been over 2 years

It has taken for ever. I got them done to this point. I have 9 of these appliqued to the background fabric. I stitched these while my husband had a health crisis a couple years ago. 

The kite shapes are all hand stitched and cut with template and scissors. I plan to square up the blocks as soon as I get them pressed and then use a sashing and borders to make it larger. 

Well today I am an official Senior Citizen. It is a scary time for me because I keep thinking I have so much to do, but I am slowing down really fast. I want to be productive into the future for quite a while longer. 

I have outlived my Father and all but one of my Grandparents. My Maternal Grandmothr lived to be 84 years old. My Mother lived to be 87 years old. Well can't dewll on that. Need to stay focused and take care of myself. 

Can you tell I am not dealing with this birthday. I had a lot of trouble with my 36th birthday. I knew then that I wouldn't have anymore children. That was hard on me. 

To make up for that I have grandchildren. 

Today will be quiet. I think or was told we maybe would have three little girls this evening while Mom and Dad go out for dinner. Haven't heard any details yet. It maybe will not happen. 

Have a Happy Valentines Day. Chris
