If you've read my blog in the past few days, you might want to go get a throat culture

Amazingly, I've got Strep. What's up with that? Thought it was a bout of seasonal allergies, but when I woke up this morning, did not want to get out of bed ('s a work day, right?...nothing strange about that, sorry), could barely swallow or speak,  I thought I should maybe run up and let the doc have a look.  Doctor's orders are I can't go to work until Thursday (of course I can telecommute-just no human contact),  toss out the toothbrush and get a new one after tomorrow, remember to take a pill for the next 4 days and I'll be good as new in time to go to the Lancaster AQS show next weekend.

Not quite in a quilty mood, maybe sometime tomorrow. I've added more fabric to the stable. I justified this as a necessity for seasonal table quilting purposes, and Hancocks of Paducah was having a not-to-be passed by sale. The package arrived today.

Kaufman patriotic batiks.

I was actually pretty proud of myself. I had a cart full of Kaffe fabs and a mess of blue and green batiks, but I came to my senses and reminded myself of all the projects I've already got laid out that aren't started and wisely pared the order down to just these three cuts. (Good girl! Though the hubs isn't seeing 'only 3 cuts instead of four times that', he's still seeing 'more fabric'.)

I've got figure out what day to go to Lancaster next week. Do I go with my sister and her friend for a day trip, or do I deposit the dogs at the daughter's and drag the hubs for an overnight and hope there's a golf course nearby, because the last thing I want to do is be leashed to the hubs in the vendor mall of a big quilt show. I have to make up my mind tomorrow morning before my peeved  (because I didn't call her back tonight) sister phones.

Well, the eyes are getting itchy and tired, the lashes need their nightly application of Latisse, I'm not feeling the blogertainment vibe tonight and I think a nice warm cup of cocoa would do wonders for my throat. Hopefully I'll feel up to getting in a little stitching I can show off tomorrow night.

Take care, and don't forget the hand sanitizer--as I apparently did.


  1. Oh yuck, poor you, I hope you're soon feeling a bit better - at least up to sewing if not up to going back to work!

  2. aww, feel better! ps, love the cupcakes from the last post.


I appreciate and look forward to your comments. Thanks for reading. Happy quilting!
