I have been sick as a dog for the last week. Apparently, I have pleurisy. I thought that was a disease from the “olden days”. Oh no, its still hanging around. Basically, the membrane around my lungs got swollen and I couldn’t breathe very well, and when I would cough, it felt like I was being stabbed with a knife. Very painful. I’m feeling a lot better today: I can breather normally, and no more stabbing pain. Thank the lord for modern medicine! In my last post I mentioned that I was *almost* done piecing Wyatt’s zig zag quilt top. Well, I’m back with photos!!
This is the best ‘full’ shot I could get…the sunlight was streaming in the window, which made for a very odd lighting. I’m going to back it with minkee, so that it will be a nice cuddly blankie for my baby.
He’s pretty excited for me to finish it! Hopefully I’ll be able to go to my local quilt shop this weekend to pick up the batting…
In other news, its almost my birthday! Woot!! I asked for a Kindle…I’m hoping I get one! I made a case for it (*wink*), but I wasn’t able to use the original fabric I had picked out, because the grid was not printed straight AT ALL. So frustrating! But I think I’m going to try using it on the diagonal. Anyhoo, I made this one:
I used one of my all-time favorite Japanese prints. I’m giving it to my mom, because she loves it. I think the next time I make one, I will trim the batting 1/4″ around all sides to decrease bulk, and make the accent fabric strip narrower.
Well, I’m off. Wilbur needs to be picked up from the doggy groomer, and then I’m off to pick up my mommy from the airport! Yay!
