You never know when you are going to need a nice warm quilt...

This morning we had an unscheduled visit to the hospital in the ambulance. I grabbed this bright quilt as we were going out the door. It's perfect because of the size, also it's got wool batting so just right for someone who might run a temperature, and it's bright and cheerful which is just what you need in the hospital. We're home now resting (both patient and mummy lol).
I've been meaning to show these. I got up early on Sunday morning and got in an hour sewing before breakfast.
I made 8 more of these strings blocks. They are so quick and easy to do and I'm really in love with this orange/aqua combination. Isn't is bright and cheerful? some times we just need bright and cheerful don't we!
Now that my patient is lying on the sofa, I wonder if I could make a flying geese block?

  14. Poor Roo! And poor mom, too! I'm glad to hear he's home, but what an awful scare. Did he at least enjoy his ride in the ambulance?
