And a little (lot!) more applique!!

 I am making progress on this quilt...I am on a bit of a roll with it, as a matter of fact! 
I will have some time to sit and applique coming up, so I did a lot of prep this morning.  The unfinished blocks look like spiders, somewhat, don't you think??

Nurse's notes:


I have been in charge again lately on my floor, but yesterday, we had so many patients coming in that I had to take patients AND be in charge.  One stable heart attack patient (younger than I am), and one bypass surgery, straight from the surgical suite.  I loved the day yesterday, and was quite energized throughout today, too!!  Coffee?  Or estrogen?  I am not sure which chemical it is, but what a lovely day, with lots of accomplishments today!!  I am off to make supper and clean a bit.



Hugs to all!!


Julie





Have a super day!

Glad you'll have time to add the flowers soon. The stems do look like spider legs.🕷🕷

Whether they look like spiders or jellyfish, I know you will turn them into charming blocks to end up with a gorgeous quilt. I believe what you had yesterday was a serious case of I-love-my-job syndrome. This disease has very serious effects on people but it's not fatal. The most common symptoms are a peak of adrenaline, a very alert brain/reaction time, with a loss of time and of self-awareness. Some sufferers even forget to go to the toilet for an entire day! It's very serious but for most people, it is also ... enjoyable! Well, I do anyway! lol. Oh! I forgot to mention; there's no cure. Enjoy! ;^)

This is the beginning of such a fun quilt. I can tell already by the colors and pattern you're using.

I'm so far behind in my blog reading.... I scrolled through your posts that I hadn't read (maybe a dozen of them?!) and just wanted to say I hope you have/had a happy birthday. You have sweet friends to send such wonderful gifts.

I was thrilled to read that you had a good albeit busy day at work. The good ones more than make up for the bad, huh?

The blocks do look a bit like spiders but I know they will soon be covered with blooms. Have fun stitching.

I remember a day when all five of my hospice patients were younger than me. Our son was just 7 at the time. I came home and bought more life insurance.
