Another day off..and a gift!

Sorry for the dark picture...but can you see these wonderful socks? They are hand-knitted...lovely,gorgeous...and made for me by Kaaren at The PaintedQuilt. I love them so much...thank you so much, Kaaren! Please see her blog, she has a first Friday freebie pattern each month that are wonderful.
I put the binding on the cheddar cheese and crackers quilt...I have really enjoyed hand quilting this one.
And here is the state of the big blue sampler! Many pieces yet to go...probably about 60% done. Lots of progress, though.


***********************Nurse's notes**************************

Some of you will remember Carrie, the little patient I mentioned last fall. Guess what? After 6 months in the hospital....she went HOME!!! Miracles do happen, and she is definitely one.

Have a super day!

The binding looks great on your little quilt, really frames it. Your sampler is looking fantastic, can't wait to see it finished. And how wonderful after 6 months to finally go home. My husband spent 5 months in hospital after a spinal injury 300 km from where we live - I thought the day would never come when we would get back home and get some little bit of normality back into our lives.
