Another Quilt Top!

It has been a busy past couple of days! As I posted yesterday we have a new foal! She is just sooooo cute! She has been running and playing! Still very clumsy on those long legs but she is doing great! Here is a photo that I took of her a few minutes ago!
Yesterday morning when Richard got up for work he was urinating blood. I insisted that he go to the doctor. He had to drop his coal truck off to have some work done on it so I picked him up yesterday evening. Took him to Urgent Care, they did a urine test and said "no infection but positive for blood" Well, duh! Said that he probably had a kidney stone and sent him straight to the ER. Now our little local hospital is a JOKE, but I was lucky to get him to go anywhere. After sitting there for several hours they came in and said..." No infection but we will put you on an antibiotic anyway. They also said that no tumors or kidney stones turned up on the CT Scan. Told him they didn't have a clue where the blood was coming from but go home and if it does stop soon to come back! Now can you believe that? You don't bleed for no reason!! He is not having any pain or anything but like I said you don't bleed for no reason!

Anyway, I had to go to the grocery store and stuff today because I was just too busy yesterday. When I got back Richard decided to plow the garden! He got ours plowed and mom's too! He will disk it up tonight or tomorrow. Can't wait to start planting some vegetables! If you look closely in the background you can see the roof of the house!

This is what I did Thursday! My ex-husband's niece is having a baby in June, and her shower is in April so I jumped in and made a quick baby quilt. (Giggle, his family still like me and THEY are good people) I still need to do the quilting on it but at least the top and binding are done.

I'm off to finish the Spaghetti for dinner! Hope to do something quilty later tonight!

Kristie, the quilt turned out great...loved the pattern with the colors...just perfect combination.

The colt is darling with those long gangly legs.

Will pray for Richard's health issue...does not sound good to me either.

Take care - hugs from here.

Oh goodness... how scary for your hubby... Hopefully he already passed the stone and the bleeding will stop. Keep on him though to follow up if it doesn't get better.

Gosh Kristie, things are sure busy at your house! I hope Richard will be okay, that is quite a worry. Your foal is just adorable, such a sweet little face.
Hope things quieten down a little for you soon.

Saphira is so cute! I hope the bleeding stops and Richard don't have to go back. The quilt is pretty with all those bright colors.

The quilt is gorgeous! Life on top of the world sure is interesting, isn't it?

I hope Richard gets well soon. How scary that must be!

Your colt is beautiful,and it just amazes me how quickly they just get up and go! Aren't you glad babies don't do that?!!!

Take care, and be blessed!

Thanx for the picture of the new baby and I sooo love the border fabric you used on the baby quilt.

What a lucky baby.

That is scary about Richard. The same thing happened to my mom once and the Dr's never knew the cause, they just put her on antibiotics and it stopped.

Your baby quilt top is so cute, they are going to love it!

LOVE the new baby!!! Speaking of babies, are there any signs of puppies soon?

Cindy said...

OMG!!! I haven't been checking blogs at all! Your grand baby is sooooo cute!!! Congrats for sure! Sorry to hear about your hubby. Can't believe they send him home bleeding and yet he still plows the fields :) amazing! Beautiful star quilt, too!!! Love the colors!

Here's hoping everyone in your family gets well soon as you have had your share of illness lately.

That quilt will be prefect for a new baby. I love star patterns.

That garden is going to be wonderful. There's nothing like fresh veggies from your own garden....and the bonus is the savings on the grocery bill! I don't have space for a nice big garden, but I sure wish I did.

And I can't wait till I can get my garden planted!
