Today is Leap Day 2012. What are you doing today and going to remember in the years to come? I'm going to remember I was home with a horrible head cold! Real memorable, huh? Oh well, what can I say? I hope you are having a better day.
I hate colds...they make you feel so lousy and all I want to do is just lay around and blow my nose. Ugh! I didn't go to work yesterday and I just laid around most of the day. I did get up for awhile and updated my other blog, the Sew What's. Look on the right hand side of the blog and see what my small quilt group is up to...We have some amazing quilters in this group! Anyway, that's all I did yesterday. No sewing and no tatting. I missed Tatting Tuesday and we were going to decorate shuttles! Boo hoo, I really wanted to do this but the girls said they would do it again so I'll be doing that shortly. I am not feeling any better today so I stayed home again. I didn't want to waste the whole day so I did pull out my Thimbleberries book and look to see what pattern I wanted to do. I went upstairs and cut out some fabric and sewed 6 blocks together. I'm taking a lunch break now and going to take more pills...I'm not sure if I'll sew more or just lay down after lunch so this is what I did this morning.
I pulled out this book that I have had for many years. I have always wanted to make several things out of it and just never have. I enjoy looking at it but sometimes looking and drooling just isn't enough! So, I decided today was the day I was going to do one of the patterns I've been wanting to do. This one is called Paddlewheels and Pinwheels. I pulled some muted fabrics out of my stash and 6 different background colors and started cutting. I sewed these together to see how easy it was and if I really liked it. Well, yes, they are easy and yes, I do like them, so I will continue with this project! But, for now, I'm going to eat and watch a little TV...Hopefully, I'll show you more later.
These really aren't as ugly as they look. They are just muted colors and will brighten up when I put other things with them....
