WOW - this block packs some punch!

I sewed today. 

I decided that I needed to. 

Grab a project, any project and just sew for awhile. 

Just Take 2 seemed easy enough, after all that is why I started this quilt. But / Plus I am so far behind. There's nothing worse than joining a quilt along when you already have a ton of projects and then falling behind making you feel like you have another project that will never get finished. Although, honestly I don't feel that way about this one. That was never my intention. Something easy, that didn't require too much though. So I jumped right in.

A Lemoyne Star? Easy! I've done a bunch and it's went together easy peasy. Maybe a tutorial is in order ... I know I wrote one way back when for our Skills Building BOM. Hmmmm, might be time to dust that off and share ...

Anywhoo ... on to block two. How hard can a bunch of pinwheels be anyways? Well it helps to do the math right first. For some reason I don't have the patterns for installment 4. No biggy .. most are easy to figure out. Usually - as in unless you forget to add seem allowances. But once cut, it sewed up quick too so I could add TWO blocks to the pile for this quilt. And show you a pic of my progress.

Then I went back to see when I had last blogged about this project ... February 1st. 

I thought so ... oi vey. A rush of emotions. 


We had just passed week 19. 

I was pregnant and loving it. Things were going great.

Two days after blogging about this project we found out that baby number two was a boy. 

It was Arne.

This was his quilt.

Right now it still is. 

Maybe someday it will be somebody else's.


We saw the doctor on Tuesday.

I went in feeling sick and frustrated.

I left that appointment feeling more confident than I have in months.

We are not giving up.

'nuf said.


I'm glad I sewed today.
