Snowman Country continues
Here are a few more of the blocks from "Snowman Country" that I have been working on during my son's recovery.
Thanks to everyone who sent good thoughts and kind words. His surgery went well and he is progressing nicely. This surgery involved bone grafting and moving more teeth. His jaw was crushed in a car accident 2 years ago and he has is still missing his 4 upper front teeth. Doctors are working on improving his bite and preparing him for implants, hopefully in a few months.
Another holiday of soft foods and lots of cooking for me to keep his weight up. It is very difficult for him to eat, nothing that needs to be bitten into and with a poor bite, lots of easy chew foods. I've become a creative cook, using lots of ground meats, mashed potatoes and pasta, soups and stews and these trips keep me pretty busy. But I've still had plenty of time for some hand sewing and I am happy with how this little snowman quilt is turning out.
Sorry that these 2 photos are sideways, not sure why or how to fix them but you get the idea.
Hope to be heading home tomorrow and to have this put together soon. I really enjoy working on Bunnyhill patterns, so easy and fun and a change from my more "serious" work and during this busy holiday season its good to have something relaxing at my fingertips.
