Haste makes waste...

As in 2 steps forward and 1 step back...

That is what my day has been like today... Rushing to make some Christmas table-toppers... I should have gotten 4 tops done today, but ended up with 3 due to much un-sewing... rip-it!!! Such is life in the sewing room at times... right!?! 8-)
I figure to get all the tops and binding made, and then get down to quilting them all one after another... in good time I hope! 8-)
Table-topper/candle mat... 8-)
I love making these...
For my Dad, and Joycee's DH, I must say thanks to you all sooooo much for your thoughts, suggestions, and prayers.

Joycee says that her hubby has had heart surgery and is doing well. That is all I know thus far...

We popped in on Dad on Saturday, before the wedding reception, to see how he was doing. He seemed to be his old self. We are taking my parents out for brunch tomorrow to Cora's. From some of yours and family suggestions, we will discuss some specialists that we think Dad should talk to his doctor about seeing... These "episodes" are quite worrisome, and need to be explained as to why they've been happening...

The wedding was wonderful. It was a double wedding, and a 40th anniversary renewal of vows. The mom and dad's 4oth, and the 2 daughters and their grooms wed!!! My DH works with one of the gals that got married... All ceremonies done together in 1-hour... The reception was very big and formal, with about 450 people... Buffet style dinner/dance.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 8-)
Will catch up on your blogs tomorrow...

I sure hope that you get to the cause of your dad's episodes. Not knowing if or when it may happen again is stressful.

Brunch at Cora's. Mmmmmmm!

The marriages/vow renewal would have been so special! How sweet to have them all together - and such a thrifty idea, too!

WOW...you surely had a full weekend and also managed to be productive in the sewing room. Good for you!!! I'm glad to hear about your friend's hubby doing well and your dad, also. I hope you find a specialist that can figure out why he is having these episodes so you don't have to worry about them popping up like that.

Myra, I do hope that the docs find what's wrong with your dad and can treat it.
My, you have been busy, busy, once again. Love the tea cup dolly and the table toppers.

Myra: I think you managed to get a lot done despite life getting in the way. I really like your table toppers. My table isn't far away,hint! (grin) Hope they find out what's wrong with your dad soon.

Good to hear your dad seems to be his old self again. Let's hope the doctors will find what is wrong with him.
