Two Small Finishes!

Yesterday after I slept half the day away, we decided it was about time to go see our new Great Nephew. Richard's niece gave birth 3 weeks ago and I felt terrible that we had not made it over to see him before now. His name is Braxton and he is such a cute little thing. He slept most of the time that we were there.
While we were there Hunter was outside playing with their dog that looks so miserable!!! She should be giving birth any day now. Look how huge she is!!! She loved playing with that rope with Hunter! On the way home, I was pooped! So we went through the drive-thru at Long John Silvers, took it home and had supper!!! After that I went back to bed!

This morning, I was a little bored so I made two little mini's! This first one only measures 9 inches. Actually this started out to be a small wallhanging and I planned on making 4 of these basket blocks but that was about a year ago and it still sat unfinished. So this morning, I attached a small border on it, quilted it on my regular machine and did the binding. Start to finish....less than an hour!

Another mini! This one measures 11 inches! This was an orphan block, I added the border, machine quilted it and did the binding. Another finish in under an hour!
I know they are very simple and the blocks were already done before hand but even though they are small finishes, it felt good to do something.
Richard is at class now and should be home around 4pm, so I think at that time we are going to try to take a short walk! :( We had planned on doing it this morning but I thought it was just too cold. I have got to get my legs better, this is driving me crazy!!!

What a sweet baby. Looks big for 3 weeks too.

OMG, that dog is ready to POP. I'll bet there is a puppy in your boys future. LOL!!

Cute little mini's. I love a quick finish.

Precious baby! That blond hair is sooo sweet!
Poor Doggie, I remember looking like that!
Your mini's are wonderful!! It is great to see you back sewing! Good Luck on your walk! I can only imagine how hard it is, just take one step at a time, one day at a time!! You can do it!

ditto to everything Libby said.
I tend to make potholders with my orphan blocks, then when I get a few made I think, shoot, I should have made an orphan top (I can't win)

Love the little minis and your great nephew is gorgeous.
Well done on keeping positive. As my FIL always says 'keep attacking kid'.

Good job on the mini's! They are cute and will be great for little table toppers! And they made you feel better about getting something done, right? Good, good, good!!

Precious little boy! Great name, too! And the poor dog!! lol
