We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming….

……for this.

I felt awful coming home yesterday and a trip to the doctor today confirmed Influenza A. I think hubby has it too. It is highly contagious so I will be out of work for a week. If only I felt good enough to sew. But I don’t.

I did iron the table runner that I took apart and resewed. Here is the before:

And the after:

I am much happier with this arrangement but I am still not in love with it. Maybe I will like it better after quilting.

And now I am gong to lay down again….. I hope all is well in your world.

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    Awww…bless your dear heart. I’m so sorry you and hubby are feeling lousy.

    I didn’t see a problem with the first layout, but I have to agree, the revision does look a bit better.

    Now ~ get some rest!!

    I hope you feel better quickly. No fun to be sick at home and not feel well enough to sew. Love the table runner. Great colors.

    I like this, such precision sewing. How about taking the 2 end blocks and position them so the light diamond is to the end then the stars are all surrounded by the darker fabrics? Hope you fog muddled cold head leaves soon.

  5. Hope you and hubby will soon be feeling better. Rest and fluids and meds! I like the table runner both ways so that’s no help at all!

    Feel better soon.

    Get well soon!

    There are so many possibilities! I agree with Gladie that switching the end blocks is a good possibility. Also, framing the zig-zag edges with dark half-diamond triangles all the way around might help. My best ideas come after a good nap. Rest easy and get well soon!

    I hope the medicine helps you feel better soon! Just rest. Hugs,

  12. Sure hope you are feeling better soon. Please take very good care of yourself and Mr. Wonderful!

    Sorry to hear you have the flu 😦 A lot of that going around. Hopefully they gave your hubby Tamiflu too. I’ve been down for 3 days with a bad back and keep thinking wish I could go downstairs and sew, but so far still on my couch with body length heating/massage pad
