Quilt With Us

Good evening everyone. I haven't been in here for awhile now but things have been rather in upheval lately.

First, I hope you all had a very happy mothers day.

On April 15, we put our mother in a nursing home. My sister has developed some health problems of her own and could not handle having my mother there with her any longer. When she is there it is 24 hr. care. She cannot be left on her own without someone there with her. For the past two years, my sister and myself was taking turns looking after her for two weeks at a time but there was no way I could do it all the time by myself.

My mother seems to be adapting to it pretty good. She does a lot of sleeping the same as she did when she was here with me.

I am trying to get some blocks sewn together for the quilt guild as well. Our last meeting will be the first Wed. of June, so I have to have it back by then.

I also have to have a dress made for a lady by the 1st. week of June but the pattern is quite a simple one. It is black dupioni silk.

I have also been doing some redecorating but I have the bedroom finished now and the bedspread and sham finished for it.

I hope you all have had a good spring and have your gardening under control.

This is the last outfit that I made for display at the store. Now I have another outfit that has to be made for display.

It is hard to have your mom in a nursing home. My mom is in one too. She seems to have adjusted but still asks now and then if she can go home with us.
Like your outfit on display. Must be fun working in a fabric store, maybe when I retire I will do that as a part time job.

Your garment on display is really nice. Glad your Mom is adapting to her new home as it is hard if they kick up a fuss. Take care and have a great day.

Muriel, you and your sister are jewels to take care of your mother as long as you could. I have been there and done that and it's not easy. I'm glad your mom is adjusting to her new place and it's my prayer that your sister will get back to good health very soon. The garment on display is really nice. You did a fantastic job on it. Have a great day.

Great job on the display outfit. Sounds like you have some good projects going on.
I'm glad you have your mom settled into a care facility. It is so hard doing the 24/7 care. Right now I am managing okay with just Mom. When I had both her and Dad for over a year it got to be way too much. I hope your sister's health will return soon and that you both have some time to rest and recover. You know your mom is being well cared for and your visits will be so much more enjoyable now that you aren't so worn out.
