Quilters are the most fabulous friends

My quilty friends have been taking such goodo care of me.  Thank you so much!  Even from her own sick bed, Caro sent this sweet wrist pin cushion,

And yesterday, Ronda came over with goodies galore.  My Christmas gift,
new quilty socks.  She also brought the next block-a-buck block to work on.  I sure hope to spend some time in my sewing room this next week,
and she cleaned out her collection of quilting magazines.
It's fun and actually informative to go through even older issues to see how things have changed over time and to reassess my own preferences.  Which patterns appeal to me today?  I'm thinking that my tastes are changing - and that's not all bad. 

Yesterday there was a brief interlude when we could go outside for a short walk.  Yeah!  Fresh air!  Thursday is my first check back appointment with the heart surgeon, so that's a good one to check off.

Don't throw the magazines away till we there in september. I think it's a good idea to go through my quiltmagazines again, I got a few piles here as well. I'm glad you're feeling better. bye bye Caro
