Murphy's Law

I've been so lazy this last week and wouldn't you know that it's caught up with me.

I woke up tuesday with some pain in my chest. I don't know how you feel about it, but I think bronchitis is the worse pain ever! Way worse than childbirth!
So I started with some expectorant and lots and lots of hot scalding tea.

Today it's is my head. Much better except I sound terrible.

Yesterday I decided to do something, instead of curling up with a book. I cut out a million more squares for my cousins wedding quilt.

I had begged some scraps off my quilting buddies and finally got around to cutting them out.

Have I mentioned that this will be a scrappy quilt?

With my own scraps I had enough to complete about a third of the quilt. Then I ran out. Thank goodness I have quilty friends! They really answered a need.

So what do you think of my partial layout?

It's coming along. If I can keep up, I should be finished with this in the fall.

Of course now that I don't feel 100 percent, I want to do more. I really do want to sit at my machine and quilt. I really do want to sew 100 more 9-patches.
I really don't want to do housework. I'm too tired for that!

Wishing you all a wonderful germ free day!
Take care, Brandie

Your quilt is beautiful. I certainly understand being sick and wanting to sew but not feeling well enough. Speedy and complete recovery to you.

Those blues are luxurious. I was at a rock shop today and looked at some gorgeous pieces of lapis lazuli. Your blue scraps remind me a lot of those stones, deep and rich. Nice colors!
