I am finally feeling human. I ventured out today and picked up Mom to do a little grocery shopping. The coughing is less and I only had one "coughing fit" in the store. After several days of being down, it is feeling good to be up and around.
Here is a picture of the stitchout I did of the border design. I still have some tweaking to do to make it as nice as I would like, but I was pleased with how it looks. I would certainly use it on a quilt and have lots of ideas on how to use this method for similar designs.
Weather here continues to be really nice for winter in Montana.
