100 days of stitching finished

I did the last four pieces of the SAQA 100 day challenge and then spent a long time arranging and rearranging the squares before finally sewing them together.

As of today my hubby is 3/4's of the way through his Chemo infusions, so far everything is going pretty much as planned and it looks like his surgery will be in early December. So far extreme fatigue has been the worst side effect, and I hope that's as bad as it gets. Thanks to all who have wished us well.

Some quick indigo

I've had a busy week, Don's daughters and their husbands were here so I stayed out of the studio for the most part only getting minimal stitching done. So yesterday I mixed up an indigo pot and today I spent a bit of time turning a few things blue.

A loose drapey top, a dress, a very large linen gauze scarf(it's folded in half on the line) and a smaller rayon scarf. There's a trip with my daughter and granddaughter in my future to somewhere warm and humid after we get through hubby's chemo and surgery. More about that as time goes by.

Avocado pit dyed piece almost done

Today hubby got to the halfway point in his chemo regimen and is napping to celebrate. Thank you to all of you that have sent well wishes, I really appreciate them all. His daughters are both coming to spend some time with him this weekend, an early birthday surprise. He knows that one is flying up from Phoenix because she told him and I have to go into Boise to pick her up at the airport. The other one is driving up from Reno. We should have a fun weekend.

I pulled out the piece that I had dyed with avocado pits and have the stitching almost complete, just one more spot that needs stitching, then trimming and finishing the edges.
