So this happened over the weekend...

Well, it's happened again.  My personal odometer rolled over another year with little fanfare over the weekend.  I have an eye infection and may or may not be highly contagious (but I probably am)  so I didn't leave the house all weekend.  But that gave me plenty of time for this!

There are ELEVEN small quilts in this pile to be quilted.    Two are charity quilts for a friend, two more are for another charity that I do some quilting for, and the rest are mine!  Actually three of mine are charity quilts from scraps, and I'll share them in a few days.  Sandwiching and basting are my      absolute least favorite part of quilting.  And HORRORS!!  I ran out of batting, and needed to piece the last one.  I think this calls for a shopping trip!  Tonight and tomorrow are all about the quilting.

Sadly, I'm supposed to be leaving for retreat early Wednesday morning, and I'm probably not going to be able to go.  I have a doctor appointment at 9am, and I'll have to see what he says.  I've already accepted the fact that I probably won't be going, but there isn't anything I can do about it, so I'll just stay home and sew all day!  I have my projects all prepped, so I should be able to get a lot done.  And I'll try not to whine too much.   :-)  I should have a ton of finished for OPAM this month.

Happy Stitching!   . . . . .   Sunny

  2. I do hope your eye is better sew you can go to retreat my friend but if not you can have a Home Retreat. Maybe Myron can do the cooking. You have plenty to keep you busy. I always sew my my pieces of batting together to use up my bits...

  4. I’m sorry you are 'under the weather', so to speak. Quiet b-days are the norm in my life, even when I’m well. It would be a shame to miss the retreat, but sounds like you have a good attitude about it. And you certainly have plenty piled up to keep you busy! I hope your eye clears up quickly!

  11. My odometer has rolled over so many times, I don't think I can get all the quilts made that I already have patterns and fabric already in stash. Yet I keep adding to that list. Sorry you are having problems that would keep you away from fun with friends.

  12. You can always celebrate that odometer roll over--next week is as good as this week, my friend--in fact you have a whole year to celebrate in before it rolls over again!!!!!
    I am with you on the layering and basting--sometimes thinking of having to do it is actually worse that doing it!!!
    love the ibis photo!!
    enjoy, di

  15. Getting an eye infection is not the way to celebrate a birthday!! I do hope you recover quickly and have a chance to enjoy your special day - even a few days late.
    But that pile of quilts shows how well you have used the down time!!

  16. oh no! I will send some positive vibes that the infection goes away quickly and you can go to your retreat......but actually looks like you have made good alternative plans......I think all of us love to start new projects.....and our UFO pile results.....lol.......
