Thankful Thursday

I am thankful that I got my daughter's quilt finished last week.  She chose the fabrics, chose the pattern, together we made the top, and I pin-basted and quilted it. We made the top in May, and I started the pin-basting and quilting some time after she left.

Then Roger had his stroke August 2 and I did not get to quilt any on it for at least 3 months...and then only a line or two here and there.  And that was machine quilting.

I am thankful that I took Roger to the strip pits yesterday and let him try driving...he did okay there.  Not ready for a busy city by any means...

And I am so very thankful that my older daughter now lives about 3½ hours away.

I am linking to Michelle's Thankful Thursday.

Your quilt is beautiful. What makes it really special is that you worked on it together with your daughter. Each week it seems like Roger is getting a little back. After reading the post I was wondering what Roger would say HE is thankful for. Of course his family and his wonderful wife. Has he talked about his recovery and his feelings about his limitations? I am wondering because Terry and I talk about how limited he is now with his RA and I see some limits mentally either dementia or from mini strokes or perhaps medications. It's good to think about what you are thankful for. It resets your balance, I think.

You do have a lot to be thankful for! I'm so glad that Roger is getting that much better to try driving. The quilt looks great! You are so talented. It is great that she is closer to home now. Have you been over there yet?

If you let Roger keep practicing often, who knows what he will be capable of:) But I can imagine you're thankful he has come this far:) I love the subtle differences in this quilt! Beautiful!
