Wall Art

This hangs on the wall at the hospital. I see a quilt here.

Mike is very much improved today. His white cell count is "stable" and so it seems the infection is finally clearing. He will be in the hospital at least through the weekend. Hopefully home after that. Fingers crossed.

I can certainly see one of your appliqué quilts in that wall hanging. It's lovely to hear that the antibiotics have kicked in and are doing their job and Mike is improving. Hopefully he wont have too much longer in hospital.

I see a quilt there, too. I saw many such pieces of art in hospital halls that I thought would make nice quilts. I have my fingers and toes crossed!

Karen said...

Great to hear positive news.
Yes, definitely a quilt in those pictures!

Shanna said...

I am very glad to hear that the positive news, but Still I will be praying.

I wanted to link you a little Quilt Porn to inspire you: http://park19.wakwak.com/~noriko/

She uses a very interesting technique to make landscaped quilts using scraps and shredded bits of fabric!

Such good news, to hear that Mike's counts are settling down. I'll bet he is exhausted, and he's probably not the only one. Gracie is probably a bit worn out from the stress of having him away from home. Still--good news is a fine way to start a new month. Warm thoughts coming your way. xxx Beth

Margaret said...

If anyone could make a quilt look like that it would be you. Glad to hear Mike is on the mend.

Dana Gaffney said...

Oh that's good news. Will continue to say prayers for a thorough recovery. Stay well yourself and I agree about the quilts made from those pictures, it's always amazing where inspiration comes from. lol Jane

Heidi said...

So glad Mike is improving! I have been following via phone, which I do not use to comment. My thoughts and prayers are with you both:-)

Judy1522 said...

That is good news! I am sure he will be happy to be coming home also.

Awesome - Glad he's doing better. Will he still have operation or wait for later date?
Yes I can see a quilt there too. But it seems I can find one anywhere anymore. :)
Blessings!

That would make a lovely quilt! I am so glad that Mike is improving... I hope he comes home sooner than later *hugs*

So glad that Mike's white count has stabilized. The hospital wall art reminds me of your white trees.

Great News!! Hope he gains strength now. Our Son Kev goes home Tomorrow..wbc in his effluent is 36...down from over 900!!...yes, infection free is the way to be!!

kc said...

Let's hear it for improvements, no matter how few or how small! Trees definitely look like a quilt-to-be. My next sewing project is a little more umm...challenging? I took possession today of 2 snake skins...that need to be trimmed & sewn to a fabric-covered piece of stabilizer, quilted in necessary. One's a diamondback rattler and I'm really not sure what the other one is. Something brown with triangular markings...that reminded me of a quilt. What's wrong with us, anyway, that we see quilts everywhere. Last night, I held up a piece of Romaine lettuce, with a gorgeous gradient from lemon-yellow to darkest of green...and asked hubby, "wouldn't this make the prettiest fabric?" crazy.

Fingers crossed, my quilty-bloggy friend, I'm hopeful for healing and coming home. Both of which cannot be thought highly enough of these days.

Dar said...

Good news about Mike. Glad to hear he is improving and will soon be home. Yes, that does lend itself to becoming a quilt. One that you could do with ease.

Lynne said...

Love that art work!
