Vacation on the couch

Some vacation--I spent most of it on the couch! I went to SC last week and met my hubby down there with his motorcycle for Bike Week. I spent the first day with my parents and then took them to the airport early the next day and on my way home, I didn't feel well. And it all went downhill from there. :( Fever, chills, terrible coughing. I did manage to piece a quilt that I started YEARS ago though. Every time I felt a little better, I'd get up and sew for 1/2 hour. Over the course of the week, I finally got it done. At least it was nice weather I could see out the window! LOL

This is called "Morning Glory Moda Stars"..a free pattern from Moda using Robyn Pandolph's Morning Glory line. It was a really easy one to do, just lots of little connector squares (over 500 of them!). It would look really neat using christmas fabrics too.

By the way--this is post # 197--I'm thinking that I should do something special for my 200th Blogiversary (sp?), some type of giveaway...I better think of something soon! Stay tuned!

I just went through that same awful crud. Two weeks of misery. Unlike you, I didn't have any energy or focus for a week and a half. Sure hope you getting to feeling totally well soon. The quilt you did looks nice. I love the warmth of the tans/creams.

Karen, Sorry to hear that you were ill. I guess it's a good thing you had a project to work on a bit. I have been mega busy here and my in-laws are here as Alex and I are going to Vegas this weekend! woohoo...Quiltique here I come! Anyhow, I hope your Memorial Day weekend is better than your vacation.

I have always been enthralled with the Morining Glory series of fabrics. Is there any one out there that has fabric they want to spare, no matter the size. I am especially interested in the aqua/light blue series. Please contact me at patdeziel123@yahoo.com.
