Making up for lost time




I may not have gotten started on time, but I'm starting to catch up. I have gotten a lot cut out, the HSTs are all sewn but need to be pressed and squared. I have cut some fabrics for the medium bordering squares. I have put two blocks together and placed the small squares around them. I am auditioning the mustardy gold for corners on all the blocks. So far, this is what I have. What do you think about those corners? I have also gotten a few rows of quilting done on the Turning Twenty. I even straightened the sewing room before I left it this evening! WOW- I must be sick!!

My daughter-in-law took some time off from work to take me to the doctor and he is concerned that this is the third time this year I am having the same problem-this time without any sign of an ear infection. Also, it is taking much longer to go away. So, to be safe, tomorrow I go for an MRI. We are not expecting anything, but want to eliminate unseen problems being the cause for the vertigo. The up side of this is that I won't be going to work again tomorrow, so I will be able to sew a bit before and after the appointment. That's my silver lining for tomorrow.

This color combo looks wonderful and that gold is perfect!

Sorry to hear about the health problems--hopefully they will come to some conclusion about this soon so proper treatment can begin.

I like the gold in the corners. Gives it a bit of brightness..........

When work interferes with my stitching I remind myself that it is nice to have a job.

I love the colors you're using including the corners.

My Mom had some problems a few years ago with the vertigo thing coming and going - turned out to be an inner ear condition - bothersome but not serious. Hope yours also turns out to be nothing serious.
