It's been a very long week. Oh, I know it's only 7 days like all the other weeks, it just seemed longer. Kristin went to the OB on Tuesday, and was told the baby would most likely come this week, but that she should make an appointment for next Tuesday just in case. But so far -- no baby. No one is more anxious than Kris is, she is huge, her hands, legs, and feet are swollen, and she's just tired. She took on more hours at work since her employer doesn't pay maternity leave, and disability isn't an option unless there's a problem with the pregnancy. Normally George drops Izzy off when Kris has to be at work at 8:00 am, but he has a guy on light duty and has been covering his shift. This means longer hours for George, and longer hours for Grammy. Thank Goodness that Izzy is a really good girl, and has started taking an afternoon nap again. These hours have limited my sewing time, but I've really accomplished a lot this past week. The baby's quilt top is finished and ready to be quilted. The log cabin quilts for Bridgett's twin girls (who arrived early in October) are ready to be quilted. And when I got Mary's Toy Story quilt out to start working on it again, I was thrilled to discover that 8 blocks are ready to be stitched, 3 are traced onto fusible, and only one block needs to be traced. Not bad.
The quilts aren't quilted yet because I need to give them a good ironing, and for some reason, my lovely iron isn't heating. I found the cord laying on the floor (I always wrap it up and put it on the buffet), and have a feeling that somehow, someone knocked the iron onto the floor and won't admit it. So, I have to go and buy a new iron before I can finish these quilts. Rod said he would check it out, but as of yet "hasn't gotten around to it". I noticed in my Joann ad that they have irons on sale right now, so hopefully I can find a nice one either tonight or tomorrow. And then I will again be busy, busy, busy. Hope you've accomplished a lot too.
