Grandmothers Choice blocks

This weeks block is called Ladies' Wreath: Mourning for Mother. It was very easy to piece and put together but really makes you think how lucky we are to have the options we do in having children. The options and choice for having them and the wonderful medical measures we have to enable safe childbirth is amazing considering it was just 100 years ago that we did not have all that available to us. It really makes me realize how lucky we are in this world right now.

Today is a kids home day - the boy is running a fever from his shots yesterday and the girl has a touch of a fever too. They must be feeling better ... they are both wanting to do more HIPPY lessons so it is back to being the teacher again this morning.

HIPPY lessons? Did I miss/forget something? ;-)

As someone who had a very difficult childbirth experience, I am especially thankful for modern medicine.

I just love that block ... I can't wait to see them when they're all done and put together.

Great block - I don't know if I am ever going to get enough done on my current to-do list to make these blocks. I still have some hope that I will be able to join in. I also love the advantages of modern medicine.
