It was sew-sew weekend. Or I should say a 'sew good' weekend. There are two finished flimsies. One for a little babe born just Thursday eve to a Winnie the Pooh loving family.
And the colorful one is for baby Evan, born two weeks ago.
I am still working on my MIL quilt. It is about 80% quilted now. Though there was a breakthrough at my Wednesday quilt group. My quilting, all but meandering, puckers a lot. Where my seams cross I always have gaps and extra fabric. When pinning, 'they say' don't pull it too tight, now, I think I don't pull it tight enough. Marie in my group suggested I [straight] pin my quilting path ahead and sew on forward. And it works, not a pucker to be had!
I will post the finished product in a few days.
We have a trip planned to the in-laws for Saturday and all will be revealed, finally.
Other verry good news in the family: My stepdaughter GirlE has had a break through as well. Most of you know she suffered brain/spinal tissue damage in a car accident in 2005. She was recovering slowly, needing assistance to walk and her legs' body tissue suffering a cold hard condition. The doctors felt she just needed to pull herself through and that's hard on a 11yo. Her mother has taken her to a 'healer' who reckons her injury is more in her stomach and kidneys as a result of the seatbelt. He has treated her and after a few weeks of severe diarrhea, there are signs of huge improvement. It seems her system is cleaning itself out. (Note to self: learn more about these 'healers'! Anyone know how they work?)
Yippeee!!! They report she will be as good as before the accident. Her mother is hugely convinced and confident --which in itself is a huge win, as we all know our mental beliefs have a huge impact on physical healing too! We are so excited to see her on Saturday. The best is DH--the joy in his eyes when he told me her progress was lovely. I am so happy for him and her.
I'll sign off on that good note! Have a good day!
