CC7

I have half of my Carolina Crossroads quilt put together. I'd have finished it all, but I spent too much time on the phone talking to my kids -- but the quilting can wait!

Steve will start radiation and chemo on the 28th of January. He was officially accepted into the clinical trial studies also. And spent some time talking with the doctors in Madison gaining knowledge on side effects and what to expect. And also got the cat scan and fitting and marking for the radiation treatments. Ready to get started -- but hopefully he and Kim are out to dinner tonight to celebrate his birthday.

I'm babysitting the grands tomorrow, so maybe Sunday afternoon I'll have time to finish putting this top together!

I just love the color scheme that you put together for this quilt.

I hope all goes well with Steve. I read his blog the other day and it was all that I could do not to cry. He seems like a very strong and determined man. His wife sounds like a wonderful woman and I'm sure this is very hard on her too.

Your quilt is beautiful. Every time that I see your quilt it makes me sick that I didn't start one of my own. But you can bet in April, I will be quilting right along with you. Enjoy your time with your grandkids.

You have the opposite colors that I do and I like yours, too. Your red stars really pop. Great quilt!

What a lovely quilt - like a walk through the woods with all those deep greens. I'm sending support and prayers for your Steve - and I'm sure that a lot more of the quilting-blogging community is, too. Bless you all.

What a great sense of contrast in the quilt! It's fantastic. I hope all goes well with the treatements for Steve.
