It's pretty late but I wanted to post two great things.
Firstly, the top is done!
The backing is pieced, the batting is airing.
Time for quilting.
I think it's safe to start relaxing a little!
(Side note: I'm doing a round of steroids to calm down
that major inflammation going on in my back/neck for now;
full check-up to come later.)
Second, and even greater,
I get to post this pic of my youngest son,
a junior, as he received his medal for first place
in pole vault at the KS State Track meet
(the biggest meet in the country)
with a vault of 15'1"--his personal best.
Hopefully I can get the video up tomorrow.
(I've never done that before but I thought I'd give it a try!)
My other son throws shot put tomorrow afternoon with a good
chance at placing so we're excited and will be there to cheer him on
for his last school sports competition...ever. <sniff>
I'll be happy with just getting my quilt loaded before we head
out to the meet but I think I'll be able to get a couple hours of fun,
easy-paced quilting (what it's supposed to be, right?) in too.
My trust in things working out, though difficult,
does not seem to have been misplaced;
it's even looking like Memorial Day might be
a day of fun and relaxing with family by the pool,
maybe a little reading even?
And then I'll go deliver that quilt!
