I can't believe it is already the 19th of January. Where did the rest of the month go?
I've been sick off and on for the last 2 weeks and Mom was sick before that. She gave it to me. How sweet. I went through about a week of just blowing my nose and groaning and moving from the bed to the recliner to the bed. Then I was determined to be well, so I decided to get up, get dressed and act as if I was well in hopes that my body would take the hint. The first day was not too bad. I made it out to lunch and to the grocery store. Then I was back in the recliner recovering. I kept trying and I'm getting there a little every day. I have an appointment with the doctor tomorrow. Hopefully he'll have the magic cure!
I was at a quilting retreat Monday through Wednesday of this last week. Those women were sure taking their lives in their hands, but they insisted that I should come anyway. We had some great fun and got some work done as well. I have nothing to show and tell, because I didn't really finish anything.
I received a stack of "turnovers" from my secret pal a while back and I decided to get them out of my stash. I made 54 triangle blocks and got them laid out as far as where they will go, but I didn't get them sewn together.
Then I started working on another Bonnie Hunter Pineapple Blossom. I have a whole drawer full of 2 1/2" strips so I spent most of the day sorting them out by color and deciding which would go in my quilt. Then I began cutting the strips to size. I got the first round and the triangles put on one day. The next day, I got the second round on but no triangles. That'll have to be for next time as well.
I guess that next retreat will be really productive for me, since I have most of the groundwork done for 2 quilts now. We have a group that meets each year for Superbowl Weekend. Four days of quilting, laughing, eating and football. Oh boy!
