Joy for Jackie

My friend who was in the near fatal accident in January has been flown back to San Diego and is continuing her recovery but it will be a long road.  I finished the top of her quilt "Joy for Jackie" and sent it to the quilter.  I won't be able to give it to her before I leave for Asilimar next week, but it will be quilted and bound before I get home.  She can finally have visitors so will go and see her before I leave-as well as my dear friend, Ginny who has a badly broken ankle.

There have been a few pregnancies in the counseling departments in our district so I have been working almost full time.  I do not like being quite so busy!  I will find out on Monday if a counselor at the schoolsite where I am currently working would like to work 4 days a week.  If so, I would work the 5th day every week.  That translates to 4 days a month at per Diem which equates to 15 days at sub pay.  I am praying!  Life would be much easier and I would be part of a team again-which I miss as a sub.
Lastly, I am headed to Assilimar for a class with Susan Carlson next week.  8 of us from Friendship Quilters are going and 3 of the 8 are in Susan's class.  I am pretty excited!

My word, your quilts are beautiful! Jackie will be thrilled with hers, I'm sure.
My eyes are poppin' out with antique Singer appreciation over your new girl. I'm usually not demanding, but I must see more of her when you have the time to share some close-ups. I can tell she's a beauty.
Hope your trip is wonderful. Have a great time!

Well done. I have just completed a small quilt top for a friend who was widowed for the second time the week before she was to retire! We are so blessed to be able to give something special at these times of need. So glad your friend is on the road to recovery and she will certainly need your support in the coming months.
