Rest Time Roll-up Continued…..

Progress!  What a lovely word!  The Rest Time Roll-up is coming along splendidly.  Here’s what I’ve worked on:

I cut my pieces the other day so today I began sewing them together to make triangles for pinwheels. 

 I then sewed them together to make my pinwheels. 

Then it was back to the real life of “mommyhood”….stay tuned.

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.
