I had the greatest day on Wednesday with my September goals so do you think I could have 2 productive days back to back? NO! I had one of those lovely Ocular Migraines. I did some research on them this time and I have found out that if I close my eyes and see the jagged black and white jumping line that I will be OK. So if it happens again, I know what to take immediately. This time it fired up all issues along with the most horrible Meniere’s Brain Fog! This one was different that the other 3 I have had. This one was a classic Meniere’s Ocular Migraine!
No worries because I am fine today – just some allergies! So to show you what a great day I did have here are some pictures. I was checking my blocks for Stonefields and look what I found! 20 blocks for Alexander Bean Pot (ABP) that I had made a year or so ago when I started working on this quilt. I evidently had decided to make 4 of each instead of 2 each. ,.
I have 16 blocks ready to sew and will then cut out another set of 2 of each of these fabrics. Wednesday evening I marked all of the 1” squares to make the Square in a Square corners.
Next I traced 10 of the 13 Bitty Blooms by Jacquelynne Steves for a modified Happy Little Things BOM. Check it out as it is a cute quilt with many possibilities. She is selling the Bitty Blooms for $6.00 and it is downloadable.
Next, I washed and ironed the background fabric for Celebrating Mary Brown. I have 9 background blocks cut, marked and ready to complete the prepping process – and that will hopefully be today for the first 4 blocks!
This is the fabric that I purchased for Mary Brown in 2016. It is the same fabric that Corliss used in her quilt! Thanks to Jan, it was one of the great pieces of fabric I purchased on that day – along with some of Di Ford’s fabric line from 2016! I cut and then mark my blocks in order to keep each block on the same grain! Sometimes I forget but with this quilt I am marking each as I go along!
I am glad to be back to ‘almost normal’ today and hoping to produce even more! Time will tell! Have a great week-end and happy stitching!
