Repurposed Pillow

There are these two pillows on my couch that well, are not so loved. The numbers, the letters, idk. Thankfully I know my way around a sewing machine and happen to have a full box of fabric and scraps hanging around.

The humble (ugly) pillow became the focus of my renewed attention to quilting and will soon be joined by another.

I used my new iOS favorite app Quiltograhy to design the block and after a few choice words got the hang of piecing a complex design.

Armed with a seam ripper I set out to release the component of the existing pillow, realigned the binding and zipper and walah! New seaonsal throw pillow.

I'm Gonna Be a DOCTOR!

The light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter, and while I'm still convinced its a train....at least I can see it!!

And its official! All the hard work thus far is paying off and I will be embarking on the next leg of my grand adventure: Residency.

June 23rd I begin training at Henry Ford Hospital in Macomb, MI in General Surgery!

Thank you everyone for your support, patients and love. I wish my grandmother was here with me, but I know that somehow she knows and is proud of me (even if I haven't won the Nobel Prize yet).
