One Dr. appt., plus one inhaler, plus a trip to the store to get a new humidifier b/c we couldn't get the old one to work, plus the ENTIRE (as in did not move) day on the couch watching cartoons-which has NEVER happened in his 5 years of life, and the entire night with the humidifier going and he woke up breathing better and talking. Whew. What a relief.
He has rarely been sick in his life, (all those times I caught him chewing on the cart handle at Target as a baby must have built his immune system!) so when he gets this sick, it just almost makes me physically sick. It's so hard to watch your kid be sick. Parents who have kids with chronic illnesses are my heroes. I can't imagine the strength they have!
So while he was on the couch, I spent my time Swooning over #5. (in between surfing the DVR for cartoon after cartoon--thank goodness I hadn't erased all of the ones we had recorded, they really came in handy!)
So here is #5, in my classic blurry photo style. :o) It's red and black, I like it a lot.
This particular secondary fabric reads as a solid, but it really isn't. It has a cute little swirly pattern that I love. The lighter green in the #4 block has this same swirl print. So does the yellow I'll be using next.
Next, I will be cutting out #6. I have the yellow pieces cut, now just need to cut the blue.
Here is the Swoon family so far all laid out in the floor with my little step stool hiding a little stain on the rug. LOL
I will say it again.. I LOVE this pattern, it's so much fun to sew. :o)
Giveaway is still open, just scroll back a couple of posts to enter. And have a great Wednesday/Thursday. Gonna link up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday and Making Rebecca Lynne for TTT. xo
Aw. I'm hoping the boy gets better really soon. Another point of similarity - Greta had croup (same type of illness I believe) a couple of weeks ago. She missed a couple of days of school and a birthday party. It was all very traumatic. But she's back to normal now, and I am sure your cutie will be too.
Swooning along nicely there! Hope the wee one feels better soon, I totally sympathise, I had tonsillitis and laryngitis last week, which then moved on down to a chest infection that I'm now on high dose steroids, inhalers and antibiotics to get rid of :o/
This one turned out so cute too. I love that little swirly pattern too. I really enjoyed sewing it when I was making my quilt. I almost hated to cut it, but I did. It looks great in your blocks, so glad you aren't afraid of cutting it either. And so glad your baby is better. Being sick is horrible, poor little boy.
