was pregnant with the trio, that it doesn't even phase me anymore...
I made sure I wore my sticker home, so that the kids and the hubby would KNOW they had to be nice to me... :o))) Hope you all are having a good day!
