I have eight more string blocks to make. Then I can start assembling the rows. I love making these things.
There are so many things I should be doing, but I'm staying close to Daisy. She's not eating, and her stomach has been upset since yesterday afternoon. She is drinking some water, though. I'm heading to the market in a bit to pick up some baby food to try. Maybe something sweet will stimulate her appetite. I called Jane last night about the vomiting. Her nurse daughter was there, and she thinks it's the antibiotics that have her stomach upset. I think I'm going to pick up some Pedialyte and see if she'll drink some of that. It wasn't fun sticking those pills down her throat last night. No food items with which I tried to entice her were working. Breaks my heart. But she is breathing easily and wagged her tail at me a time or two this morning. Some progress.
On the sewing front, I'm on overload. I have that stack of tops next to my sewing machine. Most just need backings pieced and some need final borders. I need to dive in and just do it, but I'm just not motivated right now. One is a present so I need to at least get that one done and off to the local quilter. Maybe doing one will spur me along on the others.
I need to get some blocks made for the Block Lottery contest at The Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber blog. With all the fabric I've purchased from them through the years, I can't make up my mind which ones to use! That's sick, isn't it?! Hope to pull fabric today, and then decide on a block. What a fun time the winners will have assembling the blocks into a quilt or quilts!
Oh, Bonnie Hunter's book came yesterday, Scraps and Shirttails! It's a great book. I read it from cover to cover last night, and now I'm motivated to pull out the scraps. If I can get to them behind all the stacks of yardage! Congrats, Bonnie, on a fantastic book!
Today my world seems a little more "level." Perhaps a long nap yesterday and a good night's sleep last night was all I needed. Now if Daisy would just eat something.
