Welcome to this week's list of likes. I did a post with a lot of likes a couple days ago... please go there for a better list. It's been a challenging week again but even when life is throwing stones at you, there is usually a number of good things to like as well.
I get the daily emails from The Writer's Almanac. I haven't had time to read them lately but this caught my eye...
Robert Louis Stevenson, who said, “There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.” And, “Our business in life is not to succeed, but to continue to fail in good spirits.”
Remember this grand home in CT?
I'm a fan of Angela walters Midnight Quilt Show. Our cable went out so I remembered this and watched her show on Edyta Starr's feathered star quilt. Then I found this one with her showing us around the Houston Quilt show this year 2017! How fun! Watch...
Link to it on youtube if it doesn't play here
I remember meeting Jenny Doan one year at Houston... squealing like a piglet... and she's so nice.She does youtube tutorials from Missouri Quilts
I love the Quilter's Quest (a shop hop) here and am glad I got to do it one more time. I did not even try to visit the really far shops but hit the ones I love best and ran into people I love too!
Here are a few photos I took:
Jinny Beyer is one of my favorite people.
If you bring your Jinny Tote bag in to the shop, you receive a free fat eighth of fabric!
As I was leaving I ran into my friends Linda, Patty and Barbara. We caught up a bit, then I moved on to Capital Quilts
At Capital, I got this pattern, imagining one day to find a suitable rental for us to move into, and me making a Christmas quilt with it...
They also had these calorie free lollies!
The big I Like this week came from Milo's surgeon. I was afraid to call them for a follow up appt because I had let some of his PT appts slip in the search for a home to rent. One of the good people who read my words here, wrote to me, asking if she could help from a distance.
She did help me by listening and prayer, and suggestions. She encouraged me to call for an appt on Monday.
I now had a deadline, and made myself call late in the afternoon on Monday and we met with the doctor yesterday. After evaluation, he said we could start leaving Milo out of the brace half the time! He said limit the movement, no rough housing and put it back on for long walks in case we meet up with other dogs.
He said Milo may be able to lead a normal life, time will tell, but that the surgery and brace allowed the ligaments and tendons to retract. It's no guarantee but it's a step in the right direction.
"I like doctor Leisure and I showed him how I prance around and bite at Daddy, and jump up and wiggle! I'm an exceptional wiggler! Why when Mama wanted to clean my ears, and shave some matts I wiggled so much she nipped me!
That's okay! I'll heal as you know! I love having my fur free again to blow in the wind! Mama washed the brace and you should have heard the words she said when it came out of the washer!!! Why in all of my 8 and one half whole months of life I've never heard that! It was all tangled but dang, she figured it out and I had to put it back on for one walk but that's okay because I now know it's not fur-ever.
I've been wearing that thing almost half of my life!I still wear a t-shirt at night to keep me from licking.
Please enjoy these other people keeping lists of their fun this week! And as always, please let me know if you did a post and I'll add yours in !!!
