Monday & Tuesday: My BFF and quilting buddy's husband suffered a heart attack on Monday morning. I was out in the garden at the time and heard ambulances and knew they were close but didn't realize they were at her house around the corner down the street. He is doing well and has been released from hospital yesterday already. The timing of everything made the procedures and care first rate. So needless to say I was busy helping her get to and from the hospital, making etc meals, doing extra laundry, cleaning up two kitchens etc. They have done so much for us over the years I didn't have a problem helping them out at all.
Wednesday: was our 20th anniversary. My husband came home from work with beautiful yellow and pink roses. I also received a very beautiful pair of diamond earrings…..yahoo! they are gorgeous! We spent the evening at our son's soccer game!!! Maybe this weekend we can go out to celebrate.
Thursday: I worked, rushed home to get daughter #2 and then rushed to the university (MRU) to watch both daughters performing in their competition show case for family and friends. What an evening. We always enjoy watching them on stage. Glad we were inside as outside it was SNOWING. Yep you read right snowing in May, unbelievable!
Friday: I was supposed to be joining daughter #2 class on an all day outdoor field trip to a conservation area. I bailed. Just couldn't see myself being outside in the rain/snow with no shelter, bathrooms etc for 5 hrs. I am just getting over a cold and didn't want to go downhill again. So instead she slept in, I have baked banana bread and a few other chores. I really hope I can get to sewing today too.
I have been working on these pinwheel squares for a few weeks now. Just not sure how to put them all together, with or without sashing? It all started by making a sample block who was having trouble getting her points to line up. I offered to make one to see if I had the same problems. Turns out I didn't and she just needs to be a bit more accurate in cutting.
I have started my son's quilt..more on that later.
