With apologies to Melanie and Sue for being late in posting my block, here is Block #3.
When I started quilting years ago, I saw a picture of a Bridal Wreath block that I thought I'd make someday. Larry and I were engaged, and it just seemed like it was appropriate. But the applique held me back; those were the days when the only fusible web was Stitch Witchery which was a bugger to work with. I didn't have the patience to do the handwork. A full-sized quilt done with just several of these blocks would be just beautiful, I think. Maybe someday......
So life goes on here following Larry's heart attack. I still can't believe it happened to him; he's 56 - seems so young to me. The same time he had his, Audrey told me of someone she know that suffered a massive heart attack. She was 44 and subsequently died. We've had a ton of company and phone calls since his attack; and more and more we're hearing of people with stents, people who required surgery, and those who didn't survive.
We've made changes to our diet, and we're exercising more. He's struggling with quitting smoking; I'm praying my heart out that he will. A year ago at this time, he would have been at the golf course or the driving range every day. Now he hits a few balls into the field behind our yard. My sewing has taken a back seat as I sit on the deck to keep an eye on him. And will I ever quit running to my office at work when the switchboard operator tells me he's on the phone?! I'm sure things will settle down eventually; it'll just take time.
