Someday I’ll Be Saturday Night

I’ve been going through what are quite possibly the worst couple of weeks of my life and unfortunately the worst isn’t over yet.

The short version is my Mum has mixed dementia/Alzheimer's and is in hospital waiting to go into a care facility.  We also found out that Leo needs triple by-pass surgery as soon as possible so we are waiting for a date for his surgery.  Enough said.

I haven’t been able to concentrate on much anything but I have produced a few mindless items.

I made these for Sandra for Valentine’s Day.

His & Hers Towels 003

They fit in perfectly with her obsession with penguins.

I also managed to do two more baby quilts.  I love this fabric so much, I don’t know what I’m going to do when the bolt is finished.  This pattern is from Mary’s website.

Our Retreat Group was asked to donate a quilt for a fundraising auction at the place where they hold the retreats.  Grace donated a beautiful king sized top and I volunteered to quilt it.  I could kick myself that I didn’t get a picture, but I was anxious to get it finished and on to the next person for binding.  I’m sure someone along the line will get a picture so I can share it then.

For those of you puzzling over my post title, it’s a Bon Jovi song which goes something like this….

Hey man, I’m alive, I’m taking each day and night at a time; I’m feeling like a Monday but someday I’ll be Saturday night……My life’s a bargain basement all the good shit’s gone!

Seriously though, we WILL get through this and things will get better.
