Catching Up

It's been a while since I've posted. Let me see-----where to start.

As I said I had started feeling better from the viral infection, but then I couldn't hear out of my left ear. I went back to the doctor's and found out I had fluid behind the eardrum. It took another week to clear that up and for my voice to return to normal. Whew!!!! Glad that's done.

In the meantime I completed 4 client quilts and picked up another commission quilt. I may have mentioned it earlier. It's to be a double sided quilt. That makes 4 commissioned quilts to do. I LOVE being busy!!!!

The first week of next month I will be leaving for Oregon. I will be taking a  class from Ray White on Machine Maintenance. It will be 6 days of Basic and Advanced classes. I can't wait. With all the machines I've been accumulating I need this. Sure saves on $$$$$$ by not having to take them in to be serviced.

Now for a few pics. I will be hooking up with Slow Stitching Sunday. Check out what everyone's doing.

First up, I sat here this morning watching Lord of the Ring and stitching the binding on this quilt that will go to my Dr's office.

It's even received it's CAT scan and deemed ready to go.

Next I'm working on my snowflake hexies. Trying to get some sewn together (I have a little over 40 made) to see how many more I need to build it to a usable size.

I also just had to make up one of these to see how I like it. This is another EPP that I will be working on. It Patchwork of the Crosses. I just fell in love with this pattern and have to do it. I like this first block, but I think I'm going to do the rest in brighter colors. I have chosen a WOW for the background and a turquoise for the connecting blocks (I guess that's what you call the little squares that form the separations between blocks).

Anyway---this is how I'm spending my Sunday.

One last pic of another quilt I finished this week that will be going to a friend that is helping DH build his "rat rod". (I am also doing one for his wife that will be finished this week.)

Well, that catches me up to today.
Hope your Sunday is filled with stitching of some sort.

Til later,
Hugs & Stitches,
