{Once Upon a Weekend #47 Link Party} and Features

 It's finally Friday! Did you have a good week? We've had an interesting twist for the start of our summer. My 6 year old daughter broke her am (in half) on Sunday. I'm still a little bit devastated... she'll have a cast for 6-8 weeks, and it can't get wet. So that means no swimming, what are we going to do? What a way to start the summer! But she's been so brave, and we're determined to have a great summer anyway. Oh, and did I mention I broke my rib? Yeah.... it hurts like crazy (slippin' slide injury made worse by a trampoline injury).

Check out my Father's Day gift idea and printables-

And here are my tutorials for two fun belts.

Pinspired and Rewired-
Come link up any project involving fabric... the prizes from Fashionable Fabrics are awesome!

For those of you following along, you probably saw my note that I am a little behind due to all our injuries. I am still working on my quilt top, and I hope to have it posted very soon. Plan for this weekend. I can't tell you how awful I feel, I am so sorry!

  1. Y'all be careful over there! Oh my goodness! Hope you feel better soon! :)

  2. What a tough week! Sounds like your daughter's not the only brave one! Hang in there.

  3. Crazy girl...poor baby and her poor mommy! Sounds like it's going to be a summer full of movies!! Thanks for hosting tonight! XO, Aimee

  4. Ouch! Broken arm's suck!
    Thanks for featuring me! You're so sweet! :)

  5. Oh, no! Hope you girls get better soon, and thank you for hosting :)

  6. Ooh, rough! Little kids are so crazy. My little brother, who also happens to be six, fell out of our cherry tree and broke his arm a couple weeks ago. We've had the hardest time trying to get him to stay off of his bike, to not play rough, and to actually keep his cast on. For the getting wet thing, though, we've been slipping a bread bag over his cast and securing it with a rubberband. It works great! :)

    Thanks for the linky party! And here's to a smoother next week! :)
