Well, I have spent a very intensive week....not much with the mystery quilt that I have been working on, but instead finding a new group home for my mother. She was in the original home for a little over a year, but in that time her roommate has deteriorated mentally. The lady started talking to herself and to my mother most of the night and it was impossible for Mother to sleep.
Her doctors want her to sleep well at night so that she feels well enough in the daytime to stay active and keep moving. So I recognized that this could lead to long-term serious consequences for Mother.
The good news is that we found a really lovely 6 resident home that is quite a bit closer to my house than where she is now. The roommate is friendly and active and we think that she and my mother could forge a strong friendship. She is really looking forward to moving into the new home on Tuesday.
That said, I did make **some** progress on Step 3 of Bonnie Hunter's Orca Bay Mystery Quilt.
|Gotta love those little teapots!|
I started sewing a few half squares together this morning.
Well, I have lots of catchup to do, so maybe I will cut and sew in the little bits of time that I can steal away from my other duties this week. I really, REALLY, want to keep up with the rest of all the MANIAC quilters out there who are also following Orca Bay.
Bonnie, I am so thankful for this mystery quilt. You are helping me stay grounded. And I love getting to be a part of your blog links!
