On the mend...

Slowly, but surely, I am on the mend. Thank you for sending your encouraging thoughts and well wishes my way. It has taken me quite a while to get my energy back after this virus and every extra moment that in the past I would have spent sewing, I have been forced to spend resting. How boring!!! I even missed my guild meeting this week because I just did not have the extra energy to go out. Unfortunately this health issue has required me to take stock of how much time I have left and forced me to readjust my goals of what is possible to finish in time for Christmas.
But the good news is that I am feeling better in time to at least get some shopping, baking and quilting done in time for Christmas and I am very happy about that.
I have been putting some little pieces through my machine, just so I don't forget how! I am working like a turtle on these quilt blocks. Here are some examples of the wrong way to sew a block and I sew at least one or two of these every time I sit at the machine! Here are the 2 that I will be unsewing tonight! I need to smarten up and sew 30 of the 12" blocks....the right way of course!

  3. Glad you are feeling better. I went through this a few weeks ago and it was no fun to do nothing. Of course I slept most of the time!
