Things Don't Always Go As Expected

Some of you have already heard about this through the grapevine, but for everyone else... After a routine ultrasound on Wednesday May 9th, I was admitted to the hospital for preterm labor. I'm not a candidate for a cerclage because I'm too far along with the twins, so the only treatment the doctors can offer is hospital bed rest, daily doses of progesterone, and monitoring. So far I've been pretty stable, but if my symptoms escalate to labor contractions there is medicine they can give me to stop them. Next week they will give me steroids to help the boys' lungs grow. We are praying every day that the boys continue to stay safe inside me. Every day I can give them is a fighting chance for their survival. They are still too young to survive on their own. We are pretty scared but our faith is with God. Send a thought our way or say a prayer for us if you can. We need them! For now I'm going to take a blogging break but if there are any major updates I will make a post. Happy quilting and thanks in advance!

More Pants for my Boys

My wonderful mother in law finished up another couple of pairs for the boys last night. This set is my husband's favorite so far! I love how one side is a bit more playful and one side is a bit more subtle.
I'm in my sewing room today whipping up some quilt blocks for the boys. More pics to come but these are from yesterday:

Please excuse the poor quality phone photo...

Happy Quilting!
