Hope you are almost done!!! I am:)

Got my last customer quilt pu and did a few Project Linus quilts and then took Dazi's handles off so I can send back to Nolting so they can fix her light:) yea!!!! I have had an Ikea light velcroed to the top of machine... worked but the cord kept getting caught on stuff and Bob:) Not funny when you are quilting!

MIL has great days and then other days..... feels as if she is a burden one minute and then ready to go somewhere the next. Dementia is really a strange disease! And she is only in the early stages. They looked at a local assisted living center and she said it was nice but she wasn't ready... may not be her choice:( Of course there is a long waiting list. They will look at the centers near my SIL this week as they are heading back tomorrow but will be back at Christmas since I am hosting:)

Was not a fun week for me but then I don't complain much but I had Cedar fever where I wished they would pull all of my teeth as they hurt SO …
