Well I have to say that February has been a definite challenge for me. I started the month by catching a virus (Yup on February 1). Since lots of other people at my work seemed to have it worse than me I dragged myself to work that week and took off one day the following week. I was pretty tired out and had little energy left over for quilting or blogging. I did manage to put together the Polaroid block for Katrin and it's on it's way to Germany now.
And I managed to get my Stash Bee Block done for Renae but that had it's own challenges, among them a new technique ( applique using interfacing , and a miss cut background piece). Don't worry I fixed the miss cut!
I liked both of these blocks and if time permits I just might make my own versions of these quilts some day.
Just as I was recovering from the flu my 87 year old aunt who lives in the big city fell in her apartment. She was on the floor for several days and is now in the hospital. My sisters family and my family have been doing our best to visit her and support her and look after her affairs. My sister and I are her closest relatives and neither of us live in the same city as her, so this has been very stressful. She is recovering quite well however and will eventually make it home again.
Oh yes, and I was hosting TGIFF for the first time that week. I'm happy I pulled that off and I'm grateful to Deanne of Devoted Quilter who mentored me through the experience.
Somewhere between the flu and the fall I managed to pin baste my daughters quilt. It's my OMG for February and it's safe to say I won't be completing it, but I just might get that Midnight Mystery quilt top together....should have made that my goal. I'm linking up to Let's Bee Social over at Lorna's blog and I'm going to check out what everyone else has been up to.
