My Progress...

I have to admit to being very slack with my SKofW and I have fallen way behind! After giving my sewing room a big tidy up, and after visiting this blog, I felt the urge to get back to it again!

So here's my effort after this weekend (I did work Saturday morning) but I do feel quite pleased with what I have accomplished.
One thing I have come to realize is that when life throws you a few hardships, sewing is the best medicine!! My 15 year old son is due to have surgery next week to remove a benine bone Tumour on his arm, so the smaller blocks I will be packing for hospital and hope??? to get some stitched!

I hope all the Mums out there have had a lovely Mothers Day! I have been totally spoilt by my 3 kids and of course hubby!

Bye For Now

That's what I like about these quilts, once the prep is done, you can take them anywhere and work on them while you sit.
Hope all goes well with your son.
