Yesterday, I took advantage of being kidless and finally finished up my doll quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap 4. I had a hard time deciding how to precede after reading all of your feedback the last time I posted about it. In the end, I decided to just use both the white and black and I love the effect that it gives. The piecing on the edges were done on John's advice, who really liked the look. I really hope that my partner likes it. Hopefully I can get it in the mail tomorrow.
Isaiah stayed with John's parents yesterday and he'll be staying with them again tonight. It's giving me a good opportunity to get some things done around the house, things that would probably be undone in a matter of seconds with Isaiah around (you know, like cleaning up the living room). I wanted to thank you all for your comments on the last post. A little bit of an update: John just finished his first round of chemo on tuesday. We found out that if loses his health insurance, that the Leukemia and Lymphoma society can pay for it. That's a big relief. On the job front, I'm still looking. I have a B.S. in Chemistry, but have never used it. I basically got married right out of college and then had Isaiah pretty shortly after. We'll see what comes my way.
I've received several e-mails about donating bone marrow, and I wanted to pass along the info if you are interested in being a donor. John is adopted, so we are relying on the bone marrow donor registry. You can go here for more info on becoming a donor. If you do sign-up, please let us know because it would mean the world to us and we would want to properly thank you.
Also, a quick thank you to an anonymous person who sent us a dinner gift certificate in the mail. I would have thanked you privately, but since there was no name, this only seems appropriate to thank you here. So, thank you, thank you, we really appreciate your kind gesture.
Pheew, that was sure a long post. Now John can stop bothering me about not posting all week :). Hope you all have a good weekend. It looks like it's going to be a beautiful one here!
