Pass the Kleenex

I've caught this nasty virus that it seems half the people here in town have. The nice man at Long's said he'd had it too as he rang up my purchases: a jumbo box of kleenex with lotion, Vicks vapo-rub, nasal decongestant spray, and cough drops. I felt so crappy I actually stayed home from work Thursday and Friday.

I've spent a lot of hours on the couch watching tv and knitting. I've developed a love of BBC America and Gordon Ramsey's two food shows The F Word and Kitchen Nightmares. He's much more likable in these than in the American version of his show Hell's Kitchen. I'll have photos of the knitting soon.

I have composed the center of my charity quilt for the women's shelter clients. I've added home dec fabric to some of my orphan blocks. This kind of row design is my new favorite. I realized after I got the fabric up on the wall that the two strips are of two different widths. I'll fix that later. After I get up off the couch. Maybe in a couple of days.

What an interesting pattern that is. The "balls" almost seem to turn because of the value changes.

Feel better soon. I have a cold too; it's the pits because this is the first warm sunny weekend of the year!

So sorry to hear that you're under the weather, Barbara. Feel better soon. I like the way this quilt makes a center strip of squares...interesting how it works!

Wes and I ended up getting steroid shots to rid us of that nasty virus. I am not sure mine worked but Wes was better in a day or so. I dragged for days. I hope you can get back to your busy self soon!

Love the idea you have brewing for the quilt!
