Sailboat quilt.... nearly done!

This is the sailboat quilt that will belong to Miss Emily.

This is one of the sailboats, a small meander in the sky and some circle swirls in the water.

This is the border - circle loops

I just need to bury the threads and hand stitch the binding down... a good project for watching tv with tonight.

I had thought Thursdays would be my midget block day... but I'm not in the mood for paper piecing right now and that is the next block. I'll attempt it this weekend while the kids are napping.... hmmm... maybe I'll do two midget blocks this weekend.
I think I'm in the mood to just sew.... so will pull the cut fabric for YBR and start stitching that after I get a few things done around the house.

I've done quite a bit of sewing in the last 2 weeks... the cause is my son. He had a bit of an episode a week ago Monday - a possible slight seizure they think was related to a high fever. It was dinnertime and I almost had dinner ready and he was in the living room with Daddy when this happened. Our Pediatrician is less than 5 miles from us and he was still at his office so we were able to get him there within 15 minutes of it happening. We then went to the ER for some blood work which all came back fine and they sent us home after a couple of hours. He is fine now and was back to his normal self a few days later but I guess it is bothering me a bit and sewing is helping to keep me calm. He goes tomorrow for an EEG scan at the hospital to check his brain waves. I'm sure everything will turn out fine, but I know I'll feel a lot better tomorrow afternoon once the tests are completed. Please keep him in your prayers tomorrow.
Happy stitching everyone.
