Pre-post, take one

A wonderfully bright, Asian-inspired quilt top magically appeared while I was out weighing in tonight. This one is courtesy of Shari, who is mighty fine at wielding a rotary cutter. The blocks are perfectly perfect in every way. I like that about Miss Shari... a touch of the OCD makes everything better. This quilt was made to (sort of, a little, pretty muchly) enhance the sky blue ceilings in the shop. Oh, yes, eventually I'll stop trying to color-coordinate the quilts to Clementine's. Now just isn't the time. Alexandra Stoddard would approve, I'm just sure of it.
These photos are a study in sleepiness. Ever thought you could sleep standing up? Eli did just that on Monday afternoon. You can't tell it, but his little knees would buckle every few seconds, but he didn't wake up. Please ignore the obvious dried cereal milk that Lilly can't remember to wipe off the chairs after breakfast. To have such simple chores to neglect. I don't have an excuse for why the chair isn't at the table, either, except to say Eli mostly uses the furniture for evil and 'not good'... and really naughty, with an occasional "What the hell were you thinking?" thrown in for good measure.
These photos are really just fodder for the "Where's Eli sleeping now" album that Thimbleanna got me started on when she made her first trek into the shop last year. He really just shuts it down at random moments. I hadn't noticed how funny he was till she pointed her ginormous camera at him that first afternoon. Now it's gotten to be something of a habit. Sometimes I stalk my children...
By the time most of you read this, I'll just be coming out of my drug-induced nap. Thanks in advance for all the well-wishes. I expect once the throat settles down, I'll be able to catch up on blogs and leave medicated comments all over the bloggy-sphere. Tomorrow I shall show you the side of the building with it's sample paint job. Sadly, no other commentary is required.

Good luck!!! They are giving you the good drugs right? So you'll be in happy land for a while. I can't wait to read your comments (evil grin)

Riley has fallen asleep just like that but standing in front of the couch. His legs would do the same thing....his tummy was sort of holding him up enough so he wouldn't wake either.

Little boys really are the best entertainment around aren't they?

I love that quilt! I don't see anything wrong with coordinating the displays to the shop. Perfect - makes everything look better.

there's a little get well package that doesn't contain food on it's way. Don't want to derail your progress. Doing enough of that to myself. g

I need to learn how to quilt! But I need to know how to sew first I think. :) That quilt is gorgeous!

Thinking of you today! That little Eli is SO cute! It's going to be a sad, SAD day when he figures out that you're not supposed to sleep on the spot!

She's back again, Robin said...

My little Eli - haven't gotten to see the kids lately - I actually am missing them.
Good thoughts and pain meds for you today sweetie...
My Mike is home as of Monday afternoon - we will meet with the oncologist soon - as for now he has Stage 1 lymphoma in the nodes (not nads, you bunch of heathens) we still have our sense of humor. He finally stopped draining out of his tube in his side - more than a lung full of fluid was his first symptom. We're told he will be treated Only when he has symptoms and that will be it - not sure what treatment yet though. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers from my good, good friends. We are thinking positively, although Mike has changed his plans from living to 102 till maybe 90-ish. (He always said he would live till 102 and be shot coming out of a womens bedroom window).
Love to all...Robin
