Pictured here is a lap quilt I have been working on sorta off and on for several months. I didn’t get in a hurry because i knew from the beginning it would be a birthday gift for my friend, Rose, simply because of the rose squares in the middle of each block. lAst weekend, upon being invited to a pizza party by Rose, remembering her b’day is sometime in this general time frame I jumped to the wrong conclusion — that last weekend was her birthday even though that niggling little voice in my head told me I was wrong! Once in a while I really should listen to that voice.
The result was that I pulled the quilt out of it’s hiding place and finished it immediately, missing the party by not paying attention to the time, and finished the quilt that night, taking it to her the following day with my birthday wishes attached. A month early!! well, at least I no longer have to rush it out of sight when she visits and she can get an extra months enjoyment from it. I fell in love with this one — such an easy pattern, so ow the plan is to make myself one for keeping on my power chair.
Last Monday, being bored I suppose, I fell again and discovered I still don’t bounce! Bummer! All there is to show for that morning is a very colorful head and eye and the residual headache that accompanies concussions. also a lot of advice from friends telling me not to do that again! Hmmm, okay, good advice. Now we just need someone to explain how to NOT do that again. Not enough fun to do it just because I can, but not enough information as to what leads up to the incident to really avoid it. More of the joy f having MS,
A few more photos for you to enjoy.
