I have been absent from the blog after last weeks BCG treatment. The fatigue hit me so hard I could not finish the two quilts I had ready to go for chemo patients. I only had to stitch down the binding and stitch the label. It didn't start easing up until Tuesday. What a horrible feeling!
I had treatment number five this morning and I am expecting the same or worse fatigue....
I have been busy in the sewing room the last few days. I quilted two tops
This one is from K alefthandedquilter.blogspot.com. She has been sharing her love of sewing and putting these tops to a great cause. This one will be a Quilty Hugs.
This next quilt is from Heart Builders.
Anita sent me this picture of a frog who hides out in her watering can.
I have had my Allietare quilt top in a bag. It only needed four blocks to be made. Friday evening that was my task. Saturday I continued and finished sewing all the long rows. I did it my way which is different than the pattern. I'm on the fence about borders or not. It will percolate for a little while while I decide. The good news is that the bag is GONE and there is one less UFO. It can be quilted as is if I so desire.
I won a scrap give away ("squirrel poop") from Katie Mae. LOL! Cute scraps!
Friday my long arm will get a spa treatment as I have been having a lot of thread shredding.
Yesterday while at the chemo lab, I gave three quilts to cold chemo patients. The last one, the large batik quilt was presented to a man. Tears streamed from his eyes after laying the quilt on him. After a hug I was filled with joy for the whole day.
I sewed two more chisel quilt tops this past weekend. I have three chisel columns remaining. I'm sure that they will get incorporated into another top. The stack of tops keeps growing and I can stop making them. 🐸🐸🐸
