I saw the ENT this week and am now taking some meds and doing some vestibular exercises for the vertigo. Things have improved quite a bit, not quite normal but definitely a WHOLE lot better-and improving each day. I am one happy gal! I celebrated by indulging in some retail therapy while taking advantage of the Labor Day sale at one of my favorite LQS.
Now, I didn't do the no-buy challenge in August as 95% of the large pieces in my stash are pre-destined for backings of specific UFOs, the rest of my stash are FQs which occupy one set of those plastic drawers. Seemed like a large stash to me, but would probably fill less than two or three shelves all together. Doing Judy's 1 hour a day challenge revealed a sizeable fault with my stash-no background fabrics. Since Judy is going to give us another challenge in October, I figured I'd get some backgrounds and be prepared. If I have the backgrounds, I can use up the FQs and diminish the stash, right? Sounds logical to me!
Secondly, I have a challenge quilt to make for my guild, so I needed a main fabric/background fabric for it. I found something I hope will work for that.
Then, my son has requested a blue and white quilt, so I have been playing with different designs in EQ (and scouring Bonnie's site)trying to figure out something simple, quick, masculine that would work well in 2 colors. Thought I would pick up something specifically for that, but didn't see anything that screamed, "buy me, I'm perfect for Jim's quilt", so I didn't.
I guess this group is wearing off on me. I saw a number of beautiful fabrics that I would love to have, just to look at and enjoy-like artwork or chocolate. But, I didn't have a designated project for them, so I passed. .....maybe I'm still sick??? I saw some that might have worked for some projects still in planning, but this voice in my head kept saying, "there will be something suitable when you are ready, you don't have to store and hoard." Yep-hearing voices, definitely still sick.
Now I'm eager to finish the borders on the JudyL 1 hr challenge, finally. I have been procrastinating on that, not sure why. Once that is done, I will divide my time between the guild challenge quilt and finishing the quilting on the TT which is on the frame. There's lots more that I would like to do in September, but that is all I'm ready to 'commit to' right now.
