Works In Progress...

It has been a long week and a quiet weekend was very needed. I had gotten a bad cold over Easter weekend-sometimes I am still surprised at how bad a cold can actually feel. On Monday, I woke to contractions! I ignored them assuming it was just braxton hicks. But about three hours later they were coming every 10 minutes, so I called my Dr to see what she thought. Needless to say, I had to go in and be monitored . Fortunately, they were not progressing into labor. She felt it was brought on by the cold and being slightly dehydrated-so lots of fluid and rest and no more cold medicine! The contractions finally ceased about 5 that night-whew...

I have rested most of the week and really did not even need to be told to, I have felt so icky and unbelievably exhausted. Standing for more than five minutes even would take it out of me. I saved any ounce of energy I could muster, for my daughters track meet on Thursday. I was also very fortunate that my husband's work week was lighter. But he is gone this weekend with both youth groups, so the younger kiddos and I have had a quiet weekend.

I spent most of it putting some quilt tops together. I worked from my scrap basket this weekend. Here are some pics of the progress-I will probably not come up with the strength to actually quilt them this weekend, but at least they are there waiting!!

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!!
