Once I find where I put this quilt I will be able to add these blocks to it.

Stayed home with my little one today. I called the school and asked to speak to the nurse. There were two confirmed cases of H1N1 in my son’s classroom on Friday. I would say with a fever of 104 degrees Sunday evening my little one has been fighting a big bug. The good thing is her is better today. He still is not moving as much but he is better. No medicine today at all and the fever stayed down. The nurse said he has to have a temp below 100 without medication for 24 hours before he can return to school. He just asked me if he can work on his homework so I think he is getting ready at least psychologically for school.

I was so scared though I slept in his bed with him last night. He lifted his head about 1am and said. “Mom I really need to get this right.” I asked him what and he said “I really need to get this right”. I asked him if he needed to go to the bathroom and he got up went into the bathroom and proceeded to get the wall wet. I can tell you he didn’t get something right. I had some cleaning to do!

I am so glad my son is feeling better today. My heart goes out to all the families who have lost little ones with the H1N1 virus. This little guy came home at 3lbs 6oz. I stayed at home that entire first year. If he was born right now and he was going through this I could have lost him. It is a serious matter.

My friend Carol gave me little little witch so today I made a diamond for my sting piece quilt in honor of the little kitchen witch. I just happen to have the same fabric that her hat is made out of in my stash!

I did quickly sew two rows onto my Patriotic table runner. The 4-patches were done they just needed to be sewn together and onto the piece. I didn’t get this done for the 4th of July so I hope to have a little patriotic Christmas display this year. Do you think it is possible?

Off to quilting tonight. My hope was to sew a few rows onto the Half Square Triangle quilt. I made it down one row and the squares no longer lined up. I have to do some ripping. I got the blocks from Susie. We are at her house tonight. He Mom, Jan, died 6 months ago and Susie back into the house and has renovated it. She is the sole survivor in the family. Tonight is dedicated to Jan. Six months have gone by already. How does that happen?

    So happy your little boy is feeling better ! He is adorable. And I admire your quilting very much ! Those diamonds, were they sewed on a cardboard piece like in the “Grand-mother ‘s flowers garden” ? I still have not finished mine … slowly but surely I will though 🙂

    Thanks, isathreadsoflife, I do like to pin pieces to a cardboard base to lay out a miniature quilt pattern. On this one I have pieces of paper in the shape of the diamond and I pin fabric to the paper until I have enough to sew a diamond together. It allows me to play with the colors a little and a place to put scraps when I have leftovers from other projects. I do have the fabric foundations cut out of an old sheet. I need to cut more though. I’ve used almost all of them I had cut out. That means progress!
