Eeww - I Got a Bug!

Yesterday started out great - I had all of my quilting plans made and first on the list was to make 7 more of the pink 9 patches for the Project Linus quilt. Once I had them on the wall I decided that I would add another 6 more blocks and just as I was going to start sewing them together I got hit and hit bad with I don't know what. I had been feeling quite tired the past couple days and that should have tipped me off that something was heading my way! I got in my bed for a little lie down and things just got progressively worse. You don't need to hear the details but needless to say I am feeling a little better today. So yesterday, I spent the whole day and evening in bed or on the couch watching The Walking Dead marathon - love that show. I had been to the hospital on Friday for my mammogram and I wash my hands really well but it seems I picked something up anyway. I have so many things that I need to get done so I am glad I was able to get up and get going today even though I was still feeling "off" - I can assure you that I have taken many little rests!

One of the things I wanted to get done today were these pinwheel blocks for a secret project. I have made 6 larger pinwheels that will finish at 8" and I also made 3 blocks that use smaller pinwheels (I can't remember the name of the block). I didn't get the last batch of pink 9 patches done but hopefully tomorrow will be a better day!
