  1. Well done with all the progress! Cute Yoda hat too ;D
    I’m happy that you are feeling better, and I hope that life will continue to smooth out.
    Take care, and thank you for sharing today.

    1. Thank you! Yes, things are moving in the right direction, emotions are at a calm. I am breathing again. And the sewing will continue as I find more time to do stuff now that I am staying off social media more. LOL! > >

    1. Thanks Nanette, things are definitely better around here. The young couple have decided to postpone the wedding to next year, that gives them time to adjust to a new job for him, the baby for them both and time to breath. I will just continue to sew along! > >

  2. Glad to know you are feeling better Chris. Great progress on all projects, I love the pineapples blocks, they are in my one day to do list. The Baby Yoda hat is so cute.

  3. Beautiful projects Chris! The pineapples caught my eye as I have been turning our pineapple table runners.

  4. Hi Chris! So glad things are going a bit better. A little retail therapy, especially at a quilt shop, is a worthwhile adventure these days. FiGo looks fantastic! That berry colored pineapple look fab next to the yellow one. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thanks Roseanne. They are trying to get a date set for 2021. She is still struggling with morning, noon, and night sickness. 😢 and I will just keep sewng!


  5. So glad things are settling. You certainly have been very busy with your crafting. Everything looks so pretty. Prayers and hugs seny your way.

    1. Thank you! We are coming through it, just need for our girl to get her sea legs back. She is experiencing low blood pressure and severe nausea with her pregnancy. 😢


  6. Glad you are feeling much better and life is starting to line out. Congrats on the pending new addition to the family. I”m way behind on blog reading, so I missed the original post. Hopefully Diva is feeling much better and less nauseous. The baby yoda hat is really cute. Happy stitching this week.
