Little Progress...

Little progress has been made with my mom after her
car accident last week.
My mom is having a lot of pain,
probably from bone bruising,
since nothing is broken.
The pain is a bit less,
but not where she would like it to be.
We are all impatient at times like this,
aren't we?

Since I have been with her so much,
(and took a quick trip to California to see my daughter and son-in-law)
(thank God for siblings who are ready and willing to help!) 
little has been done in my Hidey Hole.

I did get a quilt back from my LAQ today

This one has been waiting patiently to be quilted.


I saw this quilting design on line and love it on this quilt.
It gives it just enough pizazz, but doens't take away from the quilt.


The backing is just plain turquoise fabric.
Love it.
Now I need to make the binding and get it sewn on and finished.

In the few minutes that I've had to sit and sew,
I'm working on my Temperature Quilt blocks.
I am so far behind with this quilt
and hope to catch up in the next month or so.

It took me a while to collect all of the fabrics
and by then January was half over already.
These blocks above are for January.
The blocks below are ready to be sewn
for February.

I need to get the rest of March's blocks cut and then
start on April's.

Mary at Needled Mom and her sister
started this quilt along back in January.
Their quilts look so cool already
and are so different.
Hopefully I will have something to show soon.

Be well
Happy Quilting!

It great to see that quilt all quilted. I LOVE that one and the quilting looks so nice on the solid backing.

I'm sorry to hear that your mom is still having so much pain. Yes, we are all impatient during times like that. Glad your siblings could jump in so you could visit the kids in CA. It looks like a fun visit for everyone.

You will have your temp quilt caught up in no time. Your blues are so pretty in there. It looks like you are a good mix between Joan's and my colors. I can't wait to see how it looks all together.
