I want to thank all of you for your help getting through this. You really made it possible, with your emails, comments, and warm wishes.
The other things that helped me through it: My KINDLE, full of great books. My MP3 player, full of great audiobooks. My Dresden Plate quilt, which I worked on in the early morning hours when the worry wouldn't let me sleep, and which I finally managed to finish hand-quilting. And my Amish Diamond in a Square quilt, which is what I'm hand-quilting now. That will keep me busy while I'm waiting in all those airports on Sunday.
If you look on the right side of my blog, you'll see I've put up a new little link.
I love love love string quilts. They have to be my favorites. I have never participated in a sew-along before, but I could really get excited about this one!
