More Binding...

It has been a long week! Just really tired and a lot going on here. Anyway, I've been doing a little walking, which is good for me but I hate it. It really burns in my hips and makes my legs hurt but I guess that it what it takes to get my legs stronger.

Mom had her MRI yesterday and goes back to the surgeon tomorrow to see what needs to be done. She is still having some pain and we are having trouble making her keep her sling on! Hopefully we will find out more tomorrow. Her appointment is at 8:30am and I will be going with her.

Yesterday, Hunter had a dentist appointment in Ashland which a little over an hour away. All went fine with his appointment, then I took him to the mall for a haircut and a comic book. Just in and out at the mall I knew there was no way that I was going to try to walk around in there!

After the haircut we had lunch at the Golden Corral, he loves to eat there. Stopped by Hobby Lobby again while I was there. Here's what I got....

I bought the dark grey from there, thought it would look good for a border on the horse fabric that I got the other day. The other two fabrics were bought across the road from where I have to pick up Richard's sawmill blades. The green is 2yards and the blue is 1/2yard just for the stash.

Also picked up these for the stash, just some background fabric. The lighter one is a 1/2 yard piece and the Christmas fabric was on the remnant table 1/4 yard for .40 so I got it too.
Here is the quilt that I just finished the binding on. It is called "A Coat Of Many Colors" it is lap-sized. Still have several more that needs binding.
I'm thinking that I might try to get the borders on that horse fabric this weekend sometime and try to get it on the frame. I figure that if I can walk a little easier now then maybe I can stand there long enough to quilt a lap-size quilt. May get Richard to help me pin it on, that would help some. Well, just have to wait and see how the weekend goes. We are having Lexie a birthday party on Saturday. The weather is supposed to be nice so hopefully we can do it outside. We are planning on a small cookout.
And now, I want to leave you with a photo of Donkey and Jazz. You don't see them together often so I had to snap this photo! Smokey was in the recliner with Richard, Smokey doesn't like either one of them! :)
I guess that is all for now, got to get supper done.

Awww! Sweet! I have missed seeing Donkey! Good for you for doing your walking!! I know it's got to be painful, but it will make you stronger.

and Yay! for you for getting such pretty fabrics! I love the Christmasy one!

Cade loves Golden Corral so much! We havent been there in a while so the other day he wrote out a contract stating that I would take him that week. He made me sign it!! and I did take him! Cade and Hunter would have a great time together!

Great pic of the animals! And you picked up some great fabrics! I am sure that you will be able to get the quilting done. If you get too sore of stiff, you can always quilt in hour or so time frames. Don't give up!!
