Today I wasn't feeling very good and my ankles have been swelling up since Wednesday. The doctor said to elevate my feet, so I've just been putzing around the house. I must have done 10 loads of laundry. Seriously. How can a family of 5 go through 10 loads of laundry in a week. Plus, I know I've done a couple more loads during the week. Crazy.
This is the 3 1/2 inch strip stack. Looks almost big enough for a quilt. I'm going to start sewing these together end to end and see what I come up with. I want to cut some black squares for in between some of the strips. I love the look of the jelly roll quilts that have the black squares in them.
http://travelingquilter.blogspot.com/ She brought me all of these goodies and I've been working through them. Seems like every time I get close to emptying one, I come back the next day and the bucket is full again.
Speaking of full, I got a phone call this afternoon from a lady whose mother passed away 5 years ago. She said her mother had a whole closet full of quilting fabrics. She hasn't been able to let go until now and wanted the fabric put to good use. I will be picking it up tomorrow. Sounds like I'm going to have a great day tomorrow and that I also need to get busy quilting!
No more time for migraines or swollen ankles! I'm hoping that one of these days I will find a medication that takes away the migraines and doesn't have all of the side effects.
