All is well

We're back now, and Cam is just fine and dandy. He had a check up at the hospital this morning, and they've declared him just fine. I just wish I knew what kind of bug it was that bit him ... it would just set my mind at ease ... but anyways, what can you do?

A great time was had by all at the beach house. The weather was mild, which was nice, I don't like it when it's super hot over there, as there's only minimal cooling in the house. The kids (and Marty) spent quite a bit of time at the beach, and also on the bikes.

I relaxed entirely, and believe it or not didn't take any quilting with me! I did take my knitting, and almost finished the second sock. I came so close, I'm at the stage now where I'm decreasing for the toe. I'm amazed I'm not working on it right now, I love finishes! Usually I break out the laptop and do some designing too, and I didn't even do that!

After we'd unpacked last night, I hit the sewing room and put together more of my zig zag nine patch quilt. I just love how the pattern is coming together. It's super fun looking at the scraps and remembering what they were used in, and looking and Linda's blocks and wondering what her fabrics went into.

Well, that's it for me, we're heading off to Sharon's house for a little while, and then off to see Grandpa Pearce. Another day in Paradise!

The zig zag nine patch is so nice. What will you quilt in the light squares?
And I envie you that nice weather. The rain has been pouring down for days (weeks) now where I live. A very unusual winter in Norway. Where is the snow. I am so longing for sun and warmth. Or snow which would be more usual this time of the year.

I'm glad to hear that Cam is OK. I love the way you have set your ninepatches into a zig zag. Scrap quilts are so much fun to make. I can't wait to see how you decide to quilt it.

Lovely zig-zaggy scrappy chaos. Organized chaos, of course--the best kind. This quilt is going to be terrific! Very jealous of your summer weather...

Nice looking nine patch. It is good to hear that Cam is all better. It certainly would be nice to know who was the culprit, just so it could be avoided in the future!

Glad you are all fine. Scrappy 9 patch looks interesting set out like that. It will be lovely.

Your zig zag is looking great! What fun. And what fun the "boating" on the water looks! Now that looks like fun!

Glad you had a good time and that Cam is feeling better. That must have been very nasty.

I love the zig-zag nine patch, it's beautiful. My favourite thing about scrap quilts is remembering all the projects that produced the scraps.
