Keeping busy

I finished the dozen Christmas pillowcases for our church project, made with donated fabric.  They still need pressing and then I can deliver them.
I worked on the ditch quilting on this piece.  I finished all of the blue and purple areas and started the green.  This is a small piece, almost too small for a baby quilt, or at least an odd shape for one.
The gold mound spirea bushes are starting to change color.  Their blooms are dried and delicate.
 
I'm undergoing 2 tests this evening.  I have been healthy all my life and have never had to have these tests before.  I know others have undergone them multiple times.  It's always a little scary the first time.

I, too, am praying that all goes well for you!

Teresa said...

You are in my prayers today...I hope everything goes well! I have been feeling punky for a few days, and have not been doing much blog-reading...look how productive YOU have been! (Beautiful QOV project and the pillowcases look amazing!)

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

I've had so many tests I've kind of gotten used to it. The lead up to any of them is often the worst. I will be sending my good thoughts!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

Holly is right sometimes the lead up and the anxiety created by having to have the tests are more stressful than the tests themselves.
I do hope that all well be well. It is always better just to be able to find out what is wrong and then you can face it head on and deal with it.

Michele said...

I can only imagine how difficult if has been for you these past several days; I am amazed that you have been as busy and productive as ever.
I hope the tests tonight go well and that you are able to get some good news. I'm not religious, but I am sending warm, optimistic thoughts your way.

I am adding my prayers to all of the comments posted.

I like the additional border you added to the pillow cases. Makes them look extra special.

Your Spirea is sensational. Love the mix of pale yellow, green, burgundy. I know I missed stating all colors but that photo is so gorgeous.

Best wishes for good results on the tests tonight. I hope you don't have a long wait to hear the results. First times for test are always a little scary. I will be thinking about you all day.

The Calico Cat is right. The colours in the Spirea would make a lovely batik!

Take care and keep busy (it helps)!

It helps to keep busy, doesn't it? You are getting a lot done. Your spireas are beautiful. Ours never change color, but then we don't usually get much fall color here. Praying for you.

Sharon said...

It's all been said already, hoping your tests are not too uncomfortable and that we hear positive results from you soon. Keeping you on my list! I got a ton of applique and hexi's done while waiting for appts.

Chris W said...

You're in my prayers!!

Cathi said...

I hope you find the tests not too uncomfortable and that the results are good.
I'll be thinking of you. I went through a battery of tests last year and know how disconcerting some of it can be.

Loved seeing your recent works. The frog quilt is great. The inspiration for quilts can come from anywhere - including plants.

Hi Wanda,
Thinking of you...the waiting for results is the hardest part, I think. Maybe you'll have to keep yourself distracted!
