Progress Report: Mariner's Sunset

I know, it has been a while. We were on holidays the first part of January and planned to be away the whole month, but circumstances changed and we came home on the 16th. During this time, my a-fib started acting up. Instead of being predictable (caffeine/chocolate intake) it was hiccuping for no reason, and lasting for a day or two instead of a couple hours. I've been in the ER three times for cardioverting (not a lot of fun) and have an appointment with a cardiologist on the 8th. I'm on meds that slow the heart and regulate its rhythm, but make me "excessively drowsy" so moving at snail's pace. Otherwise, I feel okay and am not emotionally worked up about all this.  That wouldn't help anyway!

All that said, sewing is relaxing. I've pinned the leaves in place on Mariner's Sunset and am happy with the look of it. I will quilt them down when my ambition catches up. 

I've also finished the stitching of the bias strips on another Celtic Table Runner, so it is ready to sandwich and quilt. This one is at the request of my daughter. Picture later.

Hoooorayyyyy on that stunning Mariners compass AND the background!

NOT hooray about the other issue, but you have a good attitude about it, surely that helps the situation. 8-))) Good wishes are being sent from me to you.

Your Mariner's Sunset is amazing. I'm hoping one of these days Linda & I will get a chance to see it in person.
