There is lots for me to share with you this week. The past several posts I’ve only had 1 or 2 pictures. Today I have quite a few.
I volunteered to stay with my mom for a few days after she was released from the hospital last Thursday. I am still here as the different agencies feel that she needs 24 hour care. We are having trouble finding a home with openings. I’m no longer planning on making it to the retreat next week. As you know, I already had several projects here at her apartment, as well as my sewing machine. I did make one trip this week to my house to get more thread and instructions for crocheting the hacky sacks.
My daughter is back in the hospital for 6 days of chemo, another bone marrow biopsy and a lumbar puncture. She went in Monday.
Last week’s to-do list:
- Finish jigsaw puzzle–haven’t been home to work on this.
- Continue daily to listen to the Bible read on my computer and crocheting a prayer shawl.–Done
- Finish the top of Ariel’s baby quilt.–Done
- Cut fabrics to make more pin cushion scrap bags.–Done
- Finish 4 pocket tissue covers.–Done
I’ve been listening to the Bible read out loud here at my mom’s and I think she has also enjoyed listening with me each day.
The first thing I finished here at mom was Ariel’s baby quilt top. Next step on it is to take it to the makery room at the public library and embroider the baby’s name on it.
I have these fabrics cut to make 4 pin cushion scrap bags.
And…..I even finished one of them and it’s now in my booth.
My goal for the last week was to complete 4 of the pocket tissue covers. I finished 5, plus have 7 more to finish up.
I even got a start on my quilt guild challenge.
In addition to the pictures, I finished 2 patchwork hot pads, 2 microwave cozies, 2 scrubbies, and have a start to make 2 hacky sacks.
Once I do get to go home, I really must figure out how to get the time I’ve had at mom’s to do crafts at home. After all, I’m having to fix the meals here, wash dishes, help with laundry, help with her bathing and dressing, and more. All of that takes time as well.
Here is my to-do list for this next week:
- Get to the library to get baby’s name embroidered on the baby quilt.
- Continue daily to listen to the Bible read on my computer and crocheting a prayer shawl.
- Make 4 covered notebooks.
- Finished another pin cushion scrap bag.
- Make 4 microwave cozies.

I’m so glad to get an update on your daughter. Ugh on the lumbar puncture. What I remember about one I had was that I got a headache from it. Sending prayers her way! I’ll also pray you are able to find a solution for your Mom. You are a good Mom and daughter! You’ve gotten so much done. I love that scrap bag! And that black and white block with the hearts is sooooo cute! Are the hearts appliqued?
Please take care of you, and thank you for linking up with To Do Tuesday.
They are all sewn around now with a blanket stitch in red thread. I have to go to my house for batting before I can finish it up. We turn in the challenge at guild in April so I have awhile yet to complete it.
You’ve really made a lot of things this past week! Prayers going out for both your mom and your daughter!
Prayers for your daughter and for you, in finding a safe place for mom. You are rocking it in the sewing department—got so much done! Love your little Guild challenge quilt. So cute. Thanks for sharing your projects on Wednesday Wait Loss.
