Another Safe Arrival

My Miniature Booty 2 quilt has arrived at its new home in Oregon with Dorothy ,so now all can be revealed !

I wasn't quite sure which of Dot's colour preferences to use and then I came across this pattern for a 1890s Reproduction quilt and decided to go with the 'Patriotic ' scheme ! It did turn out slightly larger than the Group dimensions ( Sorry Toni !!) but it would have been such a shame to try and alter it in my opinion ! Anyway, Dot seems pleased with it and I certainly enjoyed making it ! Thanks again to Toni for all her work in organising the Swap !

As this is a short post , I'll just take a minute to update the 'chest' situation ! After 10 days of the (hated!!) nebuliser, steroids and jabs (my rear end feels like a pincushion at the moment I can tell you !!!) it seems I still have some congestion lurking so more medication and more tests looming up to try and get to the bottom of things ! I won't bore you with all the details, but suffice to say that I am breathing a lot better, managing to walk a bit more and slowly getting back into my normal routine ! I am so glad to be feeling better as we are due to go to Paris for the day on 28th and I would hate to have to cancel that !

My weight - well that went by the board with all the bedrest, lack of exercise etc, but although I've not lost any weight at least I haven't gained either so at least I can start off again weighing a little (!!) less than last time. One thing for certain , off it must come !!!!
