A really bad day brings quilting time

I got the pattern for the hearts at the above website and then added 16 patches for the filler blocks.  I could see this one as a Quilt of Valor, but it is going to my friend whose mom is battling breast cancer.  I hope she loves it!  I sure do and will have to make myself one just like it.  Yeah, who am I kidding?  I don't think I have kept one quilt I've made for myself.

Today was the worst migraine in a very long time.  I've felt so sick all day and am happy that I have a hobby like quilting where I can sit and mindlessly sew all day long.  I finally figured out how to make my sewing chair comfortable for long periods at the sewing machine.  No fancy back rest for me.  I just rolled up an old towel and can position it just right in the small of my back for support.  Wish I could quit my job and just sit and sew all day, every day :)  Retirement is way too long off.

I love being retired. Especially since my studio door has a time lock on it that keeps away all bad thoughts and stops time while you are in it. 1 hour of studio time is really 5 hours of normal time. LOL

Again, I am amazed at all you get done and work full time too. Those kids will give you migraines! I get more quilting done since I retired (part time work)than I did working full time but not as much as I thought I would.
