    I know where number 4 is! It’s right alongside of #9 and the others! I need to get my act together..Haha. How does every month go by so quickly? Have a nice day everyone!

      Diane in MD – Funny, I thought the same thing but I finished #9 just last night and I’ll post it.

      Diane in Maryland. Maybe it’s our name? LOL. I did just finish a throw for a friend with Stage 4 Lung cancer, but it seems like there is so much to do, I just don’t get things finished as quickly.
      I will have to go look on my DD list for number 4. I have gotten behind on everything. My mother always said, “The hurrier I go, the behinder I get!”

        To Diane and all in Central Ohio,
        Just happened to see your comment to me and it made me laugh! You have a lot going on in your life but not sure what my excuse is. I like your mom’s saying as my mom used to say that too! At the end of the day I often think that I have not stopped doing stuff all day but don’t have much to show for it. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Mary surely does have a wonderful support group, who just happen to quilt, with this blog. She really brings a lot of happiness to our days.

    I totally agree with Diane – where do the days go that they come and go so quickly. I have a good chance of getting this one finally finished as it was a table runner I had no desire to quilt. I admire those who can look at a quilt top and “see how to quilt it with a design”. Today I did some cleaning out of stuff and that leads on and on for me. Enjoy the day!

    Does “finished” mean quilted & bound? Or does a flimsy qualify? Asking for a friend…

      Jay – I’m not the quilt police – “finished” is whatever you choose.

    Mary, thanks for asking about my day yesterday. It was better than the day before. We saw the doctor. More blood work. Waiting for results. Another endoscopy will be done Thanksgiving week.

    Today is even better!!! He has been outside all morning trimming bushes. About to call it quits though and rest this afternoon. He’s been anemic since mid spring so it’s probably too much to ask that he would feel top notch quickly. Patience has never been one of my virtues!

    Your new dog is blessed to have found a home with you. Take care, Mary, and have a great week-end.

      Good to know you are having a better day. I am not sure if you remember but my healthy no medicine husband caught a virus early July which ended up putting him in sepsis shock, atrial fib and a stroke. He has been anemic ever since so his energy level is low too. We are lucky he is alive though as every doctor has told us that due to his severity of the viral infection attacking all his organs and the high fevers of 108 , each day he does show improvement. The stroke was the least of his issues and he is pretty much back on that recovery. Our PCP feels the anemic will resolve with proper nutrition eventually as he had every possible blood test drawn several times a day (89 tests to be exact) in his 12 days in ICU and acute care and nothing was abnormal. I have learned life will never be the same for me after this and I am forever blessed he is still here. I take nothing for granted as how fast our lives changed. We are here for you so take care of yourself as being a caregiver of a husband I found to be different than caring for my mom, my Inlaws and a good friend.

      1. Diane in Central Ohio and Squeak, and Buddy

        Kathy in Western NY. Wow, thank goodness your husband is somewhat better and had good care.
        Whew. Keeping you both in my prayers.

      Bonnie in AZ – oh, that is such good news! Trimming bushes is a hard job so I’m glad he will agree to rest later. Best wishes for more good health ahead – it don’t forget to let us know how it’s going! Yea, Blanche is indeed a lucky dog!
