Tuesday update

Thanks for all the well wishes you've sent - cyber friends are the best! I'm home for the second day in a row, but feeling just a little better I think. Yesterday I spent most of the day sleeping but today I've been awake quite a bit - I think that sounds like I'm better.

This morning I got dressed and went to work just long enough for my boss to give me my annual review. She took one look at me and asked why in the world I was there instead of home in bed. Well, since Thursday is her last day before retirement I told her I figured we'd better get this done as scheduled. By 9:00 I was back home, back in pajamas and back in bed but couldn't go to sleep. So I thought I'd try sewing as I couldn't seem to focus on the computer screen enough to read blogs.

I'm doing OK for now. I finished my 2006 Jan Patek Mystery top. The pattern is called "Posies and Points". It's now crossed off the UFT list and added to the Flimsies list. I really like how it turned out. I also think it's almost time for me to lie down and take a nap now that I've finished that project.

I did a little sidebar reorganization while I was doing the updating. It felt like I was just treading water every time I listed a new string quilt to replace the one I just finished. I didn't like that feeling at all, so I came up with a new category - "Ongoing Scrap-busting Stuff". That way I can keep track of things I'm doing to clear out the scrap bins but I won't count them as UFO's. Seems fair to me!

Your mystery quilt is great - I just love Jan's stuff. Don't overdo . . . you're supposed to be resting so you can be back at full speed *s*

I've got a quilt rack at my house that needs this quilt. I just love it. From the pattern to the colors. It looks like a summer nap to me...You should be real proud...

I luv your Posies and Points. Those colors are right up my alley. It also gives me some ideas for setting different size blocks together.
