A Little Under the Weather

This past week I was not feeling at my best, whatever my best is! LOL!
That is why I was not able to visit blog buddies. So sorry I missed my weekly go rounds.
Anyway I had a horrid tooth pain that came on in the middle of the night earlier in the week and the next morning I called the Dentist and he got me in at 3. I was in so much pain it was a 10 and I did cry. It was awful. Come to find out I had a split root, the tooth could not be saved. I was shocked and sad. But thankfully it was the very last molar on the top. I thought the dentist could save all teeth one way or another. Well while he pulled it out it exposed my sinus and then I was sent home to recuperate with 3 medications. Pain Med, Penicillin, and a nasal decongestant medication.  
I am recuperating, but I also have had bad bad allergies.

Steve and I talk about selling the house next year and renting until he can find a job in Oregon, the weather is better for me there and we love it there.

This week, just yesterday I finished my Hexagon quilt for my granddaughter Morgan (Image Missing.) 
The backing is the red fabric. I quilted lines through the hexes and diamonds through the diamonds and it made the back look so pretty with the diamonds showing on the red fabric as quilted. I am saying I am in love with this hexie quilt.  The sides were done zigzag instead of me cutting them strait off. So this made for a two evening hand sewing go around of the quilt doing all the zigs and zags, it was a lot of work. 

I am working on this one still it looks the same as last week except I sewed the Ohio star together, it just needs the trim and then I will quilt it this week and another quilt done. Yay!

My pets were fun and helpful this week.
Edee my sweet little Pumpkin

Here she is wearing a cute bow

And Effie wanting to get in the new quilt when I was trying to quilt it on my lap. She was so jealous.

She finally decided to hop right on it and make it difficult for me to stitch around the border. 

I posted a wonderful idea I think to my sun catcher site this week called 4 Season's Suncatcher Crystal Suncatcher Gift Pack. It's a crystal sun catcher for all the season's that would make a great Christmas Gift. You should check it out even if you don't want purchase anything, I just love the idea of it and made special gift wrap for it with handmade crafted Poinsettia flowers. So cute.

This is only one option, but I have more options. 

Probably better change the photo to only red gift tags or brownish color, blue does not fit!

Have a wonderful week!



  1. Hello dear Kat! It sounds like you have been through a lot lately. I am so sorry you were under the weather, but am glad you are doing better. Your quilts are always so beautiful - you are very talented, my friend :) So good to hear from you and may you have a lovely week. Hugs!

  2. Oh Wow sounds like you really had a hard time with that tooth, so sorry it was so much pain, hope you are on the mend. Hope your hubby can find a job in Oregon, I am sure it would be nice to feel better.
    Your quilt turned out just lovely and your border is so pretty, worth all that work, your star is coming along beautifully too! Your doggies are too cute, Peanut won't let me dress her up, just won't stand for it. My cats and Peanut always are all over me when I try to sit down and stich, they have to be front in center and have my attention. Your packaging is so sweet, I love to put flowers on my packaging instead of bows :) Your sun catchers look terrific too, so pretty to see them hanging outside.
    On my blog I must not have been clear writing, when I said our kids I meant my friends daughter and my daughter, you were right I only have one :)

  3. The hexagon quilt is so pretty and I am sure Morgan will love it. Sorry about your tooth, that has happened to me too. I hope things work out for your move. We are going to sell next year and downsize. Take care of yourself! Hugs

  4. You are so talented.
    I hope you are feeling much better now.


Have a wonderful day! ~Kat
