I hope all of you had a really nice Mother's Day. It was a nice day for me, we enjoyed it. Mark took for a drive after we went to church. We wanted to go and see Trillium Lake, it is up by Mt. Hood. When we reached the turnoff, there was a sign posted that the road was closed and we'd have to hike in, and we weren't really dressed for it, so we decided to come back in a few weeks :) We ended up stopping at a river and fishing for awhile and taking in the scenery. It was a beautiful day up there.
So, I was talking to my mom a few weeks ago. She has been sick from diabetes, and her kidneys are failing. It has been so difficult for her. It is hard to stand off to the side and watch it happen, knowing you can't help at all. She started dialysis recently and has told me she gets really cold during the process (they have a machine that removes all of the blood from your body, filters it and puts it back into your body) It's a 3-4 hours process and she sits there and freezes :( My poor mom! I told her I'd send her a quilt so she could use it during her dialysis. It worked out perfect that I had this Spring Star quilt top finished and I had bought flannel backing for it. So, I used a hi-loft polyester batting, and now it is really warm and snuggly. I quilted lines going in one direction, otherwise the quilting would pucker badly. I think she'll like it, it's something pretty to look at, and it's warm.
This week will be a busy one, but a good one. Have a happy Monday and enjoy your week :D
