Thank you to all my blog readers who have left lovely comments on my blogpost last week and emailed me to send healing thoughts and good wishes for my brother. He has finally been discharged from the hospital and is continuing his recovery at home. This photo shows the "cutting of the hospital bracelet" ceremony! What a relief! They sent him home with three chest drain tubes still in (which freaks me out) but he is so relieved to be in his own bed and not eating hospital food, that I am sure his recovery will go much faster now.
I have been visiting the Bluewater Quilters Guild, which I will write more about when I get some photos to post. I am thankful to my sisters (one who came from Michigan and one who took a day off work) and to my daughter, who all took turns staying with my brother so that I could go to Owen Sound to do my trunk show and teach a class. It was a wonderful break for me. Now I am home, and catching up on my life. These are the bills that awaited my return...aren't the colours of the Canada Post stamps so nice?? (OK...obviously I need to play with some colourful fabric if I am admiring the colours of the stamps on my bills!!).
And I am baking muffins to use up the old bananas (and to relax). It sure feels good to get back to my life and get organized again. BTW I almost missed the registration date deadline for my own guild's quilt show! I look forward to doing some quilting on my April UFO.
