WIP Wednesday

Lots has been going on around here lately, but not all good stuff unfortunately. My sweetie was rushed to the hospital on Friday because the entire right side of his face was suddenly paralyzed. I didn't tell him at the time that I thought he might have had a stroke, but I really got scared.

Turns out he has something called Bell's Palsy and with time, he should get back to normal. Between going to work, taking care of my sweetie, taking Dylan to karate lessons and running errands, I've been busy in the sewing room.

I made a few more modern cross blocks...


I started making a pillow cover for my daughter's best friend using Oh Fransson!'s tutorial for the cat blocks...

I signed up for the 2014 Lucky Stars BOM over at Don't Call Me Betsy and while I was there, I figured I might as well get the 2013 patterns as well. Last night, I sewed the January 2013 star. I love it!

And that's pretty much it! What about you? What are you up to this week?

I will be linking up at Lee's for WIP Wednesday...

  1. Oh no! So sorry to hear about the medical crises. I've known two men to get hit with Bell's - it is so unexpected and hard to explain. It did go away for both of them just as you described. I hope it ends quickly for your man too.

    I LOVE the kitty cats - they are too cute. What a lucky girl! :)

  4. You have so much going I don't see where you have time to sew. I had Bell's Palsy about 27 years ago I was lucky it only lasted 3 weeks in my case. Wishing him a fast recovery. Nice quilt blocks.

  7. Bell's Palsy can be scary, Grizz had it years ago too and made a full recovery in just a few short months. Thankfully that's what it is and not a stroke! Love those cat blocks and modern crosses - so very pretty! Quilts for 2013 are complete (well, one I forgot about in the bottom of my basket, but no rush, so I'll probably leave it until the New Year), just picking away at small things now to keep busy, and trying my hand at knitting again.

  9. Sorry to hear about your sweety. My friend Deb http://vtquilter.blogspot.com/ is experiencing it right now. I found it so ironic to hear of two people experiencing it at the same time. My co-worker had it years ago and made a full recovery.

  12. Best wishes to your honey--I hope he recovers soon.

    I have thought about doing the BOM from Don't Call Me Betsy. Thanks for showing off your star...it's tempting me to click on over there to sign up.

  13. So sorry to hear about the medical emergency Izzy! You must have been so scared. What a difficult time. I believe my sister-in-law had Bell's Palsy and recovered quickly. She hasn't had a problem since that time. I hope the same for your sweetie. Love the blocks :-)
