I went to Joann's this afternoon to buy fabric for the back of the last top I finished. I bought a really cool orange fabric with white polka dots. I was kind of undecided about getting the orange, but while I was pondering the decision, a woman who I remembered from quilt camp came along and made the decision for me! It was nice and helpful to have a second opinion, since I like input on big choices like that. I bought some pretty purple for the binding. I figured as long as I was doing such a bright front and back, I might as well go all the way.
Other than that, no other fabric! I was so proud. I also bought a big spool of white thread for my machine and two spools of orange, which I think I will use for the machine quilting of this quilt. I hope that if the quilting isn't perfect it won't show too much on the back. I'll probably quilt it simply, so hopefully the front looks OK too.
I had a doctor's appointment yesterday and I've still been dealing with a sore, scratchy throat, headaches, what have you. My doctor told me that I've got a sinus infection ... fun! I filled a prescription this afternoon, so I hope I'm feeling better soon.
When I got home tonight I saw a guy out walking two adorable beagles ... one a smallish puppy! It made me so sad.
I miss my husband. I miss my dogs. I miss my house.
I miss so much of my "before" life.
