The one thing one week challenge Disaster!!

I have nothing completed for the first week of the one thing one week challenge I spent tuesday at the Dr's with my 4 year old daughter Alice,she's been hot grumpy,irratable complaining of tummy ache,a head ache and feeling sick,the Dr looked for every possible explanation and found nothing wrong is he said she must just be under the weather.
And don't I know I can only say she has been very demanding and grouchy.And that is my reason for lack of production this week,Hopefully the weekend will bring about some sewing time and Alice's recovery.
For now I shall just post a picutre of my 3 darlings from last week.

Friday night sew-in not much sewing to report!

Well I didn't really do any sewing at all,I finished all 4 sampler blocks yesterday and then spent my evening sorting out my box of buttons into jars so I suppose that really doesn't count and then I felt in the mood to crochet some lovely bright beautiful flowers for embellishing some of my crafts,one of which is a ufo knitted cushion cover. . . . . . . .watch this space for that one!
Thank you Bobbi and Heidi for another great FNSI.

Sampler quilt along blocks for week 3 finished

Today while it was really hot I decided to move the sewing machine outside on to the patio and do some quilting I had quite a productive day,first of all last week I realised I'd made one of the blocks wrong so I set about correcting that and then I set about making the other 2 blocks for this week as monday seems to have come around quite quickly this week so I thought I should pull my finger out before I fall behind.And here's how I got on.
The top block is the one that I made an error on and have now corrected.
