That's how I spent the 4th - pitiful, isn't it?! My family went to the beach in the AM and I stayed home with the boy since he couldn't be convinced to go to the beach (I think he has a fear of it now).
He is doing SO well and not wearing his sling and using his arm a bit to - kids sure heal fast!
So I stayed home with him and finished the quilting on this:
But in doing so, I managed to wear myself out completely. I've had a sore throat for a few days now and just feel exhausted but stupidly tried to play soccer on Sunday and then that evening we had a party for the birthday boy with our family. I just overdid it.
I'm still feeling tired today but I'm trying to just take it easy. If I don't get better, I may have to head to the doctor.
I did get some very fun mail today though.
My swap package from Naomi:
So fun - can't wait to cram all my plastic bags in this.
She also sent two knitted dishcloths, a linen handtowel, and a super cute potholder. Love it!!
I also got these gorgeous fabrics (from here)....
I want to use that black newsprint fabric in a quilt like Amy's.
And I finished up the binding on Bela's quilt today (while watching soccer, of course).
Just need a tall person to come home and hold it for me so I can take some pictures (my giant son is at the beach - he's now 5'8" - how did that happen?!).
