When I went to bed last night, I couldn't sleep thinking of sewing the last 2 pieced borders on Orca Bay. Finally I was in dreamland, dreaming of quilting fabulous feathers all over Orca Bay on a yacht. I have some pretty weird dreams.
When I woke up this morning, I felt like I had been run over by a big ole truck. My head hurt, my throat hurt, I felt like crap! So I did what I do best when I don't feel good, I went back to bed! Then I tossed and turned until I couldn't stand it any more and got up and parked myself in the recliner with my blankie. I did fix myself a piece of toast and a cup of tea, thinking it might make me feel a little better but it didn't.
So needless to say my third retreat day was a bust. But not completely. I worked on my granny squares and made pretty good progress. Instead of going all willie-nillie, I sorted out my squares and made myself a plan. I have 8 different squares and need 15 of each. I marked how many of each I had and am now doing them in sets, like an organized person would do.........what's with that??? So I have 1 set complete, with a second set well on it's way with only 5 left to do before I start round 4 on this set.
Once in a while I would browse Blogland and while doing so I found a new to me blog called Bearpaw. She sent me on a search of African Flower Hexagons, which lead me to this tutorial. And then I have to pin all the goodies to my Pinterest and that led to looking here and there and everywhere. I did make the day go pretty fast. Well maybe the naps helped too. I am ready to put on my pjs-it's only 6 pm here-and think about what I might do tomorrow.
Oh My! Will I ever get all my want to makes made???
