Last Monday was my birthday. I woke up with a sore throat and by evening it had developed into a full-blown cold/flu. I was in bed for two days and now, a week later, am still not feeling 100%. But the show must go on...things to do, people to see, places to visit. I think I'm finally caught up with gift-buying, holiday cards, laundry. Got my hair cut today and that's always good for a lift!
I'm feeling a bit aimless, quiltwise, since I was on deadline for our recent show, and now that it's over...well, I have to start something new! I have resurrected one machine-piecing UFO and I also found a needlepoint pillow that has been lying dormant for one year? two years? I am thinking about a new hand-piecing project and am considering "tumbling blocks," a pattern I have never made.
The photo is from the Quilt Show in Chicago I attended in April. I don't remember if it is new or old but I thought it looked festive for this time of year.
