I finished this quilt for our Miss Ru last week. I didn't want to blog about it because she hadn't seen it yet. Miss Ru has been cat-sitting while her boyfriend has been out of town on business, so she wasn't here.
I also never did quite get around to getting this quilt outside to get good pictures of it, so please just bear with me on this one.
Miss Ru has her quilt now, but unfortunately it is on her bed in the hospital. Very early Thursday morning she suddenly couldn't breathe and was in a LOT of pain. After a rush trip from boyfriend's apartment to the hospital it was determined that her right lung had collapsed. She's had a couple of procedures done and the lung has been re-inflated. There is a rather nasty tube in her chest which is maintaining that until the lung heals.
I like to "write" words in the quilts I make and this is one that I want to see totally applied to our Miss Ru.
She's had a lot of trials and a lot of pain, but she's strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, and she's coming out of this one, too.
I've made a start on another circle quilt. I really like this quilt and it is so easy to make. (What you can see behind this first row of the circle quilt is leftover blocks from Mary's quilt. Playing with those.) I've got a couple more rows put together, just don't have a picture of them.
I like to remember all the good times and forget the bad. Or as the Apostle Paul said to the Philippians, "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."
I was ironing and cutting into strips and squares some fabric I'd been given when I made the mistake of walking away and leaving the basket unattended. I guess it looked like a good spot for a nap. LOL
So, there have been good things and bad. And yes, I am still muddling.....
Here in the States, tomorrow is Easter, or as we like to say, Resurrection Day. I hope you have a really nice one, whatever you choose to call it!
My love to you all.
Hugs and kisses,
