A tad of sewing

I am doing the Sew Along with Lori Holt and the  day before the sew along she gave directions for us to make a pin cushion using a block from her new book Farm Girl Vintage. I have been pretty sick all week and really wanted to sew but had to do this in a few minutes at a time. Been to nauseated to move around very long. I like it and it is finished. Maybe tomorrow i can sit long enough to make the first two blocks. I also bought her fat quarter bundle to make the blocks in the book. She has used a polka dot for background different colors but I think I will use Kona Snow or  Bella White. I spent 3/4 of the month of April in Washington visiting my son  and seeing my grand daughters. they are so fun. They are thinking of moving back to the Ohio area but he would rather go to AZ it is much warmer year around there. He told the Honey they could come here for a year at least a winter and then she may change her mind due to how long and cold most of the winters are.
 I took some photos and videos of the girls jumping and playing and singing.. Gosh they have grown so fast. below is a photo of my pincushion. sure came out nice.
I will upload the pics and videos from phone and then post them in a day or so  so come on back and take a look them. thanks everyone.

Sorry to hear your are ill (not the fun kind either) and pray for a speedy recovery. Your little pincushion is cute. I have Lori's book, but not quilting along with the group.
