All in Good Time...

I've been meaning to write this post for the past several weeks.  Life is pretty busy, but generally in a good way.  Then I threw my back out yesterday morning (putting on a jacket if you can believe it).  So I'm currently resting and doped up on a new (very strong) muscle relaxant.  This means that I'm getting plenty of sleep and I now have the time to write this post.  (Warning:  If anything I say doesn't make sense, I'm blaming it on the drugs!)

I finished piecing the Cheerio quilt top shortly after my last post - at the end of March.  Truthfully, my husband isn't a big fan of all the bright colors in this one, but I love it!  I'm planning to put it over the back of my big red chair in my sewing room, so he won't see very often anyway.

I already know how I want to quilt it (which can sometimes be the hardest part) so I had hoped to baste it and get started on it right away. But between trips and such, it took me 3 weeks just to baste it.

David was a big help during that process...

He was better behaved than our Siamese Moses who kept trying to crawl underneath the backing fabric after I had it pinned to the floor.  I turned around at one point and there was a huge bubble underneath the middle of it.  I had to unpin it to get her out.

I've gotten started quilting it, but I'll have to wait a few days for my back to heal before I do any more.  Until then I'm going to try to enjoy the rest.  I have  a 'herd' of kitties who have volunteered to keep my company while I do.

He says, "Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."
Psalm 46:10 NIV

Supposed to be I’m going to my grandma’s house to help her working with his new house designs, but I’ve got unexpected work to do this weekend. So sad that after a long time of waiting it was cancelled. But for sure there will be a good time soon with my grandma. -Dorothy of top essay writing services
