A semi-retired professional longarm machine quilter

Memory quilt

Ok, Saturday my computer leaves home to visit with a friend who worked on it to make it better. On Sunday morning my computer comes back. It is soooooo much better!!

Saturday, I looked through the quilting work to be finished by xmas and decided to finish piecing the remaining three tops I have left to do. I’m thinking if I get those finished it will greatly reduce the stress of staying on deadline. There won’t be anything except staying on the machine to finish out the xmas rush season.

On Sunday afternoon this is where I am on the first top. The squares are almost completed….. when my stomach starts to feel queezzzy….. ugh. I had just finished drinking a milk shake from a fast food place.

Maybe that was it…. bad milk shake… OR someone had been around me that was sick. Either way by the end of Sunday I’m in bed with a bucket beside it. Nothing will stay down, not even water and I feel extremely thirsty. That’s where I remained until yesterday afternoon. Geeze….. more days behind schedule. I’m finally able to keep something in my stomach although it’s still just clear soups and juices.
Today I’m going to pick up where I left off with the purple picture quilt. I’m planning to finish it then see what is best to do next. I’m taking it one step at a time. If I feel weak… I will lay back down. This seems to be the hardest year I’ve had for a long, long time. I look forward to finishing the season and moving on. Hopefully, next year will be much better.
