just ONE

well, I have been battling with a horrible chest cold (doctor called it bronchitis, but I have a feeling it's type A flu) for 2 weeks now.  Horrible cough, just awful.  Since I have high blood pressure, there are a lot of meds I cannot take.  The doctor gave me a prescription for 'tessalon perles' which helped a couple times, but for the most part didn't help as much as I hoped.  I have literally gone through 5 bags of cough drops (they help the most).  I have been using the sugar-free and surprisingly they are just as effective and don't taste any worse than the loaded with sugar kind.

Anyhow, I am starting to feel a LITTLE better, so I wanted to do a little sewing.  I pulled out 6 of my strips I cut previously for the #scrappytripalong and sewed - these go so fast and you have a block in no time!
I am holding off making anymore for now until I get a couple more WIP's done.  I have the quilt I'm working on for the Bake Shop which is getting close to being a finished top!  But, I also have the curved 9-patch quilt I MUST work on after that....... *then* maybe I'll work on some more #scrappytripalong blocks :)


  1. Sorry to hear that you are ill, but happy to know that you are on the mend and feeling like sewing a bit. You're probably sick of resting, but don't overdo it!

  2. Love it! I am resisting doing that quilt. I've got too many other projects but I love that design!

    Sorry you are still feeling crummy. This stuff just hangs on forever! BeGoneDarnCold!

  3. So sorry you are sick! I know it's awful - so many people around here have some form or other of it. So far, I've been able to stay away, but who knows! Love your scrappy trip along so far! i don't know when I'll be getting to mine, but I'm gonna do it! o:)
