First and foremost I want to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes. My father-in-law came through surgery with flying colors. He is coming home today. There is still radiation and chemotherapy to deal with but we are thankful that he is feeling so good and is able to be back at home.
Secondly, I finished this quilt, which I call Love Beam, just in time to wrap it for the wedding today. I was feeling really stressed about getting it done. Mike plays (in a band) with the groom. At one point during a gig, Dave, the singer, said, "I was afraid to walk between the drummer and his (then) girlfriend (in the audience) because I didn't want to break the love beam." Ever since then Mike and I (and several other people) have just referred to them as The Love Beams. So I have been calling this quilt Love Beam since day one. Obviously, it has nothing to do with the pattern.Well, we have a busy day. Thanks again for all your prayers and positive messages. It is so nice to see them in the inbox. I hope to be posting a bit more often in the coming weeks as I have a few projects in mind.
