Off the frame...

Here is the quilt that I got off the frame yesterday! It was a fairly large one measuring in at 96x96. This is an old top that I had pieced several years ago and I think I added the border sometime last year. The pattern is called Country Wife.I hung it up this morning in the house so that I could take a photo of the whole quilt. I have the binding ready to be sewn on. Since I was in a hurry to get this one off of the frame, I just did a fast and simple panto on it called "Happy Times" After I got the Country Wife quilt off of the frame, I loaded the baby YBR on the frame and started quilting on it this morning. I'm about half way through this one. I just had to take a break for a bit. My hips still ache and throb after I stand for a little while. Anyway, I'll have this one done later in the day. I also have the binding ready to be sewn on this on too. I had planned on starting the quilting on this YBR as soon as Hunter left for school. I was on my way out the door (to the new house where my frame is) and the phone rang. It was Andrew! I instantly thought "This is Thursday and he has late classes today so he sleeps late....something is wrong" You know me, I always worry and panic. So I answered the phone and I heard a very weak "m....o......m" He was sick. :( See that just goes to show that they will always need their mom. The way that he described it he either has a stomach bug or his acid reflux is acting up. Several years ago he had a big problem with acid reflux and did take medication for it but he stopped taking it. So I call every hour to check on him and told him that if he got worse to go to the doctor.

Yesterday evening we had a little rain shower and Hunter spotted this rainbow. He grabbed the camera and took this photo. He loves taking photos of everything lately.

That's all for now. I'm going to finish my break and then go finish quilting that YBR!

Kristie, that is a beautiful quilt! Doesn't it feel good to have it so near completion? And the YBR quilt looks great, too. Look at you go!
Hard to nurse a son long distance, isn't it?
Tell Hunter I love his rainbow photo. I can't resist photographing rainbows. Whenever I see one I grab my camera and go outside to try and get the best angle on it. Good job, Hunter!

"Off the frame" is a lovely phrase! It comes with such a feeling of accomplishment. Your Country Wife quilt is beautiful.

Kristie, I love that Country Wife quilt. So scrappy and beautiful. What color will the binding be? The YBR is cute too.
Hope your son is getting better. It is just no fun when our young uns are sick. No matter how old they are. :(
