Yesterday I kept Liam home sick. I hated to call in to work since it’s only my second week, and he probably technically could have gone to daycare because his temperature was low-grade, but his breathing has been very labored, wheezy, & crackly, he is coughing a lot, and not eating much. My mama gut told me he needed me to hold him so that’s what I did. I didn’t take him to the doctor because I’m pretty sure he has bronchiolitis (usually caused by RSV), which Meredith had around this same age and there isn’t anything they can do for it. Anyway, today my lovely mother-in-law is watching him for me so I can get back to work and hopefully they come to realize that I really am very dependable!
So yesterday while I was home and holding my baby I did a lot of stitching and made some progress on this winter sampler!
I love it. Did I mention it’s my first time stitching on linen and using hand-dyed floss? Loving both. I mostly stitched yesterday since I can do that with a baby in my lap, but I did manage to finish another row on my quilt. Now I have ten! Four more to go!
Let’s be honest though, this is my real work in progress:
I’ve still got a few kinks to work out, but I think he’s coming along nicely, don’t you? :)
