Happy Day-after the 4th of July! Our celebration was nice, but fireworks were pre-empted by Mother Nature's own.
For those of you who have been following all my health-related posts, my knee replacement surgery is scheduled to take place in 2 days.....Wednesday July 7. I've been so busy finishing up all 12 quilts for the new book (as yet untitled) that I haven't had much time to stew and fret about it. I have 3 quilts left to bind today and tomorrow, plus getting caught up on all the yard work, and straightening up the house to get ready for my homecoming with a walker. Other orthopedic equipment has yet to be installed. Those of you who are familiar with this, know what I am talking about.
I'm hoping to photograph all the quilts tomorrow with Ken's help, and will try to post some of the photos before my hospital stay. If things go as they should I will be home on Saturday. Our son, Kelly, is coming home to help with my post-op care, and Miss Kitty's Quilters have offered to carry in nutritious and tasty meals for awhile. What would we all do without our wonderful friends? Miss Kitty's has been my biggest and most meaningful social group since moving to Dodge City in 2000. My best friends are participants, and I don't know where I'd be without them.
And as for Love Knows No Season quilt and block of the month......tickets are still on sale. The quilt will be given away at Miss Kitty's December meeting. For my international friends, I am still planning to design an alternate block for July, since some of you have expressed the desire for something other than the red-white-blue USA patriotic block we included in our quilt.
REMEMBER to download the June block by July 15th, when the July block(s) go up, and thank you for your interest in this project.
