Yes, I had the flu. I will be getting a flu shot next year. I had not been that sick in about 10 years. My chest still sounds icky but I am feeling so much better. The worst thing is that it is so draining. I actually have been feeling like an old lady!
I have lots of projects lined up for this weekend. I have purchased several yards of a variety of different scarf fabrics. I love making infinity scarves. They go together quickly, look beautiful and are big sellers. I managed to do the first set of piecing on my new Christmas quilt and I would like very much to go from HSTs to hour glass blocks this weekend. I think that if I don't bite off too much at one time I will not get bored and distracted. (Then again, perhaps not.) My son and daughter-in-law bought me a 10" compound miter saw for Christmas. I am really anxious to build a workbench in my basement so that I can start cutting wood for a wall of board and batten! I wonder how much I can actually cram into one weekend?
Big news in my corner of the world...
just bought the inventory of a quilt shop that closed. Every piece of fabric is $3.99 a yard! I had to stop in just to look. I really didn't need any fabric. You know how that goes...I bought about 11 yards. I was tempted by the batiks but didn't buy any today. I picked up some Moda, a little Henry Glass, some Free Spirit and a smidgen of Riley Blake fabrics. The special quilting fabric cannot be purchased on line but if you are anywhere near Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania - stop in!
