I have been working on a quilt for my youngest little fella. I wanted to use a fat quarter pack of Cruiser Blvd by Riley Blake that I bought a while ago as the main fabrics and I designed a quilt on EQ7 that I hope will be okay for fat quarters.
These photos were taken with my phone and you have probably already seen them if you follow me on Instagram. So this is the fabrics and a draft of the quilt, although I have changed the quilt slightly since this photo was taken.
This is the first block I made. I have made a couple more and I love the way it is looking so far!
But production has come to a grinding halt because I am sick :( Tonight is the first time I have felt some what normal for a few days. To cut a long story short, I have been fighting with a bacterial infection in my upper respiratory tract for a couple of months now, 3 lots of different antibiotics, lots of tests and x-rays later it is still there. So early Friday morning, 2am early, I end up with the worst headache of my life and end up in emergency. They do a CT scan and threaten to do a lumbar puncture but the headache starts going with the good painkillers they gave me so I got to avoid that last painful procedure. I am thinking the headache might have been from the prednisone the GP put me on but I have no proof, the Dr at the hospital told me to stop taking it and gave me different antibiotics to take. I am slowly feeling better but seem to have a bit of a cold now.
Life….what can you do but go for a ride!
One good thing out of it all – the boys got to have a sleep over with their grandparents and I got to get a good nights sleep. Yay!
One bad thing to come out of it – I missed out on seeing the 1700–1945 quilt exhibit at QAGOMA in Brisbane. It finished today. That is what I get for leaving it to the last minute.
Hope you are well!
Til we meet again, Jess
