Bulloch Hall Quilt Show

I want to give my heartfelt thanks to all who left comments on the last two posts and to everybody who has been helping me in so many ways since I got the diagnosis / surgery / chemotherapy.  I didn't answer everybody who commented; the chemotherapy and showing up for work is about all I can keep up with at the moment, so I hope you all understand and know that I loved hearing from all of you.  The nausea pills do a pretty good job, but between the bizarre side effects, threatening nausea and exhaustion, well, it is an altered reality.

I have no idea how many chemotherapy cycles I will have to do, or radiation, but radiofrequency ablations have also been added to the mix.

Going to the Bulloch Hall Quilt Show is the first activity I've done this year lol!  A hearty thank you to Muriel, Kathie, and Kathy for this treat.  Oh, also we ate at The Salt Factory in Roswell beforehand; the food is delicious.  Quilts and antiques that caught my eye at the show follow.  Bulloch Hall is the 1839 childhood home of Theodore Roosevelt's mother.










wonderful!



this old one is my favorite in the show:

Lovely setting for a quilt show. So happy you were up to going out and enjoying it.

Good to see your post. Of course, we all understand that you have far more important things to tend to than blogger emails . . . . that does not stop all the good thoughts coming your way every day *s*
Love seeing the photos from the quilt show, particularly the stairs and floor - validation that I am NOT a kook for doing the very same ;-)

What a wonderful location for a quilt show display. A different way of showing them but oh so interesting.

I am surprised that you are able to work with all that is going on with your treatments. Does not sound like fun but a necessary thing. Keep a positive attitude.

Meredith said...

What a neat place to have a quilt show - and what wonderful quilts! I love that brown one quilted with swirls also.

Nann said...

What a wonderful setting for all the quilts! I noted a number of quilts made from Bonnie's Quiltville designs....including the Prickly Pear blocks from Roll Roll Cotton Boll (with one VERY mispieced block). Hope your energy keeps up!

Melinda said...

Thanks for posting a photo of my little house quilt. I went to the show on Monday and had a great time looking at all the wonderful quilts.

Taryn said...

Those are some interesting quilts in that beautiful house. I am amazed you are able to get yourself to work. My prayers are with you that you stay strong and get well soon.

As a co-rectal cancer survivor of 25 years, I can appreciate what you are going through. Hang in there!
Thank you for posting the quilts pictured here, especially the prickly pear in double pinks that may have inspired Bonnie K. Hunter's "Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll"?

Gretchen said...

I'm so glad you got out to do something fun with friends. Sending love & healing wishes your way.
