My Wild Weekend

What a crazy weekend we had at my house this past weekend!  
On Saturday night my husband got a bad nose bleed and it would not stop. 
 I won't go into gross detail but we ended up at urgent care on Sunday
 followed by the ER on Monday.  
I think we finally got things under control but there will be a trip to the ENT tomorrow. 
 He is not on blood thinners nor is his BP high, so not sure what the deal is, but it seems like we have finally stopped the bleeding, for now.

I did manage to get a few things done over the weekend and some of the Splendid Sampler blocks were on my "to do" list.  
Here are my blocks that I have not shown so far.

Changed the bear into a cat (of course)


Back stitched and left off the crochet hook


Wow, this was a lot of little pieces


Loved this star


This block was seagulls.  I just did not want to put seagulls in my quilt so I drew these birds.

I think I will make a pattern up with them, what do you think?


These bunnies were a bonus block and I love how they turned out!


I was pretty happy with this one also.


I am still 2 blocks behind, but I hope to catch up this week. 
 It is challenging to make 2 blocks per week.  
It doesn't sound like much but you can get behind rather quickly.
  I also have my 2 bee blocks to make and various and sundry shower gifts to begin on.

I had a new great niece born on Saturday and have a chenille blanket and a quilt ready for her.  Another great niece/nephew due in May.
  I have that baby's chenille blanket finished and the quilt is ready for me to quilt.

I have to get cracking on the wedding shower gifts.  
I ordered the most hilarious fabric to make oven mitts with today.  
Hoping it comes soon!
  It seems the colors for the kitchen are black and white 
  I am going to try to embroider some dish towels and then use glass paint to paint the bottom of a Pyrex casserole dish with their last name on it. 
 Those will be the shower gifts.  Their quilt goes to the quilter tomorrow.

Baby shower at the end of the month, I have the chenille blanket finished.  
I started a quilt for them this weekend.  It is a girl so that makes it easier to choose a pattern.  

What are you working on?

I'm with KaHolly, exhausted just reading. I have given up on my The Splendid Sampler blocks. Think I bit too much. Hope hubby is doing much better.

Love your blocks. Hope hubby feels better, and you figure out what is going on. Sounds like you are going to continue to be busy for the rest of the month.
