W.I.P. Update

 

So many projects, not enough hours in the day!  🙂 

Here are some pics of what I’m working on:

There’s the “Rest Time Roll-up” mentioned in an earlier post, four more rows and it’ll be ready for borders…..

……the “Pheasant Quilt”, also from an earlier post, taking an extended break from this one…..

…….a bargello crib quilt (also, previously mentioned)….trying to think of the perfect words to applique in the brown rows…..

…..the newest addition to the W.I.P.’s, a hand-painted  “quilted” gourd birdhouse, just needs a few coats of glossy paint and it’ll be done…..

…….and another ‘quilted’ gourd in a much less finished stage, needs alot yet….

……..and, of course, there is the never-ending job of laundry, cleaning, cooking….you get my drift. 🙂

 I am waiting for a sunny day to take some pics outside of my quilt-top stash to post on my portfolio (coming soon).  Hopefully, tomorrow…….

Until then…

Be Creative!

Quilting Interrupted….

Well.  We made it ten years.  Ten years of boyhood before the first trip to the emergency room.  Last night, my 10 year old son, Alex, suffered a dog bite to his bottom lip.  Is there anything worse, Mom’s, than to see your child hurting?  I doubt it. 

I wasn’t outside last night when the bite occured but it sounds like my son tried to give a neighborhood dog a hug.  Not a good idea.  He didn’t know that some dogs don’t like hugs.  Our dog loves them!   He was bit and we were off to the ER.  Three hours and 8 stitches later, we were back home and off to bed.  What a brave little boy he was!  Today, he’s a little worried about getting his stitches taken out because then he’ll lose his “coolness”.  I assured him he would still be very cool. 

Here’s a pic of the damage, if you can handle it.

I’m so just so thankful that he’s okay.
