Quilts for Kids - WIP

It's been a tough few weeks with my mother being transferred from the hospital to a rehab facility and with our own health issues, not much sewing is happening these days. Between taking my husband to his physical therapy and doctor appointments and my own, we've become a pretty familiar duo over at Midwest Orthopedic Specialty Hospital. His rotator cuff surgery and my cervical fusion surgery has left 2 good hands/arms between the two of us.  That's not a good thing when the snow started to fall. I do have to admit though, learning to use the snow blower was kind of fun.  It is self-propelled with reverse so it is so easy to use, I pretty much just walk behind it. Thank God, because I am in no condition to do much more than that.

It doesn't help that I am not finding inspiration/motivation in making something.  That feels awful because it's a new year and I think of it as a fresh start on new projects following the end of the Christmas season, but I'm just not feeling it.  So I decided to pick up a kit at the last Quilts for Kids meeting and complete it.  Those kits are nice when I'm lacking creativity because the pattern is in the kit and all the fabric is already cut out...just sew it together, add batting between the backing and the quilt top and complete it. It can't get much easier than that.

I got the top pieced, the layers sandwiched and quilted and now I am ready to put the binding on.  All of a sudden I have a new helper here today. For some crazy reason, I'm feeling that motivation just slipping away again.  Seems like a great day for a cat nap instead of a quilt finish.
