lucky day


I won one of the raffle baskets at the quilt show!  It’s a huge basket of notions and quite a haul of goodies.

My favorite notion?


I’ve wanted Wonder Clips for a long time.  When I am piecing 120 blocks and need to put them into piles of ten to make it easy to count?  Bring on the Wonder Clips!

And what about these?


I do so like pins.  Especially when they’re “pretty”.  Hah!

Hilariously, Banjo Man stood next to me and examined every single thing I pulled out of the basket.  He especially liked the quilting books (three of them!) and a pin cushion shaped like a sewing machine.

We are headed north today for a follow up physical therapy session and then to the cancer center for a check up with the radiologist.  I expect both sessions to go well.  I wouldn’t mind getting a few answers as to the source of the lingering pain and what to do about it and how long it’s going to last, but I’ve learned that no one offers much information.

It’s good to have Banjo Man home and I’m glad he’s driving me today.  I think I could do it myself but we’re still being cautious.  Which is fine with me!
