I’ve used it every day. Chemo coming up so I’m sure I’ll use it then too. I love it

Thought you were doing radiation, not chemo.  I know they often do both.

A few days ago DH saw a post on FB that a photographer who lives in the neighborhood was getting rid of quilts she used to use for background.  

She said they were old but still good enough for cutter projects like pillows of teddy bears.  So now they are mine.. Many of them are hand quilted.  They have tear, worn fabric(gone), frayed binding etc that well loved quilts often have.  I'll post pictures here.  If anyone is interested in one or more, let me know.  I will definitely share.

This last one is just a top.

Sounds great.  Have fun but don't get lost in the weeds and overgrown grass!  Let me know how it goes.

 

Well, I am glad they are *finally* being delivered to their forever home.  haha  You will not believe how heavy they are.  They have taken a circuitous route from Bluff Dale, Texas (where my friend lived), to Irving, Texas (where I lived), and then went with Patty to who knows where all, and now coming in for a landing to your place.  I hope after all this you will enjoy them.  And I apologize for the breakage, but the box was like that when I got it.  I never opened the box to see exactly what was broken, because I was afraid I couldn't get everything back in the box.  Thanks, Patty, for getting them there!

Well, they made it to Ft Collins, Judy needs to get out there and mow!!

I never took things out of the boxes, so don't  know what is broken. But never dropped the boxes--LOL, so don't  know what is broken.

But, Pirate, they are at Judy's place,  so now to you can arrange to get them!

Makes a good story!!

I imagine that the next time that Judy & David make a trip to Fort Collins *and* if they can figure out a way to transport them back to California, I can do a road trip to her house to pick them up.  :-)

it *is* a good story!

Jonna ... how is it that you had them originally?
