Fighting Through

I've been fighting off a head cold since Monday. I got sick earlier this year and made it through without taking any sick days. I staggered through each day and then came home to sleep until it was time to get up and go to work again. I decided this time to nip it in the bud and took a sick day today to stay home and rest. I feel 100% better now, so I think my plan worked. I did take some time between naps to get a little more done on the double delight quilt.
I got out the shapemaster and made quick work of the nine patches. They were turning out so darn cute that I even cut extras to whip up a couple of baby doll quilts for the girls. While the kids did their homework this afternoon, I FINALLY finished squaring up the square-in-a-square blocks. Yikes did that take forever. I got enough of those sewn together to lay out on the floor and appreciate. It's 9:30 now and I'm ready to call it a night.
I'm quite happy with the way this quilt is turning out. I'm glad, because some of the steps have been fairly time consuming. I would hate to have put in all that work and not been happy with the outcome.

your quilt looks great laying there on the floor... its going to be stunning all together.

I figure taking a sick day and actually getting over things is a good plan! Why be typhoid mary to your friends and co-workers just to prove you can... :-)
