Hope everyone had a great week! Ours was finally uneventful:) No falls and no sick furbabies:) yea!!!

Did get to attend our grand daughters bday party at Chuck E Cheese... hubby and I are both ok to not go there again for many years!!! We should of gotten an I survived t shirt or button!!

I did get to go to Bee and will show you what I have been working on:)

So on with the pictures!

This is the only quilt I got finished this week. This is Martha's mini churn dash quilt.
She had 110 mini churn dashes in it:)
Love the way the back looks:) She already has a bed for it and she was thinking of putting it in the show this July.
This what I am working on at Bee. The first 2 Bees I sewed the strip sets. This time I was able to sew all the light rows together. In between I pressed and cut:) Next time I will sew all the dark rows together. Seems to be a good thing to have a project just for Bee especially since I don't have much sewing time at home anymore.
Here is the corrected Lucy Bo…

Happy Late St Patty's Day:)

Hello all:)
Busy week here this week..... KoKo was syringe fed all week:( UGH Not fun! But once her new food arrived that stopped:) She likes it much better and the others like it to so no conflicts in the morning:) She got her stitches removed yesterday and I was able to pu a bag of prescription dry and they all like ti also:) Of course the others will still have their food available in a place where she can not get to:) She still takes 3 pills a day which she is not happy about but it will only be for another week and then maybe our lives can get back to normal?
My hand is definitely healing:) The bruising is only on the pinky now and  am able to bend it more everyday. The knee is also not as bruised but bending it or standing for any extended period of time is still painful:( But all in all a great improvement!
I did get some quilting done this week:)

My Project Linus Quilt is all done:)
Dot's challenge quilt She got way more pieces then I did in her kit!
She did a great job!

What a week!

Ok so not only was I recovering from my fall my kitty KoKo was at the vet everyday this past week:( She had stopped eating and was throwing up. Monday we went and they gave her a shot of nausea meds and antibiotics. Tuesday no better so she had xrays and bloodwork. They found a mass like item in her intestine, she stayed overnight with IV fluids. Wed she had ultrasound and exploratory surgery. They took 5 biopsies and sent off to Amarillo. Another overnight stay:( Doing better on Thursday but  by mid afternoon was running a fever so another night stay:( Friday she was doing much better! Her temp was normal and they were still syringe feeding her... she doesn't like her new food.... me either!..... The mass was on the outside of her intestines and was calcified fat, there was a string like object in her intestine... that was calcified fat string, her intestine walls were so coated that the food would just slide right through and no nutrients absorbed:( So I come home with my baby …

Happy March!
