Ready For The Fancy Stitching...

Yesterday was actually a beautiful day. The sun was shining, temperature was moderate with low humidity (I love days like that here in south Florida!), and I finished the Lavender Dreams quilt top!
I assembled the backing, packed everything up and took it down to Kathy. She will take the top, add the batting and backing, and mount it on her frame so her long-arm machine can do all the fancy stitching that will really make the quilt sing.

When she's finished with her work (next week), I'll add the binding and it will be all done - just in time for me to present it to Miss Snoopy Pants' (aka, my younger sister, Diana) when she flies to Florida in December to celebrate my birthday with me.
Thank you to everyone for your prayers and good thoughts for Kes. The little stone passed yesterday morning while she was at the vet's office, however the larger stone was going to pose a problem. I love our vet and her entire staff, so I didn't fret about Kessie's care at all. I knew they would take good care of her for me.

Kes underwent surgery early afternoon on Friday and is now resting comfortably at the 24 hour emergency clinic in Sarasota. She stayed overnight for pain management and IV fluids. I'm told I'll be able to pick her up later this afternoon or Sunday. Of course, I'm hoping that it's today. I want her back here at home!
One last photograph to share with you from Thursday night's concert. You can see that Handsome and I were on the stage at the same time. It was so much fun doing the Veterans' Day program! (You can click on the image to see a bigger picture, and I even drew arrows over each of us!)

Have a great weekend, guys and dolls. See you tomorrow with Kes updates.

Oh, poor Kes, I think I missed a post, have to go back one and read it but it sounds like kidney stones. Poor thing. And poor you! It is horror when your pets are in pain.
Gonna keep my fingers crossed he will be home this afternoon. Is Fez missing him?

How fun to be performing with your hubby.

Oh that poor puppy! I feel so bad for him, but I know you'll all give him lots of TLC when he comes home. Little Fez must be missing him something awful. :( ... Your quilt is just gorgeous, Donna. I love those beautiful fabrics!...I clicked on the photo and saw you both...how cool! We're going to need a video, you know...Lots of get well wishes and hugs to dear Kes, and xoxo's to you, sweetie. Paulette ;)

Knowing full well what a kidney stone feels like, I have a lot of sympathy for those who have to endure it, both 2- and 4-legged. The lavender quilt will be lovely when all fancied up. When I was a teenager, I always wanted a lavender room. I still don't have one! LOL

Great news about Kes and no more stones. Kes will also be so happy to be home with you.
Even with all of life's mishaps you managed to complete your quilt top on time. Great job.
Love the photo of you and Handsome. That performance must have been so rewarding on Veterans Day to honor America and it's peace keepers. Happy weekend...

Hi Donna, I hope you got to bring Kes home today. I loved the quilt it is going to be so pretty when it is finished. I just know your sister will love it. You and Handsome make a very good looking couple. I been keeping up on your quilt even though I don't get to leave a comment. The month is half gone, but where. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.

Thank goodness she is ok. Boy oh boy what a day that was!
The quilt is beautiful. I can't wait to see the quilting that is done to it.
I know you had the best time at the performance. What a great thing for both of you to enjoy it together like that. Fun!

Oh I hope sweet girl is home with you now. THAT IS SO SCARY!!! Glad she had a great doctor & that all things turned out well. I hear that these stones are VERY painful! And how did Fez handle Kes being gone? Take care & give her a big soft hug for me. Charlene

I'm so delighted Kes is doing well after the surgery. Poor baby. Give her a little kiss from me. Your lavender quilt is so very lovely. You did such a wonderful job with it. Theresa
