Mystery Quilt with Gyleen

I am going to do the Mystery Quilt with Gyleen Fitzgerald.  She is running on Facebook.  First clue is finished.  I think if I can keep up this will be good therapy for me while Wayne goes thru his cancer treatments.  This is the center and is 17 1/2 by 17 1/2 inches square.  Now I have to wait for the next clue.  All of these came from my scrap bin.  That is part of the challenge, use your scraps.

Happy Quilting, Vicki

We had a good Christmas.  Wayne is feeling a little better.  Chemo gets easier each time.  All children were home or came by.  We went to his brothers for lunch.  It is a cover dish thing and a small group.  We enjoyed the time together.

Happy Quilting and Happy New Year.

Update Cancer

I have not posted in awhile.  Life has gotten in the way of quilting. DH has been sick.  It took about 7 weeks to find out what was wrong.  He has stomach cancer, that is stage 4, and terminal.  This is rare in the US.  After a colonoscopy was ok, we went back to that GI with pain in the abdomen and swelling.  That dr told him to lose weight, walk 5 miles a day and see a heart Dr.  A week later I had DH in the emergency room in the city near by.  They referred us to a GI Dr there.  After 3 visits to the ER and fluid drawn off his belly, they found tumor cells. Five days in the hospital, they found the tumor in his stomach.  They also found blood clots in his lung.  They drew off a total of 7 1/2 liters of fluids from his abdomen.  He now has a catheter in his belly where I draw the fluids off at home..  This has reduced the pain a great deal.  As of today he has had 3 rounds of chemo.  After the next round the Dr will have another upper GI done to see if the chemo is working.  It has reduced the fluid in his belly, but he can't eat anything.  He has lost over 50 lbs.  Please keep us in your prayers.                Happy quilting, Vicki

Cotton Strikes again

I knocked over some cones of longarm thread the other day.  Thought I got them all up.  Guess I didnt.  Cotton, 1 yr old Mini Scnhauzer, found one.  She brought it to me like this, yesterday.  Looks like Cousin It from The Adams Family, with a punk dye job. lol 

Happy Quilting,

Celtic Solstice

As you ca see, I am still working on my Celtic Solstice quilt.  On the design wall is 1/4 of the quilt top, without borders.  Decided it was easier to put together in smaller pieces instead of 1 big piece.  As I am making the KING size.  Now I remember why I havent made a king in awhile!!  I am really father along, I have 3 sections made, 2 sewn together and the last in rows.  So, off to sew while the football game it on.  DH is happy, football and hunting are back!!

T-shirt Quilt

I have been lazy about posting lately.  I havent had many quilts to post about.  Finished this t-shirt quilt for a customer 2 weeks ago.  Yep, lazy.  I just let a customer quilt leave the house 10 minutes ago without taking a picture.  No worry, I will see it again soon and get some pictures.  It is custom quilted,  I dont do a lot of custom, so I need the pics.  

Happy Quilting, Vicki
