In print now!

My 'Among the Evergreens' quilt and runner came out in Australian Patchwork and Quilting this past week. How fun to see more of my scraps up in lights!

The runner in particular has special memories for me. I created the project for the Wednesday girls at the store. It was kind of a ruse, because Maureen had a 70th birthday looming, and we were conspiring to make a quilt for her. So, while the girls were working on their 'runner' they were actually making the blocks up for Maureen's quilt right under her nose. It was really fun. And Maureen made up a whole runner with no idea of what was going on!

I have had more doctors appointments this week. As soon as I finished my second course of antibiotics I started to flag again, but in a different way - breathless and heavy in the chest. I've now has blood tests and this afternoon some chest x-rays. The doctor is worried that I'm not resting enough, and he's probably right - I love my job, and have many deadlines at home too. I'm on my third course of stronger antibiotics, and I'll wait to hear what his verdict is. I won't let this get me down - the power of positive thinking (and some rest) will get me thru this :-)

LOVELY!!!! I quilted my Crabapple quilt this week, so we are both doing tree things. LOVE tree things. Your quilt and runner are gorgeous.

I hope you can get something to knock that Elephant off your chest. I know what it's like to be buried under deadlines and push things beyond the limit of my physical and mental health. Take care of you!

*hugs*

Tazzie! You need to take better care of yourself! You'll end up with pneumonia--if you don't have it already! You have to learn to ignore house, ignore deadlines, even ignore scrabble (sniff)--just get you better!

Tazzie - that's very bad and very good news in one post.
First - PLEASE rest & tak care of yourself...as the other girls pointed out, your health is nothing you should take easily {sorry, that sounds more patronizing than intended...just don't want you to be even more seriously ill!!}
Second - whoootwhooot! Congratulations on being published with such a beautiful project!
Hugs - Julia

I love the tale of Maureen's quilt. Thanks for sharing. Now please take care - our bodies heal while we rest. Grab a cuppa, get a little sun, read that book you've been wanting to read. Family and friends will understand - truly. Now I'm off to read my APQ - congratulations!

Cheryl said...

Let everything go and just rest! Look after you for a change.
The story of Maureen's quilt is a beauty! I bet it was a scream being made that way. It certainly would have made it even more special when Maureen found out.

Eileen said...

Tazzie, it sounds to me like you need to take a day and do NOTHING. Sleep, read a book and let others wait on you.

Love you story and congrats on another published quilt.You are something. Hugs.

Do have the Dr check that you don't have pneumonia - a friend of ours has just had it - can be very nasty!
Get well soon.
