I was productive yesterday. I got the chenille blanket sewn, cut and squared up. Now I just need to get it bound and labeled! PTM here I come! I need to sew the binding tonight. Here is a peek at it before I cut it.
Remember when I asked for your prayers for a friend that was struggling? Well some of the issues have resolved and I can tell you that her daughter has a new son. He was premature and was born with a congenital heart defect. They did surgery and installed a pacemaker and he was supposed to have been able to go home on Friday, as least for a trial to see how it goes. I haven't heard anymore yet but will update you as I hear more. There was an Rh incompatibility too so the mom had to take Rogam (not sure of the spelling). They did learn that when a baby has the particular defect this one does that the mother has one of 2 auto immune diseases, either Rhumatoid Arthritis or Lupus. That was not good news either. They are focusing on getting the baby home and settled and then will see what they need to do to take care of his mama. Please keep them in your prayers!
Oh I bet you want to know why I posted all that right? Because the chenille blanket is for the new baby, of course!
I am going to meet up with Pat today from Bell Creek Quilts. She is in Michigan visiting her mom and that is so close to me! We will meet at JAF and then go to Hobby Lobby and maybe IKEA too. Then we will have some dinner! I am so excited!!! I will bring my camera and take some pictures to show you too.
