Sewing a few (almost) mindless blocks is relaxing during times like this. I began these weeks ago -- chose the colors, decided the size -- but until I sew more and lay them out I won't know if they will work for their intended purpose. (They are paler in real life than in the photograph.)
These rust-colored flowers at the far side of the hospital parking lot caught my eye as I walked toward the entrance.
On the way out I stopped to take a closer look . It wasn't until then that I realized they were orange and maroon/purple/violet.
I've had to pick up the Buckeye Beauty blocks. My older daughter, her husband, and their three little ones are coming to visit this weekend. I know she wants to see her father and I couldn't tell her not to come. Many years ago my own father went into the hospital on a Thursday having suffered from a heart attack. I was 8 months pregnant at the time but intended to visit him that weekend. My mom insisted we not come, that we wait and see. My father died the following Monday. I believe my husband will be fine but I would never tell either of my daughters not to visit in a situation like this.
While sitting with my husband at the hospital or waiting while he has tests, I am stitching the binding to the back of the Red Wings quilt. (I find it difficult to just sit.) At least I will have accomplished one goal this month.
If you leave a comment I will respond but it may take me a few days or a week longer than usual.
Happy quilting to you!
