I have been so sick with either the flu or a very bad cold for the past week. I slept a lot, tried to drink a lot of water, and slept more. The only good thing about not working and being sick is that I have been on the same tank of gas for almost three weeks! :)
Since I wasn't quite so shaky this morning when I got up, I decided to get Red Letter Day off my sewing table. I just had to sew the last three blocks together and then sew the last row on the top. I almost gave up about halfway through, but a bowl of Corn Flakes and a glass of orange juice fortified me and I kept going.
I really like Thimble Blossom patterns. They're well written and easy to follow. That said, I didn't like so much these 22.5" blocks. Maybe I'm just used to working on smaller blocks, but I found them cumbersome to handle. It's probably just me. I have a couple of other quilts in the works with big blocks and I found the same thing on those. But the quilt is amazing, especially in all of the wonderful fabrics I've seen on blogs and on Instagram. I'd say Camille struck a home run with this one!
My house is in such a state of upheaval. I've started packing up some stuff, and realized it's maybe a little too early to start doing that. I have paths through the downstairs between boxes and tubs. There are things I wanted to pack and then leave the rest to the packers/moving company. My very quiet life is upset right now and being sick didn't help at all. Hopefully, though, I'm on the road to recovery and things will settle down here.
Penny is sitting over there staring at me. I've neglected her so badly this past week or so. Poor baby! I need to spend some quality time with her today because she's just as upset as I am with all of the changes going on around here.
