Turning the Corner

I was happy to wake up this morning to no spinning rooms. My vertigo seems to have stabilized. I was a little woozy for a couple of hours, but took Scooter for a long walk in wonderful warm sunshine. I spent part of the morning getting ready for Mark and Jayme to arrive tomorrow. They just sent me a text that they are in Grant’s Pass and should be here by lunch time.

This afternoon, I worked on my Twelve by Twelve piece. I have to stop showing photos, now!! I also weeded my veggie beds and the landscaping in the front yard. I followed this up with some extreme grocery shopping and a trip to the 47th Ave Farm to pick up my CSA veggies.

I went out on a limb this month and entered 3 different quilt shows. Sea of Salt, which you see up there, is going to Art Quilts Lowell 2011: The Sea. This makes me very happy and has boosted my sagging morale.

We are really looking forward to Mark and Jayme’s visit. They haven’t been here in almost two years. They are stopping here briefly and then going up to the San Juan Islands for a little vacation and kayaking. Then they will come back here. Jayme will go back to SF, but Mark will stay and build our new deck for us.

Mr C has it almost completely dismantled. There is no turning back, now.
