Hello everyone and Happy 4th! Hope you are enjoying your holiday! I've made one quilt block in the last week or longer. It's the Stash Bee block for July for Hive One.
This block is for Sarah, the Queen Bee for July. She chose the colors and the pattern. The free pattern is on the Moda Bake Shop website and also on the Stash Bee blog. I've been working on the quilt top that I'm stitching up so that I can tie it in between taking care of Lola.
She's having trouble walking. I've taken her to the vet who needs to do an x-ray but who doesn't think her legs are broken. The vet did find a mass in her abdomen. So, to make a long story short, Lola is home with pain meds and I'm carrying her everywhere. She is a solid 20 pounder and when I pick her up, she cries, no matter how careful I am. Of course, the vet moved everything and palpated her all over and Lola never uttered a sound after I told the vet how she was crying when I picked her up...sigh. I certainly found out how weak I am--no upper body strength at all. Also, every time I lift her, I think about how many "Lola's" I am carrying around in the form of extra fat. If I lost all the "Lola's" I need to, I'd probably be able to run a marathon. I have finished the yellow basket quilt (finally) and will be selling it to help pay for Lola. I'm taking photos of it this afternoon. Pray for me that it sells and please pray for Lola that she doesn't have something horrible and life threatening. Have a happy 4th! XO from Bev
