Happy 4th of July!



Happy Independence Day to our country and Happy 70th Birthday to DAD! He claims the whole country always celebrates his birthday in grand fashion! You're alright, Dad! I seem to make a lot of patriotic quilts, and this was one that used lots of leftovers. Took me 2 whole weeks to make this one, which at the time I thought was a lot! It represented our county in the Ohio's Susquintennial State Fair in 2003.

On a side note--I had my epidural yesterday in the spine with steroids and came out a little bummed thinking I would be 100% better. Then they told me that it could take 3-8 days to kick in. And then when I went out to wander around my studio, I saw the whole stack of things to do. I really can't sit much (sewing or at the computer), so it was a downer day. Today, though, was a much better day! My pain level was way down and I hope it continues! I have resigned myself to the fact that it might be a while before I get back into the sewing 12 hours a day thing. In the meantime, I dream up more quilts to make. And am thankful for a much better day. :)

The log cabins look terrific as the block centers--wonderful quilt any time of year!

Hope the epidural starts working some magic on that back! Sitting for 12 hours is not good but I am sure you get up and stretch, walk around at intervals. I know when I really working hard and the wrok is going well it is hard to want to leave it and have to MAKE myself stop for a bit.

The fireworks are booming (several blocks away) while I write. Your patriotic quilt is great. Happy Birthday to your dad.

And I hope your back gets better soon. Thank goodness we have such wonderful medicines.

Lovely quilt. My uncle is also a 4th of July baby. My family had him convinced that the fireworks were just for him for quite a few years.

Shelina said...

Me too - everybody celebrates my birthday with fireworks. Wow, you can make a quilt in two weeks? It takes me at least two months, and sometimes much much more.

Cheers!
