My little angel.....ready for school

How quickly she has grown up. Here i am still wondering how the time flew since she was born and here she is ....3 already and going to school. Thankfully the school is only for a couple of hours. She spends the rest of the time chirping around me all the while and all her sentences begin with  'mommy'.

Result of my FNSI

There's block 2 and 3 and 2 rows out of 4 stitched together. I rather like how this quilt is coming up.  I now have another 4 months to decide how i will use it once it is complete.

Time for the Friday Night sew in again!

Blocks - ready
Embroidery thread - ready
Snacks - umm....not decided yet.
Coffee - I have bought a quaint little instant coffee filter from Cafe Coffee Day so i will have plenty of fresh coffee.
Ira to bed on time- well, that's something i cannot help however i plan to wake her up early from her afternoon nap.
DH - no clue what he would do.....i hope he feels like sitting up with me. It's been a while since we sat up for a movie or just to talk!

I plan to finish at least one block of the Birdie stitches BOM tonight. Then i would be done with the third one and still have five more to go.

Birdie Stitches BOM

The blocks for the Birdie Stitches BOM are finally sewn and i am already on block 2 with the stitching. I am stitching these birds in Redwork. I hope mine look half as good as the other people on Flickr who are doing the same.

The first stitched block....

Hope to finish the rest and catch up with the gang on Flickr soon. Happy stitching!! :)

Viruses....not in my computer though!

I have been longing to post my updates to the Birdie Stitches Stitch Along and the 36 patch quilt along. However for the past week or so my daughter and me were stuck in bed with a viral infection. Now the fever's receded and we are left with a bad cough. The timing is bad coz i have to at my mom's place next Monday for a function that i do not wish to miss. I managed to read a couple of books while i was laid up and also managed to sneak some embroidery. DH cooked for us while we were in bed and i guess that was the best part. :)

There's one occasion that shook me a little. The kiddo was kept away from me for a day when i had the temperature and she didn't. She tried a lot of times to come to my room to 'tell' me something important or 'show' me something that she had done. She was being constantly shooed away. She came to my room in the evening and stood by the door weeping. She told me she kept coming to me because she wanted to make me feel better and that she was scared that i didn't like her anymore. I don't understand where it came from but i realised i should have let her come in a couple of times or explained better why she wasn't allowed in my room. I guess that is why that entire day whenever i looked at her she kept on asking me to smile at her. It was her way of reassuring herself. I was very scared in that moment.
On a happier note.......she's back to being the normal brat seeing that i am now able to be with her once more. I would pray for more understanding and patience where she is concerned henceforth.
