What do you call a day where someone needs stitches before 8:30am? You call that "normal" at MY house ;)
So, I am sitting in the living room, I have no recollection doing what, and I hear 2 boys screaming and crying and another boy yelling something. I know it is my boys making all the racket, but no clue as to the issue causing such a commotion! Before I can get out to see who is up to what they meet me wailing, I see the BLOOD! My 6 year old is crying because his head is cut, my 8 year old is crying because there is blood coming out of his brothers head and my 11 year old is shouting, trying to find out what is going on. Now, before you get too worried about my 6 year old's head, he is fine. Apparently, my boys decided to hang a brick from the top of the play-scape... brilliant, hugh? From what we can gather from traumatized little boys, it slipped out of its rope and knocked little brother on top of the head.
It was just a bit longer than a 1/2 inch long and quit bleeding pretty quickly.
Here it is all stitched up. Three Frankenstein stitches, just the way we like them.
Once we got back from all of that fun at the doctors office, yep, we got to cut in line at the doctors office... blood will do that for ya!... now what was I saying, oh yeah, what I did when I got home. Well, I basted the retro flower quilt....
Here is the quilt as it is being quilted. I was going to try some fancy designs, but it looked stupid so I went back to my old stipple standard.
Here is my quilted date.
Here is a sneak peak of the the finished, well, nearly finished quilt. The binding is sewn on :)
