It's been a long while

I just looked at my blog and realized I haven't posted since February! It's been a roller coaster ride for the past few months. I've had to leave the Stash Quilts ring, but I'm going to try to get back in. Hopefully, Judy will allow it.
I am home on medical leave. If you remember, I had surgery last year. Well, now I'm into the complications phase. There's a bone spur pressing on the nerves in my neck. That causes pain and or numbness down my arm. Several weeks ago, the vertigo started. Thank goodness I can still quilt. Not as much, but some. My new surgery is on July 2nd. I wanted to wait until after the wedding in case I didn't recuperate as quickly as the doctor predicted.
The wedding is still on for the Precious twins next month and I've gotten my dress. I really love the colors-sort of like an opal. I did the right thing and waited for the mother of the bride to buy hers, but finally couldn't wait anymore. And it was the first one I tried on. Phew!!!!!!!! That's one thing off the list. We also booked a place for the rehearsal dinner. I think I'm done.
I've been working on building a t-shirt quilt business. If I'm going to have to make a living from home, then I want to make it work. The website is a work in progress, and I have to get some samples made.
So that's what I've been up to lately. Post some comments so I can catch up with all of you.

Hope you feel better real soon - at least enough to enjoy the wedding!

After visiting Australia, Opal as a color has a wide variation definition. The red ones are most prized....

Hi Eileen, so sorry to hear about the bone spur. It sounds awful and painful. I'm glad you are still able to do some quiting.
I'm praying that all works out for the best, for you, and that a home business is just what the dr. ordered and it will do very well.
Happy to hear you found a dress, I think that's one of the hardest parts. Big gentle hugs, Finn
