Ok, the last picture until after it is quilted! I sewed the last seam last night. It finished a little less than 66" x 77".
It was a busy day with a hair cut, embroidery club in the afternoon, Dad's Dr. appt. and then a blood test for him at the hospital lab, pick up a sandwich for him. Then in the evening computer club. I ended up leaving that meeting early because I was exhausted.
Dad did leave the phone where I put it (surprise!) but he forgot to take his prescription medicine. The Dr. has decided the medicine isn't helping his platelet count and in fact is raising his white cell count. He has ordered 2 more tests from blood draws and we see him again next week. Two hours later I dropped Dad off at his apartment.
This is the cranesbill that I started with, a plant from a friend's garden. I captured it with dappled sunlight and it is so pretty. I have added at least 4 other varieties to my gardens over the years. Before I got that first plant I didn't even know there was a hardy geranium and also had never heard its proper name, Cranesbill. I have learned so much in 16 years of perennial gardening.
