How it got to be January 16 already. And how it's been a month since I posted. And how I get myself wrapped up doing mystery quilts before I know what it's going to look like.
I've been under the weather for 10 days with the head crud my husband caught at work. I'm still coughing and feeling less than 100%. This week I had to postpone 2 quilt classes and did not go to my monthly guild meeting--only the second time in 26 years I've missed a meeting. The good news is I'm feeling better and plan to teach a great class tomorrow.
The next great news is I just finished my Grand Illusion Mystery quilt, from Bonnie Hunter's blog. Mine is half size and has some variations. I have more than enough projects going that I had no business starting this one BUT: it's so easy to get excited by the fabrics and the units as they are released. So, here is MY version:
It took much longer to complete than I anticipated. I'm glad it's done and know what I'll be doing with this one. And I really mean it: no more mysteries until I know what it looks like--OR I finish 20 of my PHDs: projects half done.
The NEXT great news is: we found out the sex of our grandchild. Take a look at my son's
Announcement! video. We are thrilled! It's 20 weeks and all is well! Their due date is June 4, 2015.
It's a new year and I trust I am getting all my sickness out of the way for the whole year. The coughing has been tough and I've mostly read and slept for the last 10 days. I'm ready to get more sewing done--that grandbaby will be here before we know it.
UPDATE: Go to Bonnie's Link Up party to see what others did with their Grand Illusion.
