This was my first one, if you'll remember it with me.......
Well...........lately, I have been staring at a ziploc baggie of dark strips that I had leftover...ones that were too dark to fit into the pastel quilt. It just kept nagging at me to make another string-quilt, but there weren't enough strips there to make a couch-size quilt, and I didn't want to cut more strips.
As you can see, I even went so far as to piece a piano-key border. I'm not totally sold on my pieced corners in the borders, but wasn't sure what to do about the strips changing directions there.
My computer suddenly isn't playing nicely when it comes to my editing my photos, so I wasn't able to crop or adjust coloring or brightness.
Update on hubby: It's been 3 weeks since his second session of chemo treatments, and his 100.6 fevers have started again. Also, yesterday morning, I woke to the sound of something hitting the floor, and I rushed into the kitchen to find him lying on his side. Somehow he lost his balance and fell. He wouldn't let me move him, so I called for an ambulance, remembering that the first time he fell, in February of 2010, he broke his hip. But, blessedly, after examining him, the EMTs determined that nothing was broken, and we refused transport to a medical facility.
With his spleen so swollen from the Lymphoma, we were concerned about internal bleeding, but after waiting an hour for his doctor's office to open, he felt well and we decided that there was no real harm done, PRAISE GOD. But he requested that his walker be brought into the house from storage, and I no longer feel comfortable leaving him alone unless really necessary.
His next chemo is scheduled for December 1st, but I don't think we're going to have a big Thanksgiving dinner here at home. His eating behavior is too erratic for me to spend the money on a large meal that may not get eaten with just the two of us here. Maybe we'll be blessed with the Thanksgiving meal from some other source. There is family around....I just have to get over my shyness about asking !
