Feeling Under The Weather :(

This morning was our Quilt Guild meeting! Lots of fun and beautiful quilts to look at! I really enjoy going and seeing what everyone else is making. Lots of inspiration!!

Today we were making a Roman Stripe quilt! Very nice pattern but I decided not to do this one right now because....my SIL was at the hospital having her labor induced!! Yep, as of a little before 2pm, I have a new nephew!!!! I had planned on going down to the hospital but about 15 minutes before I left the guild meeting, I started feeling really crappy!!! Aches and chills all over! So I decided to go home first because she had not had him yet. I ended up sleeping until the boys got home from school. Didn't figure I should go to the hospital and get the baby sick. Mom says that he is very beautiful! They named him Gabe Michael and he weighed 8lb, 4oz. I can't wait to see him!!!!

Right now I feel like crap! Andrew is also sick, he has been vomiting! Richard and Hunter are staying away from us!!! :) I sure hope they do not get sick! I even got out of fixing dinner! I always fix a fairly big meal, but this evening, I got away with opening up a few cans of Beef Stew! :)

No sewing for me today, but here is another block that I made for my Civil War Diary quilt the other day. This one is called "A Glorious Rainbow" and has 59 pieces! Not a hard block but just time consuming!!


The boys don't have school tomorrow because of Election Day! Hopefully, Andrew is feeling better and can enjoy his time off from school, if not, I will take him to the doctor. I can handle myself being sick, but not my kids!

Hopefully, I will have a few more photos to show in the next few days!

That block is so cool. I hope that you and Andrew start to feel better real soon. Stay warm, drink lots of fluids and get plenty of rest.

Hopefully you are feeling better now...and Andrew too.

Being sick is not any fun...so we hope the time of feeling this way is short.

Congratulations on the new baby joining your family. He will be loved a lot.
