I have not been on vacation and I have not abandoned ship. I have been taking care of some sickly babies!! For the past few weeks it has been tough. My youngest some how picked up the dreaded pink eye, an ear infection and some horrible wheezing in his chest. He had to take eye drops three times a day. Have you ever tried to give a three year old eye drops? It was like trying to put a dress on a wild boar! It took both my honey and I to hold him down and quickly drop them in. So he had to have that, antibiotics to clear up the ear infection and breathing treatments every day for ten days. It was not fun, oh did I forget to mention that both my husband and myself were delighted to find out that we both got pink eye as well!!! I have never had it and don't ever want it again. Some how my oldest didn't get it, praise the Lord! He did however get a little under the weather during all this. I hope I haven't put you to sleep with my excitement, but that has been my life for the past few weeks.
Now onto some fun things and boy do I have some fun things to share! I bought my plane ticket yesterday for the Sewing Summit!!!
I'm going with several of the ladies from our
Fort Worth Modern Quilt Guild. We are super excited!!
Also I'm sure you have heard about Quilt Con.
I'm so excited that it's going to be in Austin, TX. We can actually drive to this one! It's going to be awesome. It's next February so you have plenty of time to plan for it.
I was able to get a few of my Farmers blocks done yesterday.
This is Block #8 Bouquet
I need to get some better lighting. The dark triangles are a really pretty purple.
This is Block #9 Box
I thought, this one will be so easy blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Well, I couldn't get my points to match up and it ended up all wonky and misshapen. I must have somehow stretched the bias edges or something, I don't know. I wanted to show it anyways, but I will be redoing it tomorrow.
Next we have Block #10 Bowtie
And lastly we have #11 Broken Dishes
This one was a lot of fun to do!
I really love doing the Farmer's Wife Quilt and can't wait to do more. Sorry for such a long post and I hope you are all having a fabulous day!
