Butterflies and My Doll Quilt Swap Angel - Lisa!!!
I am sure you will all know how thrilled I am with my new dolly quilt from Lisa. If only you could understand what joy this quilt brings to me at this time, Lisa - I will treasure it forever!
Lisa used some vintage reproduction fabrics and it is hand and machine quilted and an orginal design - I love it, love it, love it! Also included was an American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine, which I love, but don't have this particular copy, and also a very pretty, dainty fat quarter, and a lovely card.
I am working in Java Script??? and can't get up Lisa's blog so please visit her if you wish - http://lmdandmyworld.blogspot.com. I have also listed her on my sidebar, so maybe that will work. Someday soon I will get Julia to help me sort it out - meanwhile, hope I am getting there!
Mum moved to a nursing home, Shoalwater Lodge, yesterday. At present she is there on respite until we get the financial negotiations sorted out - it is a wonderful facility and I would think ***** as far as nursing homes go. Hopefully she will remain there in the room she is in - this is what I want for her!
Doesn't she look wonderful for less than a month off 90 years - I took her red roses and a beautiful little purple Thai silk elephant. Unfortunately, she had a fall last night, but fortunatley just cut her leg. I have been and read the riot act to her today - she really must allow those carers to care for her full time! Of all the tears I have shed, I am now convinced I can no longer care for her at home. Hopefully in the days to come, we will both feel as we do now, as she has accepted her situation with great grace and dignity and it is what she wants,too!
Being the neat-freak that I am, I have at last managed to get my house in order as much as I can considering the changes that are taking place. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to think about stitching again.
Thanks for being my friends and thank you once again, Lisa - you are a little ray of sunshine!
