{ Yuckity, Yuck, Yuck! }

Miss Sassypants has mono! Yep, it started a week ago, Saturday, with a sore throat. We took her to the doctor on Monday & they tested her for strep. It came back negative. Throughout the week her throat was getting worse & she developed a fever. Her glands became so swollen that you could tell by just looking at her. Poor thing didn't eat all week. Just some protein shakes here & there. I took her back in on Friday & they told me it was mono. Ugh! When you looked in her throat it looked like she hardly had room to breath, her throat was so swollen & sore. And, I don't want to gross you out so don't read this next line if you have a weak constitution, but it is all mucussy (not a word) & pussy back there. Yuck! Poor thing has been crying all night long & moaning all day long all week long! They gave us a prescription to help with the swelling & she's finally feeling mostly better today. It has been a tough week for sure.
So, what do you do when you can't leave the house except for short trips to the grocery store for more milk & Motrin? (we've been through 3 bottles) I guess I could clean the fridge, dust the blinds or wipe down all the baseboards. But, instead I decided to do this...
I started a quilt that is on my summer to do list. I haven't made a quilt in quite a while & it has been fun. And it helps me from going stir crazy. I'm actually a homebody but, there's just something about knowing you can't leave rather than choosing not to leave. Know what I mean? I'll hopefully be showing you the finished quilt soon.

Poor little girly twirly. I would say hope she gets better soon...but I know better...just keep toughing it out until she's aloud to go back into public again.
Maybe you'll get lots of beautiful quilts done!

That fabric looks great together. Did you purchase it, or are they scraps you had laying around? I can't wait to see it finished!

Wonderful and Beautiful. I love the hot pads. I might have to steal that idea. Not just for teacher gifts!
