I know you've been expecting a fishing post, but this time our trip had to be put off. Mr. Squash caught a bad cold while we were back East and no sooner did we get home, I got it. We decided to go fishing anyway and spent the night in a hotel near the river. During the night I got worse, so we had to cancel and reschedule the trip. I went to my doctor and she diagnosed pneumonia! Talk about a shock. I had no idea it was more than just a bad cold. I am on antibiotics and still upright, but this does take a lot out of you. I want to be sure and be perfectly well for our trip to Colorado later this month, so I'm taking it easy. Well, sort of....
I just can't be idle for long and I thought a little quiet sewing in my studio would fill some of the time. I got the small quilt bug from Linda over at The Quilted Pineapple. She is turning out some great little quilts lately in addition to her gifted longarm quilting business. A dear friend gave me some darling fall themed 2 1/2" squares which I thought would be fun in this little Itty Bitty Primitive pinwheel quilt from Primitive Gatherings. I finished the top yesterday. There is still a little surprise I'm adding to this one and I'll show it to you as soon as it's finished.
I also finished another of my Cottage Charm BOM blocks. I wasn't going to show this one as it feels awfully light in value to me, but it does seem to photograph better than it looks in person! Imagine that. I'm really hoping the next one has a tad more color and pizzaz!
Every day I feel a tiny bit better. I hope by next week I'm good as new. Until then I think I'll be spending my time right here in my studio having some quiet, summer sewing fun!
