Pictures Tell The Story!

The day started out great. There were gifts in the mail from Angie! She crocheted a dish cloth for me and also sent the cutest recipe cards and a pin cushion that is just the cutest thing! Then she topped it off with an Easter card and sweet note.
Thank you Angie! Go visit her blog. It is wonderful!

Then I finished the binding on my first little baby quilt!

This is not perfect but I am still proud of it.

This is the back. It looks crooked but that ok.
I didn't notice it until this picture. I am giving myself permission
to make mistakes so I can learn.

It is just made out of strips and then I tried the free motion quilting which I loved! It was fun.

I wanted to get the binding done because I wanted to take it to show my "Sweet Mom" .
I was meeting her for a little outing to the quilt store. I worked hard and got it finished and then forgot to take it! I should have known then that my day was not going to be so good. Ha!

I bought some more black & white fabric and a little surprise for a friend and then they gave me the Feb. Saturday Sampler Quilt block so I could re-do it since I messed it up. I just love this quilt store. They even have a blog. Go and visit - Lavender Lime Quilt Store

Then when I got back home my sweet daughter & I went to store to pick up a few things. As I was placing them in the trunk of her new car...........................

The trunk lid hit my head! HARD!
And so that is why I look so rough in this picture. I got very dizzy and sick and for sure had a very sore head and a big knot! We decided we better go get it checked out. So my day ended in the emergency room. Thank you to my "Sweet daughter," Maranda, for taking care of me. Have you ever heard that song......"Here's your sign?" Well, that is how I felt. They did a CT scan and everything looked fine. They told my family to wake me up every hour and check on me for 24 hours but I am fine! I have to say though.....I am pretty tired from my "Sweet honey" waking me up all night! Ha!

Hope today is a better day!
It makes you thankful for the normal days!
Off to sew now..............

P.S. "Sweet Daughter" is learning. She looked at me while sitting in ER and said, "Mom, too bad you don't have your camera?" I said," me, no camera?- of course I do!" She said, "this is a great blogging moment!" So that is how this picture was taken. Ha! You sure can't miss those "blogging moments!"

hopefully you will be allowed to sleep tonight!
the baby quilt is very cute. one thing i've learned through my quilting "adventures" is that "not perfect" is a good thing. if it was perfect it wouldn't be hand made, right?

I hope you are feeling better. Always keep that camera close, you never know when you will need it, A picture is worth a thousand words. Not to mention the visual memories you are storing up. watch out for those flying trunk lids. LOL

I am glad you went to the hospital to get checked out, and that you are alright. And what a cute quilt!

Krista said...

I hate days like that, but I am glad that you made it through it! good thing Maranda was with you. Your quilt looks great! I haven't tried the meandering stitch yet, but I want to. I still have to finish a couple of things that I am working on before I can start anything new.

It was wise to have the bump on the head checked out. Good thing it was not a serious injury too.
