Quilt Square 38

Whew, it's been a busy couple of days! I went to watch my husband play in his company's sports tournament Thursday night. Within three minutes of his soccer game, he and another player tripped over one another, and he managed to twist his ankle. It didn't look so bad, so he kept playing (and his team actually won the basketball tournament). We came home, put some medicine on it, and wrapped it up.

But the next morning it had swollen to the size of a tennis ball and was seriously bruised. I took him to the hospital just to make sure it wasn't broken or fractured. An x-ray later, we found out it was thankfully just a sprain. My DH was actually more upset that he wasn't going to be able to play sports for at least two weeks. Ah, men... You have to love their priorities!

I managed to get some more stitching done on the American Flag Quilt.

This is Nevada, the Silver State. This is the 36th state, admitted on the October 31, 1864.

Just wanted to thank you guys too for your sweet, sweet comments about this WIP. You're all so encouraging, and it really keeps me motivated. Big hugs for everyone!

Keep on stitchin',

Men are quite funny when it comes to priorities!! I hope his ankle is healing and that he isn't putting too much strain on it. American quilt is really coming along :D
