Tennessee Trip

I love this photo, it is finally spring, and almost Easter!

I have been down to Tennessee to help my son who was in an accident at work.  His arm was caught in a conveyor belt and he was in the hospital for 10 days.  He needed help when he got home so Mom to the rescue.  His arm was ripped up pretty bad and broke in 4 places.  He has started therapy now and they do expect him to regain full use of his arm.  Thank God for that.  I was there for 2 weeks after he got home to help him with things.  He is doing better now and they are teaching  him how to change his own dressings.

Next week I will be off to California to see my Grandson for his 5th birthday.  I haven't seen him in about 2 years so I can't wait. Kyle is a real cutie.

As for my quilting I finished this wall hanging for my granddaughter before I left

I won a give away from Barb at Wont To Be Quilter .  She loves to do give aways from time to time and I was lucky to win this one.  More cat fabric! lol  Thanks again Barb.

Speaking of cats, here is another peek of some squares I am working on for my cat quilt with the material I won here from Pug Mom Quilts.  Notice the arrow, it points to my kitty's paw!  She must like that cat.

So now that I am home, I have started cleaning up the yard a little as weather permits.  Had to go grocery shopping and hubby tagged along and we went out for Chinese lunch.  So yummy.  Tomorrow I will be going to my friend Marilyn's home for a little sewing get together.  I missed seeing my quilting friends while I was gone.

Hope you are all getting some nice spring weather and working on some fun spring projects.

Still cold outside and still sewing inside

Still in the single digits to low 20's.  Did not get the rain and ice so many are dealing with and I am happy about that.

Project Update

Another row added to the butterfly quilt.

I made 2 big cat faces that I am making into wall hangings,

 and I have finished the Pat Sloan March Block

Remember the Hancock Cracker Pack I won?  40 - 10" squares? Well I have figured out what I am going to do with them.

Will update you on this project later.

On the down side, my son in TN was in an accident at work.  His arm was caught in conveyor belt and he has been in the hospital since last Saturday.  Having his 3rd surgery today.  Arm broke in 4 places, and they are trying to save his skin.  Hoping he can go home by next Monday and I will be going there to help him out at home.
I will post here as I can.  Thank you for any prayers for his healing.

Hope all of you and your families are well.  Keep on quiltin'.
