FEELING BETTER

After about three weeks on illness with no energy, I am finally on the mend.  Yippee.  I am so over not sewing.

I remember when I started to put together the first block on the caswell quilt, I used the glue technique. I must have been terribly tired.  I used so much glue when I tried to wash out the glue today, it would not soak out.  So I started over.  I feel better now and there are only little dots of glue on the material.  Looks nicer and I am much happier with the block.

Auditioning material for this block.

This center looks better in the picture than it does in real life.

Does not do it for me either.

The Ear

The last couple of weeks have been a right off for me.  I have had the flu.  Yuck.

Nothing worse than an ear ache.  No motivation when the ear hurts. Cannot

concentrate on anything.  Antibiotics are taken regularly.  Going back to the

doctor Tuesday. He might change my medicine.

I am apologizing to everyone who left a comment on my last post.  I am just now

able to read them.  I will be responding to them tonight.

My sewing has almost been nil. I did manage to add a couple of hexies, but not

many.

Hope you sewing has been fun.

BABYSITTING

 

Babysitting has taken up my time for the past couple of weeks.

When not babysitting, time was recovering from babysitting.

Being 65 and taking care of a 10 month old is a lot of work.  I enjoyed it but it was tiring.

A  few Dutch Treat blocks were sewn.DSCN2360

I am not enjoying them the way thought I would.  So for a while they are being put away.

Today I feel like working on The Caswell Quilt.

It will be on my sewing table as soon as this post is finished.

Block A-1.   My block will be similar but not exact.   I enjoy changing blocks to make it my own.

But that is for next time.

Happy Sewing,
