Saturday in Yellow.

Yellow is such a happy color! The first sampler block - Air Castles was made this week. I love the different shades of yellow in this block.

Not much time in the sewing room this week as I had to pop into work a couple of mornings and then prep for company that arrived on Wednesday! Just in time for my Mom to celebrate her birthday with us on Thursday! It turns out we were very lucky they arrived Wednesday as the kids were fine when we put them to bed at 8PM but Aidan woke up around 10 and was unable to breathe. Usually he calms down and is better after a bit but he could not talk either so a quick trip to the Quick Care and a shot of steroid and a nebulizer treatment (first for us!) he was much better and able to breathe. Diagnosis was Croup - which he has had before many times as a toddler but he is 7! Hope he grows out of this eventually. Mom and Dad stayed home with Emily sleeping and we got home around 12:30 to a quiet house. Now he just has a cough, runny nose and cold symptoms but with some cough medicine he is off to Grandma's today. My parents are heading to my aunts for the weekend and I hope to plant a garden today and see if I can get something to grow down here! Wish me luck.


Head on over to SoScrappy on Saturday and see some great yellow projects.

  7. Aidan sure gave you a scare. Than heavens your mom and dad were over and able to stay with Emily. Great Castles in the Air block. Lovely tonal variation.

  9. Poor Aidan. Croup can be pretty scary, but it sounds like the nebulizer did the trick. So lucky that you had help there and did not have to take everyone along for a late night trip. Sure hope he feels better soon.

  11. Love your Air Castles block! Anyone being sick is not a good thing ... but especially so when it's one of the kiddos. Hope Aidan is feeling better *soon*. Thank goodness Grandma was there to stay home with Emily. Love your new header.
