Plaid Obsession continues to be my primary quilting focus. The center is finished and I began adding a piano key border last night after this picture was taken. Then it will get an additional border that looks very much like the sashing strips.
This project does not require much precision piecing and it proved to be a good therapizing tool last week. "Therapizing" is a new-to-me term that I encountered this weekend while browsing Angie's blog, but I had an immediate connection with it. I needed a lot of therapizing last week. In addition to attending to the needs of my loved one recovering from surgery, our two doggies also needed medical attention: one with an injured paw and the other one just plain sick.
I am happy to report that everyone in our pack, both 2-legged and 4-legged, is doing great including the care giverJ. Thank you to all who kindly sent their good wishes after last week’s post. It always means a lot when people connect with you during stressful times.
We had a front come through our area last week. We missed our chance for rain, but the weather is much more enjoyable and the forecasters are hopeful that we have had our last 100 degree day for 2011. If they are correct, we will end the year with a total of 90 days with highs of 100 or more. Even by Central Texas standards, that's enough!
