Starting a new patchplay quilt...

I needed something fun and easy and so I started a patch PLAY quilt since Patch WORK does not sound like FUN and quilting should always be fun :o)



I needed a fun project since we have had a few crazy days filled with mishap and meyhem ( they need to add this one to the commercial)

We ( not me we,the other people we) had a small accident on Sunday with a five year old that was not felling well, a sister that wanted his help cleaning the basement and then there was a remote control thrown and then we ( I was included in this we) ended up spending the better part of our Sunday in the ER getting stitches. She is not a happy camper!


To add insult (or illness in this case) to injury, Monday night her throat started hurting and she had a fever...so did the little man...and lo and behold...STREP THROAT!!!!! I think my littles may be missing the WHOLE second week of school...sigh...

With the people home I had some help around the house with folding up fabric this morning. He loves doing it and I love the help!!!!!



I am hoping tomorrow will be nice and quiet so I can play with my patches some more!!!!!

Hee hee, love the idea of patchplay! That is a distinctly unhappy namesake of mine there, hope she's all better soon (although on the bright side, at least if she's sick then the kids at school can't see the worst of the remote control's work!)

Ouch hate it when the kids get stitches. My kids fight like cat's and dog's also and its funny the things they do to each other on accident.

Hope the family all gets well. In the mean time enjoy your quilting time.
