It's been one of those weeks. Robin has come down with some sort of lurgy, coughing, spluttering, aches and pains. According to the Medical Centre when he went for his (unrelated) blood pressure check-up last week, it seems lots of patients who have recently returned from Australia have been presenting with the same symptoms. Probably something picked up in the air flights, we all know that the circulating air picks up all sorts of bugs from travelers. With a lot of TLC he is slowly coming right. And then, wouldn’t you know it, the bugs jumped over to me - how’s that for sharing!
I managed to get the pieced backing completed for my Aussie quilt top, before feeling under the weather. So much so, that I’ve had to take myself off for a nana nap during the week, something that I never do. Guess I needed to rest up, after those disturbed nights lately.
I then summoned up some energy to get the quilt layered and pinned. Gemma thought that was an invitation for her to come and play too. Seems the batting is not wide enough, I had to cut some off the length and stitch it down the side to make it fit.
My attempt at machine quilting was disastrous, puckers underneath which meant I had to spend some time with my quick-unpicker. I hate that, don't you? Guess I’m not quite in the right frame of mind to be spending too much time sewing. I’ll try again later when I’m feeling a little better.
