Another Old Finish

Tsk, tsk, tsk, I peeked at the back and found another old finish without a label. I say it was done in 2004 or 2005. This is Crow's Foot quilt by Cheri Saffiote from the book Wednesday's Best by Indygo Junction, Inc. It was another great quilt kit from the shop in Cedarburg that is no longer there.
I am counting down the days until my surgery. "8". It will be really great to get this health crisis, insurance problems, medical bills, and everything else associated with this large bump in the road behind me and my family! Maybe someday I will write more about it. I never wanted to be one who wrote all about my health problems in letters, facebook, or here. I want to hear about how others are doing and not talk about my problems. My hospital stay last month was really the stuff of fiction. I tried to keep my humor about it. I tried to be strong and brave for everyone. I tried to be happy throughout it all as best as I could. I never really mentally dealt with the nightmare of it all. When my health improved I tried to get busy and with children you honestly just have to move on and there is no time to wallow in self pity. This is a good thing. I just hope that my upcoming surgery will turn out fabulous because I just don't know if I could go through all of this again. God was so merciful to me though and I know that with Him on my side I can endure a lot, but is it selfish to just wished to be spared? :) Enough! Time to get busy! It is cold, damp, and raining here but I am snug and warm in my wonderful home for which I am so thankful! I hope that you are snug and warm today too!
