I started my day digging through what I haven't packed away of my stash and couldn't find any fabric to use for my Butterfly Garden quilt instead of the purples and greens I had chosen (see photo below). I just feel as though these fabrics will make the quilt too dark and the stitching won't show. I came to the realization that I don't have enough light color fabrics and definitely not a floral focus fabric. So that means I'll have to go shopping this week. Too bad!
DH woke up with the flu this morning and spent the day on the couch under two quilts. I know DH is sick when he is using quilts and has only been off the couch to visit the bathroom a few times. I didn't want to disrupt him with the sound of the sewing machine so I spent the afternoon working on my G block from Bobby Socks. I started stitching this block way back in August and haven't touched it in a long time. It felt good to spend a couple hours on it.
Tonight I wanted to do something different so I pulled out a purple ripple afghan I started crocheting about fours years ago. I only lasted 15 minutes before my arms started hurting. Ouch! So I reluctantly put the crocheting away. I guess my crocheting life is over.
Linda asked me why I covet the baby changing table in the new condo. She's wondering if I want the baby to go with the table. Good question, but not the right answer. My baby days are way over and grandbabies are still a few years away. I want the table because it's the perfect height for a cutting/pressing table, plus it is really more of a cabinet as it has several drawers with tons of space for storage. It would make a great quilting studio piece of furniture.
Well, it's getting late and tomorrow is Monday. So I'm off to take a steamy shower and climb under the covers. DH seems to be doing better tonight as he ate dinner and has kept it down. That's the first meal of the day for him. Hooray!
