I love this set. I love it for several reasons, the main reason is because the lady I made it for seems to be a pretty fantastic human being. I don't sew for dorks as you all know, but this lady is quite a swell lady. She read one of my blogs complaining about not having anything to read, so you know what? She sent me some books along with her husbands uniform top! How awesome is that? I have read them all. Thank you so much! I made her a little wallet for a thank you. I would have made her a quilty hug...but I just don't have the time.
I want you all to have quilty hugs! I have several here at the house so I guess I should do a class. hummmmmm....How should I do this? Maybe a quilt along? I have in mind a very strippy shrug quilt. Like a shawl. I have to finish up my bags first, but then get ready ladies we are going to sew! I am going to kick it off here in Alice with a little class for the ladies in town. After we all work out the kinks I will post it here on the blog. Let me know if you want to play along here at the house (I supply the fabric...you supply the food) we will make it a party.
Next issue is vision. Who among you has vision problems? I want to know about those of you with reduced peripheral vision. I swear lately it looks like I am looking down a foggy tunnel. My central vision is clear as a bell but my peripheral vision SUCKS. I have been to the site DR several times with this issue and I am waiting for an appt with the "real" eye DR here in town. He left for the holidays, so hopefully he will return soon. My vision tests perfect 20/20 and all that, but my peripheral vision is driving me nuts.
For those of you who are new to the blog, we are stationed in a "remote duty station" basically it means that the medical care available here in town is similar to that available in the early 1960s. If you want anything more than a CT scan you have to take a 4 hour flight to Adelaide. I am not complaining...maybe this is just God telling me it is time to go back to reality. I don't know.
Oh on another note...I saw the Inaugural Speech on Yahoo. I did not vote for Obama, but that man is a fine speaker. My prayers are with him and all that he wants to accomplish. I pray for wisdom for him and the people he appoints to advise him. They will all need it. What a kettle of fish!
