I finally got around to quilting this Panel I had made a while ago.
Pattern is by McKenna.
It’s all raw edge appliqued and since I did it in black I wasn’t sure what color to quilt it in, then I thought of WHITE and just did it simple. I only quilted the applique shapes and nothing else
After I quilted it, I trimmed it down and made a pillow
I even added a zipper! forgot how EASY that was for a pillow!
Since I just quilted the shapes it made everything else be more puffy, a fun effect
Thought it would be fitting to post this on Good Friday!
My faith was SURELY tested last week, some of you know my story now and some of you know I just had a bummer week.
I wasn’t going to share it here, but then I also felt I should even though it may be TMI….
Anyways, I had a miscarriage! I was 9wks along and last Sunday started spotting, then the night to Monday I started labor pains and bleeding and passed it/him/her Monday morning….. it really hit me hard. But I know it’s God’s way of saying that something was wrong and He took care of it!
I’ve had a miscarriage before 10yrs ago between my other two kids but I wasn’t that far along and it didn’t hit me as hard as this time.
Then Tuesday Sonja got into my new bottle of ibuprofen, I knew she ate one pill and called 911, they called poison control and weren’t too worried, but then we found an open bottle of children’s liquid ibuprofen and it was empty, though I thought it was close to empty before and there were no spills or sticky-ness on her, but we weren’t sure, so we took her to the ER, after 2 hrs we got sent home and was told it’s really hard to O.D on ibuprofen, you can’t test the blood for it and there was no need to empty her stomach, so that was at least good news!
But I sure didn’t feel like a SUPER mommy last week!
I’m okay now, of course I’ll feel the loss for a while
just felt like I had to share this.
We’re going to spend Easter with friends and the girls will wear their new dresses!
Hope you all have a Blessed Easter weekend, and remember the true reason why we celebrate.
