I know it has only been 4 days, but the fact that my right hand is still healing makes having a very limited left hand all the harder. And keeping it real here, I might have had a little break down on Friday night (after spending the day doing more than I should have been doing) and my sweetheart was kind enough to listen to me whine, all the way through and then just hug me and let me know that it was all going to be okay. (he's a keeper :) And I do know that it will all be worth it and that I couldn't keep doing what I was doing. This has been an issue for 10 years and it was so time to get it fixed. And hey, it already feels better today after giving it the weekend off :) So ya, it was just such an incredible blessing to spend an entire weekend with extended family and to have such a great reminder of how much there is to enjoy and all the good there is, when we just slow down to see it!!!!
And part of that slowing down included starting a new book, to actually read and not listen to ;) A bit ago, Rhonda Cratty sent me a copy of her new book, Our Family Quilt. It is cute story about a grandmother passing on her quilting legacy to her granddaughter. I am enjoying just slowing down and getting to read this sweet story that reminds me a lot of my mother passing on her quilting knowledge to me, and that just makes my heart smile :)
And one last tidbit, Fat Quarter Shop announced this morning that my Royal Quilt won the first round of the Cake Mix Bake Off. How fun is that!! Thank you to everyone that voted and be sure to pop on over to Fat Quarter Shop and vote for your favorite in Round 2. The new quilts are just gorgeous, it is going to be tough to pick a favorite!!!
And that's all for today ;) I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!
