Playing Catch Up

Because of one sick little boy I was unable to play with my red scraps during last Saturday's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. So tonight after bambino was put to bed I went down to my sewing room and took out the red strippy blocks and starting making the rows to the lap quilt.

By the time midnight came round I almost had all the rows sewn together. I started getting a bit tired, so decided to stop and will continue to work on it during the Friday Night Sew In. (err I'm into Friday now as it is 12:15am here.. so it will be 'tonight's sewing job lol)

This is all I really worked on today as this little cold I seemed to have been given by my sweet little boy has me with very little energy. I wouldn't call it a full fledge cold as it is just one really nasty sore throat, but it is the fact that I haven't the energy to get out of my own way!!! I spent much of the morning and afternoon in bed while Trevor watched Will. Hopefully I will have a good night sleep, and William will hopefully sleep through the night (knock on wood) and I feel a little better in the morning. I have to take Mum out to do a few errands.

Speaking of, Mum is doing well. She has to wear this big ugly boot for the next 6 weeks. She had the stitches taken out of her toe and foot last week and her surgeon said everything is healing well. She is starting to get a touch of cabin fever right now and just wants to get away from the four walls that are closing in around her. Its not that she is bored here at home. God knows between her sewing, quilting, cross stitching, reading and her love of playing in the kitchen she has PLENTY to do!!! But it is still good to just get out of your regular surroundings to see how the other people out there live!!!

Well its off to la la land for me again!

Quiltingly Yours
