This is my current project. I have been working on it off and on for a couple months now. I am fascinated by the coin quilts I see on Flickr. This one is all itsy bitsy scraps left over from cutting the 1 1/2 inch squares for my Triple Irish Chain.
Instead of listing when I finish quilts I should just list when I start them! It seems I start a new one every month. We have been horribly sick with the H1N1 virus. This is our second time around. The first time it was only our son. This time it his all 3 of us at home. Our older son did come home on Saturday for 20 minutes to pick up one of the cars and I am hoping that wasn’t long enough to pick up the virus. At that time only our younger son had it. By Monday morning my Mr and by Monday evening I was violently ill. Ill like I have never been in my entire life. The only things worse are childbirth and I have to say streph is more painful. This one is just embarrassingly grotesquely sickeningly horrible! I am drained of energy. I had to go to work today to keep my job. They don’t allow you out sick 3 days without hospitalization or filing for FMLA. I ate an apple at 11a and thought the pains going through my stomach were going to do me in. At 2p I tried to drink half a glass of water only to get bubbles running all over my stomach. Tonight I was able to eat a pancake. I’m going to bed. Exhausted. Nice reading ….. maybe at least I can read this a year from now and be healthy and grateful. I am grateful it isn’t Christmas eve or morning. That would be worse!
My son and I did get a project done for school tonight while cooking dinner. It is a snowman that we decorated with even itsier bitsier bits of fabric….smaller than the ones used in the quilt above. I’ll photo it and add when I feel a bit better. It has button eyes too and 3 red buttons on the front. It turned out really cute and will go on the wall at school.
P.S. I spoke to the Assist Principal today at school and the Principal is out with H1N1 today……. it sounds like the exact same symptoms as ours. GROSS!
