You will notice I have a new photo in my header. This is my first Fat 8 Challenge project. It is a wall hanging based on the Plain Spoken pattern from The Modern Quilt Workshop book. The project in the book calls for 54 blocks, but I only used 48. I have ordered a book on beading on fabric and I think I'm going to do some beading on the quilt before I finish it. I've named it Crown Jewels.
I am so thrilled with how it looks. I think it is the WOW project for our dining room. I had mentioned to DH the other day I wanted to make several wall hangings instead of finding one WOW item. That way we could change the wall hangings depending on our mood. He was lukewarm to the idea. Once he sees this quilt he may change his mind.
Today was not a good day. I had an email from the office to work on a project. Then I couldn't concentrate on anything in my studio. Then when I went down to change the laundry I noticed the hot water was leaking so I had to call the plumber. While the plumber was here the human resources manager called me and said I need to get a letter from my doctor about my medical leave and when will I be able to return to work. Just to top it all off, DH called and asked me to do a special work project for him. At that point I was having an anxiety/panic attack and was feeling miserable.
What's a girl to do when she stressed? Well, make one of these:
In that bowl is Ice Cream Sandwich Ice Cream, Hershey's chocolate sauce, half of a sliced banana, fresh walnuts and fresh whipped cream. It was super, duper yummy!
The only good part of the day (at least so far) is I did get the bathrooms cleaned, the stairs vacuumed and the laundry done. I hope your day was better than my day.
