All strung out!!

 Well, the title says it all, right?  I had made these pink string blocks in the spring time, and now?  It is time to GET-ER-DUN!  Thanks to my string swappers and donators,  I was able to make a pink string border.  I only have the last border to go, and it will be the perfect size for a patient quilt.  Yahoo!!

 Another view...
and these are the border wars!  I love days when I can just mess around, figure out what I want to by...just doing it.  Creativity is so much fun, isn't it??

Thanks to every one who might have thought that my last day (shift I worked) was actually my very last day as a nurse...no, I just meant the last day that I worked that week.  Traumatizing!!!  to say the least...again, thanks for the support.

I have to admit, There have been days that I thought I was done with nursing after a very harrowing day! Thanks the Lord for days off!
I love your pink string quilt! Very pretty!

Just love the pink string quilt, it's just wonderful!!!! I don't know where you find the time, these days I just don't seem to find time to sew! After an AM shift, I'm too brain dead to do anything but have a snack, watch the news and fall into bed LOL!!!! Days off go too quickly with chores and laundry! I did get a nice surprise this week though, I have been upgraded to Clinical Nurse Specialist, which is a really nice recognition from my Nurse Manager. It also means more responsibility, but I love my job and am grateful to have such a great team to work with!!
