Cancelled Trip, Finished Quilt



Our trip for today was cancelled. We were heading to see and surprise my FIL for his 75th birthday. Yesterday, all day, my DH was not feeling well. He just kept feeling worse. He has been in bed for most of today as well. Nothing serious, but he is miserable. He was concerned about spreading it to us as well as extended family, so we stayed home.

We had a day and a half free, but what to do? All of our mental planning was going towards a long van trip, but now we were free as birds.

I finished machine quilting my Double Pinwheel Quilt (above) and just moments ago put the last stitches in the binding. It's now in the washer. I even put a label on this. I'm coming along! Before long I'll have this quilting thing down.

Off to play a game with the kiddos.

Sorry your DH is not feeling well. Probably wise to cancel trip. I love your quilt. It is so pretty laying there all finished. Great job.

Bummer that your trip was canceled. Take two chocolate bars and call me in the morning. I'm sure it won't help your DH, but you'll feel better! LOL!

Lovely job on your quilt!

Looks great Joan, Sorry about the cancelled trip but sure was for the best. Let him stay in bed away from everyone else and get well. Hope the rest of you don't get it.
