The Boys are Much Happier

Their dad got home yesterday late afternoon, so the are out of their funk and much, much happier...life is so much better when everyone is home and where they are supposed to be. Zack is doing pretty well since his surgery...he's still doing a fair amount of limping in the house, but it is amazing when we go out the limp disappears...HMMMMM, wodner what that means. We have to take him back to the orthopedic surgeon on Wednesday for x-rays to make sure that everything is healing the way it's supposed to, that the bone is all growing together properly and to decide when we'll have the other one done...I don't want to think about that yet.

 
Here's what I finished while Andy was gone...my Celebrate Spring top for the guest room bed...I have a wonderful fally color quilt on there now, and when I saw the Celebrate Spring fabric I knew I had to have that for the guest room. It was too big for Andy to hold for me so I thought I'd just lay it on the bed...not the best picture, but you get the idea.

 

Now, my next project is to cut my Scaredy Cat jelly roll and get the Halloween quilt top done...I'll never get it quilted in time, but if I have it done for this Halloween then it will surely be quilted and the binding on before next Halloween. How's that for positive thinking?

The Celebrate Spring top is so full of pretty colors and will be beautiful all quilted up.
I just visited Orlando WDW and made plans to return next September. I would enjoy meeting you when I'm there if your schedule permits. Something to think about...a year away!

Wow Carol! You are one busy, busy sewing bee, aren't you? Love the quilt!
Isn't it funny that the dogs are bothered when someone isn't home like they are supposed to be? My Lucy is very sad when her 'daddy' is off working. Love the photo of the dogs - they're adorable!
