Well, the weekend started off good. On Friday Estelle, Kim and I made our annual trek to the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival. We are so fortunate to have a good quilt show so close to home. I was good and only bought a few stencils and a knit hoodie jacket. I didn't buy anything that requires me to start a new project and that's a very good thing!
Mom and I are going to AQS Lancaster in a couple of weeks and I'll see if I can be as controlled.
The weekend went a little pear-shaped after that. Chris got up about 1:00 Saturday morning sick. Really, really, really sick. Fortunately he made it to the bathroom but not all the way in. I spent the next 3 hours cleaning up while he continued being sick. I felt so bad for him and, for once, was grateful for my loss of sense of smell. I can't smell good things but I can't smell bad things either! We are pretty sure it was food poisoning. He has never been that sick before. Saturday was all about keeping him hydrated - I wasn't signing up to spend 4 or 5 hours in the emergency room just to get fluids if we could avoid it. He's finally starting to eat some today. Needless to say, there wasn't much creating going on this weekend. I did eventually get 50 yards of fabric ironed, packed and shipped but that's about it.
Today's a new week though so I'll be starting on some of the projects that I talked about Friday. Plus one more.
The Country School Quilters is having a fabric challenge and the quilts need to be done for our show in September. We were given the 2 fabrics in the upper left: the blue batik and the light blue print. I have a few ideas rolling around and one involves combining some of these sunprints. I think that light blue might need some surface treatments. I already know the size because I have a need for something to cover the electric service box in the guest house. Now I will ponder for a while to see what I can put together.
Now I need to get out of weekend nurse mode and into create mode (it will be an easy transition). Check out what everyone else is doing at Patchwork Times.
