Sewing Progress...

Well my boy is pretty sore! This photo was taken yesterday and today it has a much "greener" look to it! Poor little thing he is "milking it for all it's worth" He had a doctor's appointment yesterday, just routine to get medication for his ears. He has eczema of the ear canal so I have to put medication in them every other day to keep them from drying out. Anyway....all checked out fine with his eye too. He did have a x-ray just to double check the cheekbone but it was fine. The doctor did put him on an antibiotic just for a precaution. Now he has decided that he wants lots of "mommy time" he wants to be loved on and taken special care of so I'm not going to turn him down on that, when he gets a little older he will not want me to do that so I will take advantage of that now! LOL! So he has camped out in the living room all day, lots of pillows, quilts and toys scattered everywhere. I actually moved my sewing machine in the living room too so that I can sew in between the snuggles. Before he got up out of bed this morning I did get to work on the antique quilt that is on my frame for a few minutes. I must say that changing the batting did make some difference but I am still having some thread issues but I think that is because of the different fabrics being used so I have to really go slow and it is not too bad that way.

I've got a lot of sewing done today but not any housework but that is okay. I have been working on my Civil War Wreaths UFO and it is coming right along. I have all 25 churn dash blocks finished but those are the easy blocks. Oh and I even recovered my ironing board! LOL! It looked horrid! I only have one of these star blocks pieced and this one is just laying there and is not sewn together. I need a total of 24 of those blocks. I have all of the strips sewn together for the 4 patches now I just need to sub cut them and sew them to make the 4 patches. And I only have just a few of the star points done. So hopefully I will have this top completed within a few days. I have really enjoyed working on this one and it also feels good to get another UFO out of the way. If you remember last week I completed the 30 blocks needed for my spiderweb quilt and that was a UFO too. But I still need to get the fabric to finish that one up but after I get the fabric it will not take too long to finish that one into a top. Not sure what I will work on next, as far as piecing goes. I have a couple of my quilt tops that I would love to machine quilt after I get these customer quilts finished but I also like to have something to piece going at the same time.

I guess that is all for now, Hunter is wanting me to watch another movie with him...

Oh dear.... so glad that your child is okay.... I'm sure that was a scary moment for you and him.

I am so glad he is ok. I love that age when they still want hugs and snuggle time. You just want them to stay that way.

Those are great blocks. I love finishing UFO's.

It hurts me to look at it so I know it must be hurting him. Love on him while you can because you are right - sooner than you think he won't want that cuddling

It is a kind of cute that he wants you to take good care of him while he gets better.
