NOT SUCH A GOOD REPORT

This afternoon I went to see the foot surgeon and I didn't get a good review. Apparently, I have an infection that has set in so it has taken me back some. He did some digging without any numbing and I thought that I was absolutely going to kill him. I am on a very strong antibiotic now and instead of soaking in epsom salt, I have to soak in peroside. If it is no better but next Friday, guess what, he is opening the incision again. I can hardly wait. I guess I will have to buy some more fabric to cheer me up--what do you all think?

I have posted some pictures of the quilt that I just got back from the quilter today. Perry's granddaughter, Katie, was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Last year, Perry made a quilt and it was raffled off as a fundraiser. This year, I am donating a quilt to be raffled off and here it is. You will have to watch Perry's blog to watch for the details on how you can bid on this quilt. It was a BOM that I did from Homestead Hearth and it is made out of the Moda Chocolat line. My daughter even commented how beautiful it turned out. I love it.
Here's a picture of some of the star blocks

Couldn't get the whole quilt in. I believe it between a queen/king. So what do you gals think?
Hugs, Cindy

Cindy, this is a beautiful quilt! Dana, my daughter, will be tickled pink that you have done this. I will put out the word when it gets here and she decides how she wants to handle this. Thanks so much for doing this!
