On Ringo Lake Update

Yesterday was the link up for the quilters who are making the Quiltville mystery. I'm sure some superstar quilters will have their quilt top finished already, but most of us are in some stage of quilt block construction. 
I've only made 4 blocks so far. 
Ugh.
I'm entering the 4th day of laying in bed, with my fevered red cheeks, my aching bones, hacking up my lungs, and getting more frustrated with my lack of recovery with each passing moment. I am not a good patient and detest being sick/unable to quilt.

Here is a photo of the "parts department" where all the bits and pieces of my version of the mystery are in various stages of readiness, just waiting for me to be to able to sit upright pain-free and get  sewing. All the gold sashing pieces on the right are ready to go because they were from step #3 early on in the mystery (before Christmas). But many of the later steps aren't fully completed yet.  
Hop over to the Quiltville mystery link up to see all the wonderful quilts that the non-sick quilters are making!

  3. I had 5 days of fever, 3 days of sweating after the fever, tummy upset, then absolute fatigue and wanting to do nothing - a total of over 21 days.
    I feel for you! Like your blocks.

  6. I've heard this flu is really serious this year, so I hope you're taking good care of yourself. Consider seeing a doctor if it gets worse, please! Thinking of you and wishing you well.

  7. This sickness seems to be every where - I do hope things improve soom for you. Getting better is a better goal than completing blocks - they will be there when you are able.

  8. Hearing about all the sick people makes me want to not even leave the house. This was made easier last week when we had sub-zero temps, but I do need to go to the grocery store later today. And tomorrow or Thursday it's supposed to hit 50°.
    Rest up and get well. Hope you have some good books to read. And then there's all those quilting blogs with even more project ideas.

  10. You're so organized! I used plastic bags to keep my pieces separated. Not very neat! Love your colors! It's so fun to see how everyone's colors are different and how the quilt looks. Hope you feel better! The flu is very nasty this year. Take care of yourself!

  11. I feel for you! I had the hacking cough through Christmas last year. Funny that I am still stitching those Part 3 units, too. Need about 15-20 more sets. Sewing the corner today.
    Feel better soon. I'm surprised you can still Blog and comment.

  12. Rest and recover. Your health is everything. I like what you did with the colours. Looking forward to seeing it all together, when you are better.

  13. Your blocks are pretty! So sorry to hear you've got "That" illness. It sure has gone crazy all over the country. Heather brought it home from the hospital right before Christmas, and her hubby and I both got it after her. Not fun, and it took many days before my belly was OK handling food. I hope your system kicks it more quickly for you! (My hubby fought it for only one day, so there's hope)

  15. I hope that you've seen the doctor. 4 days is several days too long.

  16. Sorry you are not felling well yet. Fire up that kettle and lots of tea with just a splash of rye for medicinal purposes of course! My friend who has 2 grandchildren...calls them petri dishes(little germ carriers) I am guessing you saw many over the holidays! Take Care...your mystery quilt will wait for you...it won't put itself together...trust me, I have waited and nope not happening!!

  17. So sorry you are still sick. My husband has had what you describe and it's taken him a good two weeks to finally get back on his feet. I only have 9 blocks finished. It's a slow process. Hope you start feeling better soon.

  18. I'm so sorry you're feeling under the weather. I hope things improve soon. You certainly have plenty of inspiration when you get back to the sewing machine. I love the colours you are working with for On Ringo Lake.

  21. Hope you get better soon! My favourite quilt shop owner says that "fabric doesn't go bad"--it will be patiently waiting for you when you return to your machine.

  22. So sorry you aren't feeling well. Hope you feel better soon. You're making a lot of great progress, and your colorway is so wonderful that I'm sure this will be a fantastic quilt when it is finished.

  23. So sorry to hear you are still under the weather. It is hard to know when a doctor visit is needed especially for flu symptoms.
    What a lot of effort already put into the quilt along...your assembly line is looking great. Will be awesome.
