    The biopsy and the surgery went well. The Dr. said he didn't have to go in as deep as he thought to get the lesion out.
    David was actually eating last night when I left the hospital. All his vital signs were good. I need to get some rest .Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. They really are working!!!!

    Carolyn, saying prayers for you and family. Times are very hard when you think your all alone. You are not alone.
    So many things can change your future, but prayers can save your life.

    Ah, this is going to be another productive weekend for QuilterMomma's quilt top. Dh is off to camp with a brother and nephew.

    So, let me set my goal. Um. I want to have completed by sometime Saturday all the border swags. Anything after that is a bonus. By (random selection here) March 17, I hope to have all the borders completely appliqued and the triangles long-stitched on.

    There you have it. Anyone else want to declare their weekend goal?

    best,
    d
    My best is the least I can do.

    Well, since you want to set a goal Whigrose, this weekend I want to get jillnjos quilt longarmed, binding on so can mail to her next week. I also want to get two customer quilts done, my applique quilt finished quilted and my hair done while making it to Buggy Barn just for fun.

    My only goal is to get to the quilt shop (75miles from home) and hopefully find some fat quarters for the remaining colors that I need. If there is time I want to get the rest of the pieces cut. Time will be an issue for the next six days since my DD2 is coming home from college for spring break. She already has plans of her own, so I'll just go with the flow and see how much I can get done. Have a great weekend everyone!

    But it's such a good feeling!!!

    Really though, I don't want any of you swappers to feel pressed to finish, we have a deadline of July and that's what matters! I am at home and had the time to do this as quickly as I did, so enjoy making your beautiful quilts!! Nancy.

    I can post a picture in the swap thread, but QuilterMomma has to say whether I should or not!

    And, and, and I am just about 50% of the way toward the goal I set for myself for this weekend. Had to do something while making and baking off thirteen dozen or more cookies for the freezer.

    I had dh bring my electric machine down from my studio to the kitchen for this little exercise :-) I found I like working down here in the midst of everything.

    I may have to adjust my goal to 'complete the top'. Darn :-)

    Best,

    I am having a few problems with a border but hope to get it sorted out this weekend, then sandwich and start quilting. Mine won't be done for another couple of months.

    I am supposed to get my quilt on Monday! I am so excited. I really need something to curl up with and to comfort me. Looking forward and then she can post pictures for you unless she wants me to.
