Self Pity Train is gone but I'm still at the station....

Really feeling grateful today. Last night I was feeling so much better that I quit using my cane. Guess I was getting too cocky cause I slipped and fell. Hurt my good knee and good wrist. Today my knee is better and the wrist is just sore. I am SO GRATEFUL that I didn't break anything! Thank you God! Before my "fall from grace", I actually stitched up Block Two from the Civil War Sampler.

This quilt book is so interesting. Each block has a story and picture from the Civil War. The book has instructions for both the 8" block and the 12" block. I'm doing the 12" blocks. The name of this block is: Star of the West. I know lots of people are making this from Civil War fabrics but I'm just using my all-time current favorite colors. Here's the book:
 
I'm just starting from Block One and working through. I'm still way behind on writing my copy assignments. I just took off a few minutes last night to sew up this block and then was going to do more work but then, BAM, I'm on the kitchen floor. Seriously, I was praying that I could get up. Didn't have my phone with me and it could have been bad. Now I'm taking my phone wherever I go.

I'm going to get to work before something else happens. What are you guys working on today? Oh, don't forget to enter the giveaway for Halloween fabrics! XO and Cheery Wave from Bev

Am I going to have to come over there and take care of you? LOL Please be careful. You don't need anymore injuries.

Take it slow and easy - I know, that's hard to do.
