A few Sew & Tells...

It was a Wonky Bits day today!
This is Pg's latest finish. It is an Art to Heart pattern...
"Fall Festival" by Nancy Halvorsen
Such rich colors Pg!!! Love it! 8-)
This is Jb's work in progress. This quilt is being made for her son... Once she attaches the sides, top, and bottom pictured here, she has another boarder to add...
Looking great J!!! 8-)
Jb was busy hand-sewing the binding down on this adorable little Christmas table topper...after we figured out how best to lay the binding nicely with the least amount of bulk at those corners. Her pattern called for the binding to be attached in this manner... J says she won't be putting it on like this again...
Looking good J!! 8-)
Movies we rented on Thursday, for a 7 day stretch...Step-Bros was funny-stupid, and with way toooooo much swearing... Last-Ch-Harv was pretty good...
DS and I watched Inkheart on Friday together, and I watched it ag
ain with DH last night (he was gone camping over the weekend) ... I've heard it is a trilogy, so I am looking forward to that, and I think I will pick up the books at some point too... 8-)

I went to see DD2 right after WBs today. Brought her some jars of baby fruit and apple sauce to try and get down. We thought she had toncilitus (on antibiotics), but Doc called this morning to say blood work shows it is mono... OH great!!!
DD2 hasn't eat
en for 4 days now, and is only sucking on popsicles, ice-cubes, slurpies, and freezes... She has a busy weekend coming. A bridesmaid commitment...
I hope she fi
gures out when to avoid what she can, and rest, and doesn't faint at the altar!!! Hope those antibiotics kick in fast...
Her boss
told her that they don't want to see her at work until after the long weekend, which would be September 8th...

I raided DD2's DVD trunk and brought home a bag full to watch over then next few weeks... She has tons of them!!!! Wow!

Happy stitchings!
Myra

Oh my, I home DD2 is feeling better soon. Hopefully she takes it easy this weekend and gets a lot of rest in. I have heard that mono can sure throw one for a loop. Wish her well!
