Over the holidays I was a veritable house on fire with ambition. I cleaned. I sorted. I prioritized. I made lists. I was off to a great start.
Then I got sick. Not pneumonia this time. Strep instead.
That is why you have heard and seen nothing from me. There wasn’t much to hear or see. Except pain and fatigue.
I wasn’t trying to be noble or stubborn. Again, my symptoms weren’t classic, and I didn’t recognize how sick I was until it could be ignored and coped with no longer.
Thursday I finally broke down and went to the doctor. Antibiotics are amazing!
So, yesterday, Saturday, I was able to do a few things. I chose an item off my WIP list, the Fairy Quilt, and made some decisions:
- For a while I went back and forth trying to decide if it was done or not, but this time I have really made up my mind: IT IS DONE. It is going out to the quilter this week. When it comes back, it will be bound and prepared to be my annual donation to the local women’s shelter fundraiser.
2. Just a quilt doesn’t seem like quite enough, so I made this pillow to go with it. Together they will make a nice set and someone will see them and say, “That is just right for my (grand)daughter’s room!”
So, that will be a finish for January. Hopefully I can keep a one-a-month schedule for the year. Is that too much to hope for?
