I managed to complete another 4 quilt squares. I am really trying to stick to my goal of 2 per month. A small goal, but HUGE when you think about the time that goes into sitting and stitching...time not sewing clothing, which is a hard thing in itself! ha ha
Like the compass squares, there will be a few anchors to do.
This last one I knocked out in 3 days. One of my girls was hospitalized with pneumonia, so I took my hand embroidery to the hospital each day while I sat with her. We were a crafting duo. She sat and practiced calligraphy (once she was feeling better) while I stitched. She was admitted last Tuesday and was able to go home Friday morning. Her treatment consisted of breathing treatments and antibiotics. The doctors said we caught it early!
I now know the only thing worse than being in the hospital myself is having to have one of my children there. This was the first time she was ever away from home, which was hard for me. She did okay with that though, thankfully. The nurses and doctors were amazing!
