Dear everyone!!! How are you? Guess what?? I have the center of the blue and yellow sampler pieced!!! I just need to do some hand work, applique to finish on 3 sections, then it all goes together. Then two borders...then piece the backing (I have the fabric, a gift, was to be thrown out by a co-worker-she gifted it to me). Then it will be off to the quilter! A silly piece of me wants to hand quilt it, then I came back to reality. NO way I can hand quilt a king-size quilt in the limited amount of sewing time I have available to me. All this fabric came from the stash. I estimate about 12 yards used, at least. I have only a few little pieces of yellow left. Yippee!!
Jeanne of www.spiralj2.blogspot.com. made a wonderful Christmas quilt...I loved it at first sight. I have very few Christmas fabrics, so I made my blocks with just the reds and greens I had. I am making 30 of these blocks. Fun and simple compared to the huge quilt above!
A compromising Situation! ********************Nursing Notes*******************
Well, I had a pretty easy day last shift...shhh, don't tell my work. Even though it was busy, everyone was stable in our nursing unit, no one coding or crashing. I had a critical stable heart valve transplant, and a chest pain patient. Well, the chest pain patient was 47 years old. I heard in report that he had lots of ladies visit him...and was married.
Soooo, when I went in to assess him, he was polite, nice enough, very stable. Next time I went in at 08:30 to give him his meds, and his girlfriend was there. Keep in mind, he is married. He said his wife was coming at noon and under no circumstances was I to mention the girlfriend to the wife...all this said right in front of the girlfriend, who just listened and smiled when he said this. I gave him his meds...and left, really not my business. A few minutes later, I took him his breakfast and ice and water. I noticed his gown was off, just draped across his nether regions. OK...later about 10:00 I noticed his heart rate going up...quietly knocked on the door, went in and...well...there was a reason his heart rate was up...no clothes, girlfriend draped across him, and you get the idea...I quietly left.
About 30 minutes later, his heart rate was down to normal, and I noticed girlfriend quietly slipped out of the room.
About 12:00, his wife arrived. He was all smiles and kisses, said to her he missed her so much, couldn't wait to be home...with a very sharp look at me. I did not say a word...anyway, wife left about 6pm, and he immediately got on the cell phone.
About 6:30 PM, another very pretty lady came in to see him. Off went the gown down to his waist...and I witnessed a very passionate kiss occur. At this point, I called the doctor and asked if we could transfer the patient off the critical unit, because he passed his "stress test" for today!
Whewww!! If he did not have chest pain handling that many ladies...he was OK!! As the patient advocate, I could not say a word...but I really wanted to mention something to the wife. What do you think??
Anyway.....that was my compromising situation!!!
Have a most wonderful day!
