Still Trying to Shed this Crazy Cold

Not much sewing got done this week.  Not much of anything actually, unless you consider sleeping as something.  I have been fighting this crazy cold all week.  And my cold is not the only cold I could do without.  The temperature has gone down each day to well below normal - even lower than it has been in 20 years or so.  A cold-weather advisory was issued for Toronto,  my daughter only had 8 kids show up for school, water mains broke and all kinds of things were cancelled.  But I missed it all.  I just slept through it all.. Mimi wasn't feeling well either.  She hates the cold and slept on the heating duct all week.  I invited her into my bed, but she didn't want to catch my cold.

I had promised myself that I would work on some UFOs, but that did not happen.  My mind was not sharp enough to figure out where I was and what I had to do next in each project I picked up.  So I just worked on a few blocks for Terry's 'Goodnight Irene Sew-Along'.  I managed to make 5 16-patch blocks and two of the cross blocks.


I also worked on Bonnie's 'Celtic Solstice'.  I really like the 54-40 or Fight blocks.


So that's it for the week.  Hope to get my Mojo going so I can do some more sewing next week.
The weather is turning warmer and we could get some above freezing temps for a couple of days.  That would be nice.  Right now everything is frozen.  I am looking forward to spring!

Have a Great Weekend, everybody!

I love the fabric you're using for your goodnight Irene blocks! They're going to make a beautiful quilt! :0)

Hope you are feeling better, Hetty! I pcked up that nasty cold bug just prior to flying to TX and it seemed like weeks before it went away. I'm still dragging. Love your Goodnight Irene blocks!

Oh Hetty I love both projects. I looked on Terry`s Blog and sign in. This project is so fantastic.
Maybe I make my own ;-)

I wish you feel better soon.
Greetings Grit

Hi Hetty,
Get better soon!
Maybe follow Mimi's idea: my cats all sleep on the heating outlets and are fine!
Love.

Love your Good Night Irene blocks. I've been wanting to do the Celtic Soltice quilt but have to get some UFOs done before I tackle anymore projects. Yours look so pretty.

Love your Goodnight Irene blocks. Your Celtic Solstice blocks, too. I'm working on those patterns, too.
