Seriously, this bout of illness is the gift that keeps on giving. Just when I thought I was over the hump, my throat closed up and the aches came on full force. Despite getting my flu shot, I most definitely have the flu. Being sick with a baby to mind is no fun at all. Especially when said baby is also ill.
Okay, that's enough pity party for today. This afternoon, between naps and cuddles with Levi, I cut the pieces for Fireflies which is the sixth block for the Sew Happy Quilt. [Oh crap! I just hit publish instead of the photo icon! I really am out of it! Quick! Revert to draft!!!]
Yesterday, prior to coming down with the plague, I spent two and a half hours sewing at The Workroom. Levi was sick and I didn't want our babysitter to take him out of the apartment. I also didn't want to give up my precious sewing time so to The Workroom to I went to sew by the hour! I worked on my Wonky Log Cabin placemats. I only managed to quilt one and half of another. I used painters tape and masking tape to lay out my quilting guide lines and it took a lot longer than I anticipated. I stitched on either side of the painters tape and used a strip of masking tape for the spacing. I chose a coral/salmon pink thread for the quilting.
I also picked up some fat quarters. Remember last week when I mentioned that I loved a particular Central Park design and that I should grab more before it sold out? I was too late. There was only one FQ left. Fearing that the hunter green Jewels print from Outfoxed would soon go the way of the dodo bird, I bought a half metre.
And now, back to bed for me!
