Way too quiet, and some medical stuff.
My last 2 posts have elicited virtually no comments, but I don't know if people just don't like what I've done or whether they're not interested. Admittedly, the reversible quilt I'm putting together is very basic as far as quilting blocks go, but I'm making it for mostly beginners, and the class is designed for them to learn a technique of putting a quilt together by finishing each block as you go. The class is only one day (6 hours) and I want the participants to make as much of a quilt as they can in that time, which is why I've chosen a simple block.
On the medical side....my mother was taken to hospital Sunday night. She has acute pancreatits and may need an operation to remove the offending gallstone which has caused it. Here's a photo of Mum with a cheetah and handler at the Auckland Zoo - this was our birthday present to her last year, and my cousin Judith took her. Mum loves cats and had a wonderful time. Thanks, Judith!
As for me, I had my 2 -yearly mammogram today; a quite uncomfortable procedure, but one that all women over 45 in NZ are offered for free as part of a breast cancer screening programme.
