Quilting and Soccer...smile

I've been busy, busy, busy, making a king size quilt by hand sewing.  It's a 1 inch hexagon quilt using the Tillie's Mosaic as the inspiration.  It started out as a nice project to bring to the hospital while my daughter, Jennifer, got her various forms of treatment for cancer, over the last year.  My progress has been slow, as some days I just didn't feel like doing much, let alone sew.  But, Hooray, Hooray, glory day!, Jennifer finished her last round of chemo a couple of weeks ago, and tomorrow we go in for all day testing, head to toe.  The Dr.s are confident the cancer is in remission and she can get the line out at the end of October.  This is no port, if only...it's a central line, which runs up the inside of her and comes out in two lines exiting out her side.  That will truly be the end of the ordeal.  

As you can see I am in heaven today, because there is a soccer game on while I'm working on my quilt!  This is not my beloved Liverpool or Spain, but, for me any soccer fix is good.  As you can see my progress is coming a bit slowly and as I'm having to make up the pattern, more or less, as I go.  I'm changing it from the original pattern by Karen Witt.

I'm so glad to hear your daughter is almost done with her treatments!!!! I've been following your journey for months and keeping you in my prayers. Good luck at the next Dr.'s visit.

Well done on finding a soccer match to watch.
My wine is in the fridge cooling ready for tonight's game. I'm sewing today so will have some hand work to do tonight while the game is on.

Love and hugs gina xxx
