I didn't intend to be gone so long. Greg and I had to make an unplanned trip to Las Vegas where his mother, who was on vacation, was admitted to the hospital in septic shock. She spent a week in ICU and was transferred to another hospital while we were on our way home a week later. She's had some setbacks since we've been home and as of today, has spent two weeks in the hospital. It was an exhausting week - too many nights with not enough sleep and a couple without any. We did spend 30 minutes at the Hoover dam and spent one day with our niece and nephew. At this point, we're not sure when she will be able to fly back home. We're taking it day by day.
Not much sewing has been going on but I did manage to get my Cotton Club blocks completed in time for our upcoming meeting next weekend. This blocks are little - 5 1/2" - but they take loads of time it seems. Not quick and easy for sure. At least not for me!
My Wee Bee Learning Bee block is due out soon so I worked on that today too. It's supposed to be an improv block. Improve to me means unplanned. I think I'm more of a planned improv kind of quilter. The guidelines were very specific and detailed. I worked diligently to meet those requirements. It needs a good pressing. It's untrimmed - I'll let my Bee mate do that.
Stitching has been minimal. I did drag a big bag of it everywhere we went in Vegas including all 5 airports we were in. Greg helped me carry it. I only had energy for a few stitches and by the time we got home, I'd wished I'd never taken it. I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things this week.
The new Blogger is giving me fits. My page froze and it's taken me 15 minutes to get it worked out and only when I was willing to ditch the whole post. Please tell me it gets easier!
I've visited all the blogs but left much fewer comments than normal. All of you continue to inspire me every day and I sure enjoy your blogs and your visits here. Thank you and may all your stitches be happy ones!
