I like it, I like it

Last week I was cleaning and rearranging some fabric that had somehow got piled up on my quilting machine table. I had moved most of it and was getting ready to get the rest when I saw this.

Now they weren’t lined up like this but they were all together. Hummmmm, I like those together. So I let the mixture simmer awhile in my head. When I couldn’t stand it any more I did this.

I do like those half square triangles. So I went searching for a pattern to put those HST in. I found this.

Four Patch and Furrows from quiltville.com. You can find some of the best patters on Bonnie’s site. So after a little sewing I have this much done.

I really like it. The quilt will probably be a lap size cause I have very limited supply of the pretty red strips unless I can scratch around and find a little more. You know I really needed this other project don’t you.

We will be headed to Memphis in a little while cause Lynn has a chemical stress test at seven in the morning. Instead of getting up at 3 in the morning and driving to Memphis, which is a 2 1/2 to three hour drive depending on traffic, we are going this afternoon and spend the night in a motel just down from the hospital.

Hope everyone who has gotten all the snow stays warm and dry. Have a great day.


Well I don’t know now

Last week the neurosurgeon called and wanted to see Lynn again. We went to that appointment yesterday and the treatment plan we had went right out the window. Lynn’s doctors met with the gamma knife radiation team and Lynn is a candidate for the gamma knife EXCEPT it won’t stop his spinning vertigo. The Neurosurgeon told him he was between a rock and a hard place because Lynn has been having angina also. We have an appointment next Tuesday for a chemical stress test because he is having angina. The neurosurgeons suggestion is to see what the stress test shows and if he is having another blockage get that treated, then when the cardiologist can clear him for surgery have the surgery. They wouldn’t have to bother the brain, they would go in right behind the ear. They would cut the vestibular nerve and remove the tumor. They wouldn’t have to try to save his hearing cause he has no useable hearing left.

This has been one long road and I guess we are still traveling it. Maybe soon we will get this behind us. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers for us. If you can add one more prayer to your list please pray for Mrs. Betty Krones. She is our neighbor and her husband Eugene died this morning of pancreatic cancer.
