A Finish

Well I have been sewing most of the day. I have finished the baby boy quilt and sewn together my  blocks for the guild quilt. I have also sewn some on my arrowhead blocks. I hope tomorrow to finish up those blocks. I want to set them together. We have been sick here in the Hall household over the last couple weeks. I am almost back to normal. Mine was a head cold and hubby had a bout of the diverticulitis.
 Ouch for him! Had to take  to the ER and we wound up spending 9 hrs there. But he is worth it and much more. He has been on antibiotics for the last 9 days or so. I had to take some for a week . We are in for some freezing rain  and or snow tomorrow night while we sleep! Just got dug out from about 8 -9 inches yesterday! Snowy February here in Ohio wanted to share this finish with you. I made it for a friends  son. I know he is going to love it. Now to get myself busy on my new grand daughter coming very soon  My little Arsema Etshena means beautiful  not sure on the middle name Going to love her.  That is it for this time I am so very tired and need some major beauty sleep.

Happy Valentines Day

Hi and love to you all. Thanks for stopping by today. Was a busy week for me. Spent my afternoon at the Er yesterday with hubby. He is suffereing with diverticultius it seems. I know he was hurting pretty good.. They did a barrage of tests and blood work and a cat scan . So he has drugs and will change his eating habits now I do believe.
 I had a class on Saturday  making a block called Arrowhead. It was in the Quiltmaker mag from the Sept./Oct issue. The block and her technique are so much fun and very easy!! I love the fabric I have chosen for my  quilt. That in itself helps to enjoy the class and making of the quilt. It is line from a year or so ago called Avairy by Three Sisters from Moda. Very soft and peaceful colors. Here is the fabirc before cutting them I chose a beige or creamy background
I want to get back to sewing on it. I think I will love this one.  Anyway I am very pleased with it.
I will try to get backand post more often than as of late. Happy in Love Day to you all!!!
