Last Wednesday, we went to Birmingham (UAB’s Kirkland Clinic) for my 6 month MRI and doctor visit. We have been going every 6 months since my first hospitalization in 2010. They have done CT scans, MRIs, and even a liver biopsy. Since diagnosed with Caroli’s Disease, in 2010, the visits have all been focused on making sure that the spots they were seeing on my liver were not cancer. This visit, the doctor was comfortable enough with the “non-change” of the spots that he has now moved my MRI appointments to once a year. Yay, no cancer and less time at the doctor. It was a good day.
While we were in Birmingham, we dropped off 6 quilts to be quilted by Scott’s aunt, Barbara. Five of these I have already shown you, but here is the one I finished the day before we left as a present for a friend. I hope to have it back in June to give to my friend as a housewarming present. I am calling it Bubbles. There is a post upcoming about it’s construction…stay tuned for that.
Today, I was assembling another UFO started by someone else and could not understand why the pattern pieces were not quite fitting together properly.
There is a front yoke, back yokes, Peter Pan collar and facings…all the usual suspects were there. They just weren’t clicking together quite like they should. So, I decided to take a closer look at the pattern pieces. Lo and behold, I found the problem. Can you spot it?
Problem now solved and pattern pieces altered, the dress should be complete in the next day or two. Photos coming soon…
