The first and best great thing is that Mom is home from the hospital and doing well. I will call her tomorrow and talk to her. I didn't like her to talk too much today because it made her cough, and with that incision, well, it just scared both of us. Dad said she was sleeping earlier; a real good thing!
The other great thing is that I made my first-ever-in-my-whole-life pillow with welting! Yes, thanks to encouraging comments from my dear Aunt Katie from Primitive Woolens, Debbie from Woolen Sails and Magnolia Bay Quilts, I decided to tackle the pillow. I had a home decorating book with directions, so I sat down at my new magic sewing machine and I didn't get up until I'd finished. Tomorrow I will get a form for it. I am so happy! I really did it! The Kitten helped all along the way.
The only downside to the pillow experience is that, since I am allergic to wool, I sneezed so much that I got a bloody nose. That cinches it; I'll never join the hooking ranks.
