So I've been MIA for a week. What are the odds of getting the flu even though you have had a flu shot? Something like 50%? I don't know but I did get it anyway. I want my money back!
One of my latest projects that "jumped" in line is this quilt that is SSSOOO out of my box. The Married One volunteered me to make it. The baby is due November 22 so I HAD to finish it. I wouldn't let myself work on anything else quilty or crafty until it was done. What a struggle! Why is it so hard to make myself sit down and work on something I really don't like? I guess we have all been there.
Regardless of how I feel about it, the mother-to-be absolutely loved it. I have washed it once so it should be good to go for the new baby. It really went together quite easily.
Last week before I got sick, I had two big things to do. First was finish the above quilt by Saturday because Saturday was The Married One's big 30th birthday party. The mom-to-be was at the party and I wanted to get it to her (and out of my house). Son-in-law was handling the party himself. I felt kind of sorry for him. He was so out of his element! So along with finishing the quilt, I did all the decorations for the party and all the desserts and a couple of side dishes.
Here is a picture of The Married One 30 years ago last week. What a sweet, little girl she was (is)!
Now that I am amongst the living again, I plan on catching up with blogging and quilting. I have so much to finish and share!
