Sampler...


Sandy's sampler, that is. She is doing a BOM for the ladies of her local crafting circle. I just had to get in on the fun. This is their second month, but I get going on something and it's hard to stop. Poor Sandy having to come up with all twelve blocks in two months. But I sure did have a fun time of it! Can ya tell? I'm not sure how I'll set them, yet. More of the fun.


The little ones are like a litter of puppies- they just pile together. You can tell they really are sick, poor babies. Bill took them to the dr, last night and... it seems that Eva has strep and the others have ear infections. So antibiotics were started- their first time ever and WOW! what a difference. They are jabbering and feeling so much better. That's a relief as I don't know how much more of their doldrums I could have endured- when the kids aren't happy, Mama ain't happy! They are on the mend now, though. They love that blanket- my Minkee Blankee. Soft doesn't begin to describe it and I put extra high loft batting in it so it is super warm. It's a perk that they get to use it when they are sick.

one or two treats to provide comfort when sick and miserable lighten the burden for everyone :-) Hope the drugs work quickly and effectively.

I just love the pic of the kids snuggled in your Minkee blanket. They're as cute as "bugs in a rug" or in this case I should say "bugs in a Minkee"...LOL

Glad to hear everyone's on the mend. It's been a bad year for illnesses--let 'em know they're not alone, and to get well soon!

You've hit the nail on the head there - puppies snuggled together, all of 'em - so sweet. Hope they get better soon

Poor babies! So glad they are on the mend. I thought Ethan was all better, until last night. He came into our room twice in the night, complaining of his ear hurting. So off to the Doc we are going this morning to get him on some antibiotics too.
