I know it has been quite a long time since I have posted anything.
I have been being kept quite busy with Avery!
On top of that I contracted Covid.
My daughter and son-in-law got it and shared the love with me.
Luckily we all had pretty mild cases of it and the only thing I have left over now is that I can't smell anything and some congestion that is causing me to cough.
We treated the baby as if he was negative so I have been wearing a mask around him.
I stayed home from babysitting for the first 4 days of my symptoms
(they had it a week before I did).
I'm on day 11 today and except for the pesky cough I feel good.
While I was self isolating in the camper I did a little sewing.
This will be the third quilt top I have done since January 1.
The other 2 were mailed back home to my long arm quilter.
She has quilted them both and dropped them off at my home,
so now I just need to trim them and bind them.
I have binding made for the Neverland one but not the dog one, yet.
I hope to make the binding for that this weekend.
The third quilt is one I can't show the whole of (one part in particular) or
the person it is for will know it is for them!
It's really a Christmas sort of quilt, maybe could be winter too,
so I most likely won't even gift it until next Christmas!
Cole is always helping me when I have sewing to do, LOL.
There are two sets of trees.
One is light and one is dark.
I used an ombre fabric so they are multi colored, just like real trees!
The other blocks are snowflakes.
I really love these blocks!
The centers are sparkly just like real snowflakes.
I now have the whole top put together.
There is one more BIG block
(that's the one I can't show)
I need to put the borders on tomorrow.
Trying to decide if I want to make it bigger.
If I end up making it larger I will do a thin green border (tree fabric)
and a bigger white border.
I want to bind it in the green tree fabric too.
The boys have been good company during my month in NC by myself.
I love that Cole climbed into my lap and laid down like this.
We go in to the vet tomorrow for his 6 week blood work.
Praying his blood work comes out well. He seems like his old self.
Just 6 more weeks after this for a total cure so keep your fingers crossed!
I think Finny has been missing Chris.
He really is my husband's pal but I am trying to make sure he gets his share of Finny lovin' too.
These two really love each other and I am so thankful for their company at night.
So there you have it.
This is what I have been up to.
What's new with all of you my friends?
