Maybe I'm Crazy...

Maybe I'm crazy and I may be getting in over my head! But I went ahead and cut 240 strips for Bonnie's bargello on Sunday! I love the look of her big bargello, so I read that she cut 240 strips to make a full/queen quilt so that is what I did! Trust me I will not finish it in one day! But I think I could probably get a good dent in it. I think I may try to start on it late Saturday night if I can.

So this morning, you know I locked my keys up AGAIN!! Cost me $85 to get it unlocked! I still haven't told Richard yet. I know he won't get mad, but I just don't want to hear "I told you so" He is such a good man, never really gets mad about anything but teases me alot when I do something dumb!

I felt miserable, but you know how we mothers are, always think of the kids first. Now the boys are not anywhere near as sick as I am but I didn't want them to get this bad. Took them to the doctor where my sister works at the pediatrician's office. He checked the boys and gave them some anitbotics. Then he looked at me and said "If I write you a prescription for antibotics will you take them?" Well Duh! Of course I would take them! So he checked me, wrote me a prescription and never charged me anything! How great is that???? He said my sinuses were terrible, my chest congested, throat red and ear infection in both ears! Hopefully in a few days I will be fine.

Took the boys to Pizza Hut for lunch. They love the buffet bar there and with them going to school we don't get to stop there very often. Came home and hit the couch for a couple of hours. Richard came home and built a fire in the fireplace for me, I was chilling something terrible. He even offered to run back to town for something quick, but I just fixed some quick hot ham and cheeses. Then I finished cutting my strips and have them all ready to go.

I am feeling restless! I feel too bad to sew very much but then again I am bored too death! Mom is leaving in the morning. I haven't been out there for a couple of days. I don't want her to get sick. If she gets sick they will send her home and she can't get back on the boat until she is better. So if she caught this from me she would loose alot of money on her paycheck. So I am staying home and she is staying at her house and we are talking on the phone. I think she said she has to be at the dock around 8am and of course will be gone for 28 days. So you all have a month to hear me whine about my mom!!!

Kristie, you are a cutting machine! You and Jen just make my head spin at the amount of sewing you do. I know I'll never catch up, or reach your capacity, so I'll just have to rejoice with you on your accomplishments!

Feel better soon, Kristie!

I don't have the energy you have at all...but then again I am nearly twice your age ...well not twice but closer than not.

Get some rest and you will be able to run a sewing marathon this weekend.

Hope you get to feeling better. You are going to be sewing for a while with all those strips.

Stay warm, sleep lots, take all your medicine and soon you'll be fit as a fiddle.

You just go ahead and whine all you want. I would feel the same way. That was awesome of that doctor to do that for you. He/She must be a good one. Take care of yourself! I haven't even started cutting for my bargello yet. Hoping to do that today, but my accountant is coming tomorrow and I have a lot to do before he gets here. I'm off to work on that now....

Kristie - You might want to get a AAA membership - less than fifty dollars and they will come out for free and unlock your car! This was a godsend when I locked my keys in my car when on vacation with friends... Hope the antibiotics kick in, get lots of rest and fluids and try to take it easy. I feel bad you can't see your Mom, but hope the phone calls help.

Well, you are going to have a big quilt with 240 strips! I can't believe you have cut so many already!It took me a pretty long time for just 128. I am now sewing mine together into the 4 big units. Are you going to cut your tubes different sizes like JaJa suggested when she gave us directions back on My Quilt Blog, are will your all be the same width?

Take you medicine, stay warm and rest some if you can and hope you feel better real soon!
