Boys! ..... oh and a little retail therapy

Master 16 came off his bike Tuesday.  Yep, boys will be boys.
Silly me thought that he only had minor bumps, scratches and bruises.
Seems it was a little more than that as come 10pm Wednesday night we had him to the 
Emergency Room at the Hospital.  
He was admitted and my head hit the pillow back at home sometime after 3am!
A few hours later, up again and getting the normal morning routine happening and as soon as the girls were dropped at school back to the hospital it was.

It always pays to have a hand sewing project ready to grab as you run out the door.

Master 16 is now at home resting for the next week. 
One very lucky boy.  Lesson learnt by me, NEVER rule out internal injuries.
Now to go hide his bike :o)

Now for some Retail Therapy :o)

My new Needle Minders. Aren't they just adorable.  There are some new ones being listed soon so I suspect I will be back to get a couple more. (See side of the card for the Etsy Shop)

Also, month 2 of the Cottage Garden Threads Club is out.

Which also means that the pattern for the Thread Case is available.
These are my fabric selections. I plan on making a start on this over this long weekend.

Enjoy your Friday,
hugs Sharon
