I've spent the last few days making some much needed progress on this quilt - In Full Bloom. It's the opportunity quilt I'm designing for our guild's quilt show next year. The vine borders were laid out and lots (and lots) of leaves were made - thank you Alice!!
I finally decided on the green batik (by Edyta Sitar, Love Letters line) to use for the inner borders. The first sawtooth border was almost done.
Here you can see the second sawtooth border is almost finished - everything seemed to be humming along until.....
I got the doctor's diagnosis this morning - I have shingles!! How did that happen?? He asked me if I'd had any stressers lately. When I mentioned that I had gone back to work and was trying to learn Excel he laughed and said that would be enough to stress anybody!! (Not sure if he was serious or not!!)
So I've started the medicine and I'm hoping for the best. I've heard horror stories about the pain, but I'm trying to stay positive. Working on this beautiful thing is a good way to keep my mind off the pain. I'm hoping I've caught it early. So for the moment, I'm still appliqueing vines and leaves. Wish me luck!!
Hope you're having a good Wednesday,
