My mom and I were so frazzled we had to DO something. So Mom taught me how to make a quilt from a paper piece pattern. I'm not a quilter, so this was a challenge! In fact, in the list of required fabrics, notions, etc, on the back of the pattern, right there on the list was
"Seam Ripper (sorry!)"so even the designer knew that this thing would be a special learning opportunity :-).
The good thing is that it kept us both busy and occupied while waiting for the doctors to tell us the next step.
Thanks for the lessons, Mom!!
