That about sums it up

Good heavens. The week is coming to an end in the what-just-happened-here way. It’s all a blur. Good thing there is some fabricated evidence for the record.

I do know there was a whole lot of this:

I’m at the point in the cold that I can laugh about it. ha ha Well, let’s just say I can find the idiosyncracies of each individual cold funny. This one started in my right eye and pretty much focused itself on the right side of my head. ha ha

Nevertheless, there was work to be done:

In a more cogent moment:

You might not be able to tell but our printer is out of every color of ink but black, so it wasn’t helping me keep things straight.

Yesterday there was a little bit of this:

Today there is a pile like this:

I believe there was also another puppy-related quilt top and a lot of binding.

But, did you see it up there? Along with our frigid temperatures, we also have glorious sun. Ahhhh. If only I could feel it warming me somewhere… Well, I guess if it was also grey out, the tips of my fingers would be even colder. Enough said. I’ll take what I can get.

Off to press that last pile.

Hope your week was productive and virus-free!



  1. I love those dresdens and the gray/black 9-patch backgrounds really make them pop!

    The dresdens are AMAZING! I LOVE that color combination….the bright on top of the darker color! Very nice! I hope you feel better soon!

  3. Whoa. You got all of that done with a snotty nose and stuffy head? You’re incredible! I could only hope to do 1/2 that well in a good week, with all my faculties intact!! Swooning over your dresdens, too. The little rainbow yoyo’s on the kiddie quilt are sweet and the puppy fabric? adorable!

    I was just at Hawthorne Threads adding more and more of that Flora and Fauna into my cart. Especially those grays. *sigh* We’ll see if it all makes it to checkout. Lovely dresden fabulousness. Hope you feel better soon.

  8. I love those bright, beautiful dresdens on the black and gray fabrics. No virus can stop your creativity!

    Those (bright and FUN) Dresden plates on their dark grey/black pieced backgrounds are absolutely FABULOUS!!!

    I’m a Nurse. My weeks are NEVER virus-free. What a silly thought…?!

    You use a tooth pick for ‘needle turn’ applique too?! I don’t know of anyone else who does this!? What a relief! Thank YOU! ; ) And, bless you!

  10. ooohhh…the dresden plates on the black is stunning.
    Hope you are feeling better soon.

    After reading the other comments….I know this is just repeating what your other readers have said, but I just LOVE those beautiful, joyous, bright and happy looking dresdens. I also have to ask, how do you create so much when you were feeling so unwell?

  13. Hope you are feeling better soon…I’ve been plagued with a right-sided cold this week too! Bizarre!

    I love the dresden blocks….it is amazing how changing the colors makes the whole design look so fresh and modern!

    I love that novelty fabric. So cute. What fun. Hope you are better. I’m struggling to shake the flu. Still feeling like I need kleenex all the time. I need spring!
