First the Bee Sting, then the Honey

Welcome to our home:

A rough two weeks of stress has landed me in the hot seat of an acute bout of asthmatic bronchitis.
Busying myself in the business of others, not staying in the day, not practicing self-care and not listening to the wisdom of my dear man...when he said, "just go sew".....
Our wedding anniversary and the month of May...not Merry...
Add steroids and... Mrs. O'Quilts fell right off the mountain.
Lucky for me, I landed on a ledge, sustaining just a crack.
Whew...that crack has been repaired and I am better than ever before.
Who, may I ask, likes to learn the hard way???

That's enough....I am better today...!! Look what I finished..
Still cannot quilt until middle July...but so happy to have a finished top..
HSTs from a layer cake.
 I thought this last potholder Evan made for his 6th grade PE teacher was adorable.
Evan did all the sewing on his potholders.  I chose the fabric and as time ran out, I did the bindings..
They are all done.
Lynsey and Dylan finished off their school counselor potholders..

And look who is all ready for field day in 2nd grade??
The light is shining...the evening ending well.
I am better...So happy.
Thanks to all of you who missed me.

Lovely to see your post, that is a very pretty quilt and the pot holder King has done it again for his P.E. Teacher. I hope miss Lyndsey enjoyed her day. Looking after yourself is so important, please take extra care to rest and laugh.

So good to hear from you! Congratulations on the finishes! Binding potholders is no easy job. Hope you will continue to heal. ❌❌

What special and unique teacher gifts. When I taught elementary school, those were the types of gifts to bring a little tear to my eye. Hope you get the rest you need! Self care, self care!
