A Quickie Post with Cute Pumpkins


What a week it has been.  Getting back in the groove at work, and dealing with a 17 year old who came down with a severe outbreak of hives.  I’m talking head to toe hives.  This started Monday evening.  Tuesday I tried to get him into the doctor, but they were booked.  Ended up in the ER with him Tuesday night, only to find out I was already doing pretty much everything that could be done.  They did give him some stronger antihistamine and a shot of steroid.  Today has been the best one since, they were pretty much nonexistant til about 6:00 and a few popped back up.  It’s a weird thing.  I mean he was completely covered in them.  I tried to get him to let me take a pic of his back for my blog, but that got an emphatic “no!” LOL.  We have no idea at all what caused them.  Very frustrating and unsettling.  Many thanks to Jan for giving me advice and moral support!

Between that and a stressful week at work, especially yesterday, I haven’t taken a single stitch til today.  I got off work at noon, and got to work on this adorable pumpkin table runner for my friend, Betty.  I bought the same kit, only mine is still in the bag.  At least I will know how to quilt it when I get it put together. 🙂
