Super busy, but can't show much

I really have been super busy this week.
Well, my kids were off monday for MLK, then off tuesday for teacher workday.
My son started getting a fever sunday-tuesday, tuesday morning I took him to the Dr, negative for the flu or strep, but I still kept him home wednesday.
Wednesday afternoon they called from the Dr. that the strep was positive! so I kept him home again today with a nasty cough too. Now it looks like we'll get snow tomorrow afternoon so the kids have early release at 11.30. Why even bother!? ha ha
NC schools are wimps....
Here's a few things I CAN show.
pot holders, using the winding ways Go! die, and Rhapsody of reds from Connecting threads
AND I got this idea too, sewing just the corner parts together 3 times

plus a little handle =

a cute little pin cushion :-)

And looks at SOMEONE's cute shoes!
I always thought it was silly to give shoes to babies, but I had these- BRAND new and lately Sonja has been Ms Cinderella with her socks.... so it HIT me to put shoes on her to prevent the socks from sliding off, it worked too! duh..... :-)

here's some funny quilty pics :-)

I hope your son is feeling better! Are you in the Raleigh area? Maybe the schools are letting out extra early to try to avoid another "Gridlock Day" like we had in 2005. That was bad news.

Hi Bea. I live in Georgia and they have already closed the schools for tomorrow.We are supposed to get some freezing rain early in the morning. We don't know what to do when we get snow or ice so everything closes down.
The pot holders are really cute and so is the pincushion. I keep thinking that I need to make me a new one but I haven't yet.
I really like the *sayings* that you posted. They are very funny.I think I need to post them in my sewing room.
Have a great night!

I saw your Baby Rattle quilt in McCall's and am wanting to make it for my new baby grandson. Since I like to check out the colors / fabrics before I start, I was hoping you might have the baby rattle block that I can put in my quilt software to make the color changes? I use Quilt Pro but I'll take any way you have it possible.
