Seabirds & Cattails - No. 34
I just finished quilting "Seabirds & Cattails" my 34th quilt in my Commission.
One more quilt to make and it is complete!
I had an interruption this week when my husband came down with what we thought was the a stomach virus Saturday. So I went to our store and worked, leaving him home to rest and get better. That did not happen. Instead he got worse on Sunday. So early Monday morning it was off to the doctor who immediately sent him to the hospital. He had an infection that had his white blood count twice as high as it is supposed to be.
After lots of antibiotics, pain injections, etc. etc. He slowly got better and I brought him home yesterday. In the meantime we are in a thaw and I was worried about our still unresolved roof at our antique store. So after settling him at home I drove down there and walked in only to find a dry floor where it had leaked a few weeks ago. Suddenly I could here dripping.
Now it was leaking in Bob's workshop room in the store. So I called our insurance agent and began mopping, moving stuff out of the way, and grabbing any container in the store to collect water.
Four hours later......it is cleaned up, the roof is shoveled and the insurance agent and cleanup crew is leaving. I am thinking of the expression "When it rains it pours." and in my case it is oh so true.
So we need to stay closed today and I took the opportunity to finish no. 34.
Question: should I add eyes to the birds or not? I have small black crystals I had planned to add but now I am not sure. Let me know your opinion.
Hopefully nothing else will happen and I can complete my last quilt next week.
