Well. I had plans to get stuff done this past week. I had three blog posts to write, and a quilt top to finish. I’d like to say I crossed all that off my list. What I did manage to accomplish was nurse the entire family through a sick weekend. Blech!
The Mister became sick with the flu and that kept him down and feverish for about 6 days (he’s still recovering). My daughter caught the same thing, but thankfully seems to be much better tonight. My son and I both became ill with what seemed to be the beginnings of the flu, but we ended up with head colds. It is a huge understatement to say that I was sending up massive amounts of prayer and good thoughts that I would only be sick with a cold?! There is nothing worse than being sick and having to care for everyone else too. I ended up resting for two hours, doing rounds to see how the kids were doing, give meds and feed people and then go rest so I could do it all over again.
By Sunday I was feeling okay-ish enough to sit at the sewing machine and try to make progress on the Urban Churn Dash blocks. Sadly, I didn’t even enjoy the sewing. I just couldn’t let the whole weekend pass without doing something on this quilt. I’m running out of time… again! (Pretty sure that should be my quilty motto.) I managed to finish four of the blue blocks and got all 5 red blocks almost completely done. I need to only sew one more row onto the blocks and they’re all finished. Hoping to get this top assembled this coming week and would love to get the backing sewn and the whole thing basted. Asking too much? Possibly, if we’re going by the last few months’ progress on quilts.
