Thanks everyone for your birthday wishes! The giveaway winner was Karen O.; I'll be sending her a rainbow of scraps/charms. :) We went out to dinner as a family on my birthday and my husband is taking just me out to eat tonight; we're sort of stretching out the celebration. I also got a fun surprise package on Saturday from my friend in Kansas; she made me this adorable ruffled tote bag.
We've been getting into the swing of things now that the boys have been back in school for 2 weeks. We've had to adjust the routine and rules a little bit, but I think we've got a good system now as long as I can stick with it.
I have been faithfully working on my hand exercises, hoping I'll get most of the mobility back in the finger that I broke. I go to a hand therapist weekly and heat it up and do exercises 4-6 times a day. The bone is healed now and I'm so glad to be past that painful time. I have been given the ok to even use hand weights now and am working on getting the strength back in that hand.
A couple weeks ago I was the lucky winner of a giveaway from Beyond the Reef and wanted to give them a shout-out and thanks! I got this collection of fat quarters... I love the rich colors.
Curlicue Crush pattern by Bec at Chasing Cottons (scroll down a bit to see it) in mind for a while, and I think it would be a good pattern for some of these larger prints.
Looking forward to the weekend--hope you have a good one!
