Things have been at a quilty stand still over the past week.
First my next door neighbor's house was broken into and she was robbed. We live in a suburban area and this took us all by surprise. Luckily, she wasn't home and they only took jewelry, but I've felt disturbed ever since. My husband and I were home at the time of the robbery.
Then I went for my 22 week ultrasound. Everything is fine with the baby, but they found that I have placenta previa- a condition where the placenta covers part of the cervix. Luckily, in my case, it is only a partial coverage and I was told that 90% of the time it will resolve. In the meantime, I'm to watch for any bleeding and am on "pelvic rest" which means I can't lift more than 20# or do anything strenuous. I go for another ultrasound in one month to monitor the situation. Things could be soooo much worse, but I feel very nervous about things. At least 90% is about the best odds you can get.
So I've only done a little sewing. Someone I used to work with commissioned me to make a baby quilt for her sister. She told me she wanted dogs and that she "is sure" that her sister is having a girl, but they haven't found out the sex. She didn't want to shop so I went out on the hunt for fabrics. Everything was pink or blue. Now if you're not sure, you would think pink would be the wrong choice right? So this is what I came home with:
After that, I didn't feel too quilty, but today I felt the urge to hand quilt and got out "fireside chat"- my oldest UFO! It was supposed to be fall colors for last fall. Well, hopefully it will be done for this fall! hahah! We'll see :)
