Blue Cheese

I think I have all of the blocks made for Blue Cheese and I have started making and adding the border sections to the outer blocks before joining everything together. This is what Blue Cheese looked like last Tuesday evening and I was feeling quite pleased with my progress. I figured I would have the top completed within a couple days.

However....I was feeling a bit scratchy in my throat and I was starting to cough and I had no idea that I was going to be out of commission for a week. I have spent pretty much the whole week in bed with the flu.

You know, I was contemplating getting the flu shot this year and my husband was quite insistent that I get it because the flu was supposed to be really bad this year but I decided not to. Right now I really regret that decision and I will get the shot next year. I have lost a whole week of my life and I am still not fully recovered.  Yesterday and today I am up and about the house trying to get my energy back but I am still not back to full strength. Thankfully, I am not working so I do have time to recover and get back into the swing of things in my own time.

Thankfully, piecing quilts is not a strenuous activity so I hope to be back showing some more progress on Blue Cheese and maybe even the finished top over the next few days.

Your blocks are SO beautiful!
I'm sorry to hear you have been down with the Flu.
I hope you are beginning to feel much better now.

Oh no! Sorry to hear the flu knocked you out. Take it easy and you'll get that quilt finished when it is ready.
