I have a friend who has had Breast Cancer. On the second operation, they infected her with Staph infection. The combination gave her heart failure. So I decided to make her a prayer quilt. Well, I got it done, all except the binding. Then I realized I had three quilts finished except for the binding. Next I realized that I didn’t like the way I was doing the bindings so was postponing it. This quarter at class I decided to finish those three and learn to do it right. It sounds easy but a quilter wants the corners to be neatly done and the finish off done right, and I learned that even when you buy binding it is folded wrong, as for use and longevity it needs to be a double fold. So I have gotten my friends all done except for the final hand closing. And I will immediatly do the next two so hopefully I won’t forget how to do it. Then we plan a trip up to Bellingham to visit her, go out to eat, and maybe explore the area a bit.
We are also studying with a class at church, The Renovare group activities that help us to practice our religious beliefs. So learning is still happening even in the later years. (But I still have newly acquired difficulty with technical appliances which I never had trouble with when I was younger.)
