I'm doing much better these days. Have more energy and I think I've gotten past my bout with the blues. Several people have asked when I'm getting to Paris. Don't know. I still have to be approved by a medical board(s) and get a new Visa and a few other hurdles. It's going to be awhile. I'm thinking April, that way I'm not stressed. Cats and I are enjoying the sunshine and it gives my sweetie a chance to dig into work at a new office without any distractions.
I've been doing loads of quilting on Hot Crazy Love. I'm trying the Request version of Quilters Dream 100% cotton batting for the first time and enjoying it. Don't know if it was just this quilt or the batting, but the more I worked on these blocks the more I felt compelled to quilt them heavier. It just plain looks better.
I have almost all of the blocks done as well as the sashing and corner posts. I'm worried I won't have enough quilting in the borders, but I expect I could do double or triple fans (meaning I'd have either two or three fans about a quarter inch apart, and then a gap of about an inch and then another grouping of the quarter inchies - if that makes no sense check out Gwen Marston and Joe Cunningham's Quilting With Style).
The adorable baby Pokey:
I've been doing very little computering, but loads of book reading. I love having a good library nearby. It has DVDs too, so I was able to check out Elizabeth I with Helen Mirren and the first season of Curb Your Enthusiasm (Larry David is a train wreck - hope it's exaggerated for the show).
Gotta run - ya'll take care.
