Spelling Bee Book by Lori Holt

Hello! I hope your weekend is off to a great start. The weather is beautiful here today and I can finally sit down for a little blog post.

I fell down our front steps 2 weekends ago. Only now is the soreness going away. A few days of bed rest really helped but I was moving around like a turtle for a bit there. The baby is fine, thank God! My hip, back and arm took the brunt of the fall. Oh , and my cute, newly painted big toe nail got ripped off. But I'm on the mend. My husband has since put singles down on the stairs to make them safer. It was raining when I fell. Plus I was wearing Croc flip flops with NO traction.

Thank you all for the great tips, ideas, and suggestions on basting a big quilt!!! Obviously I have not gotten around to trying any of them yet and I apologize for not replying to you. I loved reading all of them and I think I will try using a table. I used to use this method years ago but I got puckers. Maybe I'll be a more patient baster now that I am older :)

I worked on a paper pieced block for the cocorico bee. I need to rework it. Leila's theme is woman's work. Inspired by ads from the 50's and 60's. I made an aqua fridge. It needs help. But I have all the tweaks planned and it should be fine. I really didn't want to show it here, but then I thought, what is the point of not showing the bad along with the good?! I love when things work out but that's not always the case so I thought I'd show you that!!!

I pulled some fabric for a few baby bibs and that is about as far I got.

I'm going to embroider this little deer onto a bib made with these prints. If the baby isn't a girl then I'll give it away to someone who has a little girl.

I have this party on my mind. I am giving a hand piecing and quilting demonstration. I'll be taking my hand pieced quilt that only have 2 blocks quilted so far and this Churn Dash quilt.I'm a little nervous. Not about the demonstration but about whether or not my Buffalo Chicken Dip will be well received. ha! Just kidding. I'm nervous about the demonstration. Wish me luck!

OMG, hope you're feeling totally better soon (and stop going out in the rain in your crocs ;o) )

I'm glad the baby is okay!

Oh dear. Glad that you and the baby are okay. I did something very similar last summer, also on wet steps and also wearing Crocs! It happened so fast, I didn't have time to react at all. I thought I broke my elbow actually, but turned out to just be bruised and very sore for quite a while. Take care of yourself!

Glad you and baby are fine. Your little fridge will be perfect. I lost my toenail too this summer! Couldn't see over all the cucumbers I was carrying and stubbed it but GOOD ; )

Best wishes and have fun demonstrating...you will be fine. Glad everything is okay after your fall. The bibs will be adorable!!!! I will write you an email once I get a computer again...which should be soon. xo

Erin, I'm so glad that you and the baby are okay! The fabrics and projects you're planning look wonderful, and I hope your demo is a big success. Take it easy and enjoy yourself!

Compared to that scary fall ( glad you and baby are o.k.) the demonstration should be a piece of cake!! Once you get started you probably won't be able to stop talking as that is usually what happens when we talk about something we love. Take care and hope you get to make some bibs...that is a cute fabric stack!!

Becca said...

Oh goodness take care of yourself girlie! :) Glad to hear you are doing ok.

Beautiful projects!

Buena Suerte!

Oh my goodness! I'm so sorry to hear about your fall. I'm glad you are on the mend and that the baby is doing fine. What a scare! Sweet blessings to you. All your fabric choices are so lovely!

Glad to hear that all is okay with you and the baby. Take it easy. :)
