Worrying makes you tired!

Not that I really worry much as most everything is out of my hands but I was tired this week.  The family was having a few troubles...2 were having car problems, 1 phone problems and Grayson my littlest grand baby was in the hospital.  He had stomach flu which triggered his bronchial/asthmatic/allergic reactions of not being able to get his breath.  How scary for a little one.  But he's home now and doing better and has today and the weekend to recover before he goes back to daycare.
 This is yesterday morning before he was released later that day.  They put him on steroids which was all this little guy needed! LOL!  My daughter thought they should give some to the Mom too as you don't require as much sleep and they give you all kinds of extra energy.  Just what a toddler does not need! LOL!   His Uncle Ben (my son) stopped by to see him and brought him a present from Grandma......a jeep with a soldier?  His Mother and I don't do guns or war toys.....Ben knows that but he loves to tease.  It was funny because Grayson said he got a farmer on a tractor! LOL!   Can you tell he's from Iowa?
So, things have settled down and all is good but the phone lines were humming between here and Iowa!  I did manage to get a little knitting in on Ben's scarf for Christmas.....61 inches long?   I'd better hurry it up!  This is the linen stitch if I remember correctly and is nice and close woven for a scarf for the North.
I spent some time on my little doll quilt and now the top is finally done.  There's no yellow it is just laying on a little yellow quilt.  This was all from scraps.  Next I need to find material for the back.  I wanted to get the top done so I could put my walking foot back on my machine to finish Uriah's quilt.  He'll be in college before I finish it if I don't get a move on! LOL!
 The pentagon is almost done...just need to close up the top there and I can start on another one.  EPP (English Paper Piecing) is great handwork for evenings watching t.v.

Connie suggested putting it into a teacup but I don't have one of those either! LOL!  I'll find something!  Although I really do like the idea of the little jello cute.
Have a great Friday, it's FNWF's tonight, it's 55 degrees F here but raining.  I'm going to make a pizza for tonight and some cookies after I finish sewing that quilt!


  1. Ooh, I'm glad that cutie is okay. What a scare for you all. The linen stitch is nice and tight. The ball is perfecto.

  2. What a terrible ordeal for everyone. Watching a child struggle for breath is really frightening. So glad he is getting better

  3. You have been busy! I'm so glad your little guy is on the mend. the linen stitch scarf is beautiful and I love the hexie ball.

  4. So sorry to hear of Grandson and happy he is home. Poor sweetie.

    What a terrible time for all when children get ill. Sorry to hear that.

    Then cars having problems.

    Been there.

    Well G.Boy got a nice gift from you Grandma. Good choice. Little kiddies don't need to be getting guns . It teaches war. We have enough in the world now. Who needs guns and all. Hugs

  5. You are so right...worrying makes you so tired! I hope everyone is doing better now and things get straightened out. I'll keep your family and this sweet little one in my, too! Holiday hugs, Diane

  6. So glad little Grayson is on the mend and home again now. Sounds like quite a week. Gorgeous little mini quilt and I love the hexie cute! I'm still working on my hexie quilt which I like to do whilst watching TV too...I'll think of you! X

  7. So sorry you have had a worrying time....and yes, it does make you tired. I am glad your little grandson is recovering from the scary ordeal and is home again. Your crafty makes are lovely, Sam.
    Wishing you a happy trouble free week.
    Helen xox

  8. Hope Grayson continues to improve! Kids anyway...not much you can do but listen and let them work out all their problems with cars and phones!
    Your pentagon looks great! Maybe you will find something in a thrift shop or at a garage sale..a custard cup maybe:)
