Midget Block #1

Today has been a long and busy day. Last night I did not sleep very well, my hips and right leg ached and hurt about all night, but I guess that just goes along with it. My legs are getting better but nowhere near 100%....maybe soon.

Chantal was off from work today because of the holiday. She took mom to her doctor appointment this morning. They removed the staples, which mom said HURT, but they said everything looked good and for her still not to move it at all and all of this bad pain that she is having is normal for this type of surgery. She goes back to the doctor next Wednesday.

Tomorrow Chantal and I will be fixing Thanksgiving dinner at mom's house. I hope that mom is able to just sit back and enjoy the fact that she does not have to cook this year. Wish us luck!!!

This evening I started working on my Midget blocks! This is block #1, which is the Ohio Star. The block finishes at 4 1/2 inches so they are very small. I plan on doing these in Civil War fabrics, I just love that type of fabric so much. Jill is doing this quilt and there is a small group of us doing it together.
I guess that is all for tonight....Richard needs the computer for some homework!!!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful and Blessed Thanksgiving!!
