    Western-Horse Themed Quilt

    I've been struggling to get this one done for the past four months. My friend wanted it for Father's Day, but thankfully decided to let me take my time with it. It was a good thing too, because I landed in the hospital for a month with AML Leukemia & am going through the chemo again. My energy level is not very high after 3 rounds. I am hospitalized for a week each month for the next round, & have been doing my best to get it finished in the time I'm home. I finished the quilt last night & my friend is coming to pick it up this afternoon. She's so excited to see it!! :-) I wish the pictures showed how awesome it really came out!! I love it!!

    Wonderful finish...I’m glad you were able to get through it while taking your treatment. I will keep you in my prayers during your next round and for a positive outcome.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Great quilt. I'm so sorry that you are going through chemo treatments again. But, I am glad that you could be distracted from the difficult medical situation by doing something so special for a friend. Hopefully, this chemo round will bring great success for eradicating the cancer.

    I couldn't agree more. The quilt will be a constant reminder of your friendship, but I'll bet you were relieved to not have the pressure of finishing it either. Prayers for strength of mind and body as you receive treatment and hopes for a complete recovery.

    Your perseverance is remarkable. It takes so much energy to go through chemo, and to feel up to do anything in between treatments. Kudoes to you for pushing through and making something so special for your friend. I'm sure it'll be treasured forever.

    That quilt is perfect for Central Florida and the horses we have here. Good for you to get it done amidst all the health issues. Prayers for complete healing and good friends/family to help when needed.
