Silence Broken

Greetings from the House of Strep and Ear Infections. It's not the best place to visit - lots of coughing, whining and just down right crankiness.

Let me just say I can't wait for spring. To be able to open up the house and air the place will be wonderful. I was home for 3 days and didn't even make it near a sewing machine. Today Grace went to the Minute Clinic for an assessment. Hopefully she will start feeling better by tomorrow.

I did make it to the girl cave last night and got a baby quilt quilted. I had a glass of wine before I started, which amazingly enough, helped me to loosen up. I did things that I wouldn't normally do. Not perfect by any means, but it looks good and it was fun. That's all the matters.

Buddy had to help while I was trying to take pictures. He thought he would make the quilt look nicer.
I love the cats. Completely 70's.
I found the pattern in one of the many magazines I buy. For the life of me now, I can't remember which one. The idea was to take a busy panel, add borders, and WA-LA you have a baby quilt.

I've been working with the embroidery machine too. I made a bunch of book marks. I still need to remove the stabilizer. I'm working on a project now, but will wait to share my pictures until I'm done.

I'm hoping to do a bit more quilting today, but who knows. A nap is definitely in order. I hear snoring from the living room, so I think someone has definitely beat me to the couch. The bed will work too.

Oh, I must share a sneak peek of Buddy's pictures. Brandi asked if she could take pictures of him. I hesitated because I'm bad about making fun of people that get pictures taken of their animals. I know, I shouldn't because it will come back to bite me, like now. I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures.

Have a great day!

That is a fun baby quilt -- sometimes it's nice to let the fabric do the work, and that's such cute fabric!
