Except for the shopping, I've been taking it easy because my dear husband gave me a concussion on Saturday. We came home from Target on Saturday night and he grabbed some of the bags out of the back of the car. He asked me to get the last one, so I leaned in, got it and when I straightened back up he slammed the tailgate on my head. Yeah, that hurt. I spent some quality time with an ice pack and except for a little blurred vision and a killer headache, I'm doing okay. Although, if the headache doesn't ease soon it may warrant a trip to the doctor. Good thing I have a hard head!
I need a mindless project right now since I can't seem to concentrate (wonder why???) so I cast on a little ribbed knit cap for Newborns in Need. It's very cute, I may have to make a few of these! Pictures when it's a little bigger...

Viv finally allowed her daddy to take a picture of her with her quilt...I think she likes it!
I received a wonderful Pay It Forward gift from Tami at Getting Started. Thanks Tami, I love it!
And I've joined the Stitchers' Angel Swap, you can read about it here, or by clicking on the picture in my sidebar.
Too bad I didn't mention any quilting going on here! Maybe next week...

This past weekend also marked my parents' 50th anniversary. We surprised them with a family dinner at a local Italian restaurant, then went back to their house for cake and coffee. Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad...here's to another 50 healthy, happy years!
I'm not sure if my partner for the Four Seasons Quilt Swap reads my blog, but if you do...your quilt is on its way to you! You should have it on Thursday...I hope you like it!

Their daughters, Brittany and Katrina
And in case you think there's no quilting going on, I did finish Viv's quilt...but forgot to take a picture. I also finished my Four Seasons Quilt Swap quilt. I'ts overcast and I couldn't get a good picture of it, so here's a bad one. I hope my partner likes it...once I make the label it will be heading somewhere in the US!
I've also started playing catch up on my Dear Jane quilt. I've missed 11 blocks and one triangle, so will spend the next few days trying to get them done. Last night I put together H-13...the easiest of the blocks I missed! I also had another guitar lesson last Thursday. I'm enjoying it, but have found I get very frustrated when my fingers won't move the way they're supposed to! I'm working on it...

And I've found time to do a little quilting. I finished piecing this top this morning, then quilted it and sewed the binding on this afternoon. Tomorrow, we're heading to NY to see friends that we haven't seen in the 10 years since we moved back to NJ. I'll be hand stitching the binding to the back of it as we drive...hopefully I can finish it and get it washed so I can give it to a little girl on Thursday night...I hope she likes it!
