Block 3 of Big Wheels is done.  This means I'm "officially" a quarter of the way done with the blocks.

Block 3 of Big Wheels is done. This means I’m “officially” a quarter of the way done with the blocks.

As I mentioned when I posted last weekend, it was a traveling week for me and I really didn’t get much quilting in.

This is not to mean I didn’t do anything, it’s just that I forgot to bring my magnifying glasses and so I got almost no handwork done. (Although I did do a fair amount of reading.)

It was nice to see Mom again.  One of our “very loose agenda” items was to work on a blue and white Triple Irish Chain for my brother.  I don’t think I even set foot in Mom’s studio since I was kept busy with phone issues and computer issues and *gasp* actual sleep.

When I got back here, Peg had a bit of a health scare.  The friend who subs for me as Peg’s PCA is a paramedic and she was alarmed at some symptoms Peg was showing (shallowness of breath, queasiness, etc.) Basically, I had time enough to drop off my luggage and off we went to the doctor’s and then to the hospital for tests.  All negative, thank goodness!

So all the errands I had expected to run on Thursday afternoon got pushed to Friday.

I was able to squeeze some time in to visit my cousins (in town to attend a funeral, unfortunately.)  It was nice to see them all again, and meet the kids.  I wish it had been under happier circumstances, but after having it hit home just how short life is, I’ll take what I can get.

We were supposed to get more snow today and tomorrow, but it looks like that won’t happen (or at least it will only be a couple of inches.) If there is no snow at all, I might take the chance and snap a few pictures of The Quilt That Shall Remain Nameless from the back porch.

So, that’s my quick update. I should be able to get back on the Thursday schedule again this week. Maybe I’ll dust off one of my “quilts without borders” and see what I can do to get them to the “quiltable” stage.
