Baby quilts are done

So sorry that I haven't posted sooner, but life just gets in the way sometimes..  Hubby is back from Ohio safe and sound.  But he did bring home a nasty cold, he has been fighting it all week. He has a fever, watery eye, cough, sore throat, the whole works.  I have been running for meds for him and making tons of hot tea to soothe his throat, which helps a little.  With his immune system being so weak I know it will take awhile for him to get over this cold.  Then it hit ME, I had been doing so good, not a cold all season and when he got one I steered clear. But not this time, he managed to share the cold with me.  So I am in the same boat as he with the sore throat, coughing and the whole works.  I hate being sick... At least I managed to get most of the yard work done last week.

 Baby Quilts

Last weekend, I met up with Peggy, the co owner of the stitching group I belong to. I delivered the three baby quilts that I had finished and this week two were delivered to Ronald McDonald House and the third one along with a baby quilt from another member went to the abused women and children's shelter. I still have 9 quilts for the nursing home to finish and when I feel a little better I will get those finished and out of here so I can start on the new batch. Plus I now have some great patterns for making soft dolls and animals out of felt.  My friend Dona has been making these type things along with puppets and capes for the children's hospital... Her sewing miles of smiles encourages people to sew and donate to their local hospital. So add another project to my list..

On a happy note, last week the last of the puppies left here for their new forever home.. Both puppies have wonderful new families and I know they will be taken care of and so loved... They are two lucky pups.

Well folks, that is about all for now, I think a hot bath, a cup of tea and a warm bed are in my future for today.
