Poor Kitty - a finish Friday

I've had my share of drama this week.  Luckily, it has not been too serious, but I really could have done without it all in the first place.

First,  Wednesday night DD3 had a chair fall on her arm at a strange angle, so off we went to the ER.  Nothing broken.  In fact, by the time we got back to see the Dr. for evaluation, she was practically doing gymnastics in the bed.  Thank goodness.

Then this morning, I couldn't find Tookie in any of her usual spots.  I found her later outside in the bushes near our garage.  She is an inside only cat.  She had fallen from our balcony.  Off we went to the vet in haste.  Luckily she didn't have any major injuries.  She seems to have sprained her front paws and has a little scrape on her chin, but other than being sore, she's fine.  Seriously, a miracle.  Poor kitty.

It feels better to tell someone my troubles today.  DH is out of town and the kids just don't understand fully.

I do have a quilt finish to share today, though it was officially done last Saturday.

Beginner Quilt Along - finally finished

I finally finished my dreaded Beginner's Quilt Along quilt.  I did some stitch in the ditch quilting quite a while ago and left it, thinking I would do some free-motion as well.  But honestly, I was done with it.  I didn't even want to look at it any more.  It's not that it is an ugly quilt, I just was tired of it.   So, I finally stitched on the binding.  It is DONE and already donated!  And that's another UFO crossed of the list.

Thanks for reading today, and I'm sure Tookie will appreciate any prayers you can spare,

  1. Oh Jen I feel for you! My youngest ended up at A&E (accident and emergency) so often I was once asked by the receptionist if she was on the At Risk register ! Poor kitty too, let's hope the superstition about things happening in threes is a load of rubbish! The pink quilt though, is lovely, but sometimes we need to let projects *mature* out of site before we can love them again! Or send them away, that's good too!!!! Someone will be delighted with it! Hope the weekend is better xxx

  2. I can understand the frustration of working on a quilt for ages ... I also know the feeling of the "once I'm better at XYZ I will get back to it and finish it" - which is why I have several quilt tops that need quilting and I keep telling myself I ned some more practice first. But then how am I goign to get the practice if I don't quilt ... ahh the hend and the egg ....
    Even though pink is certainly not my colour - I'm sure there is someone out there who will absolutley love their new pink blanket.

  3. Congratulations on finishing the pink quilt. Now you can move on. I hope that your family are all fully recovered and you soon get back in your routine.

  4. Finished UFO is always great. Fingers crossed for better days!

  5. I know what you mean by just wanting it done, Jen! Glad things worked out okay. Hope the drama subsides now. :)

  6. Gosh why do these things always happen when you are on your own Jen? Glad to hear that both of them survived their traumas.

    Your quilt will be much loved by its' recipient I am sure.

  7. Luckily no serious injuries but I do hope hope next week will bring better fortune to you all :) Your quilt is lovely :)

  8. What a week! Wonderful pink sampler quilt. Congratulations on a UFO finish. Love it when I cross a UFO off my list.


I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
