It's Done

    My baby owl quilt is done and I have listed it in my etsy shop. I finished it last night and I am happy how it turned out. I told you I would post a picture as soon as I got it completed. It was a lot of fun to make. Now to decide what project to start next. I know that how long a quilt takes depends on the pattern and how many times you have to change colors. This one went quite well considering that I didn't have to change colors a lot. 
    The weather has been absolute beautiful here the last few days, but I know that it can't last because it is only the middle of January. I took hubby outside and pushed him around the parking lot this afternoon. He enjoyed the fresh air. We keep praying that he doesn't get sick because they keep saying the flu shot that was given was not for this strand.
I didn't exactly do what I had planned this weekend, but it was enjoyable just to be able to be outside in the sunshine. My youngest's bowling got cancelled and my middle one played three games on Saturday. It was basically scrimmage with three other teams. They are getting ready for a tournament that starts Thursday evening. How many games I will watch remains to be seen. I, also, have to fit my youngest pine wood derby in there. If the times I have been told is right, then it should work out. We will have to wait and see what happens. 
Hubby goes back to the eye doctor on Wednesday to see it the medicine that was injected in his eye finished doing it's job or if he will have to have another one. I just wish they could figure out his hip. I did get a copy of the x-ray report. I just need to get it translated in terms that I can understand. Some people like to throw around a lot of big words. 
Well hope you all have a wonderful week take care.

That quilt is a work of ART!!!!
Glad you were about to get out and soak up some good old fashioned SUNSHINE!!!
The sun was shining here in Texas, too, but I have been sick with a bad cold all weekend so I just looked at through the window.
The young ones keep us busy and on our toes, don't they?

OOO, your quilt is absolutely adorable. How talented you are.
Our weather has been beautiful, too, except for the wind. Temps near 70...

What a lovely quilt you've made Shirley - it's so cute! I love making baby quilts but it's so long since I've done one - you've inspired me to get cracking on one!
I hope all is well with you and your family - my husband got a flu shot this year as he had the flu so badly last year - so far so good. I'll keep my fingers crossed for your husband as well!
