Quilts and Other Stuff from Frances

An interesting week…..


This has been an interesting week……

On Tuesday, at my guild meeting, we were entertained by Lanette Edens of the Gypsy Quilter.  She presented a wonderful program where she showed new products and lots of ideas…..


I was most interested in this book…..

…..so I purchased it after the meeting.   I love that the blocks are all pieced without ANY Y-Seams!!   Cant wait to try some of the patterns using my scrap strips.

On Wednesday morning, I woke up with a bit of a sore throat and by 5:00pm, I was running a fever, suffering with severe chills  and thoroughly miserable!!!   Unfortunately, Michael was about 24 hours ahead of me and was already sick!!!  

The next two days we each spent as much time as possible resting and getting well, although we both had work tasks that needed to be accomplished.

One of the cute things that I found was that the Throat Lozenges I bought had a motto of “A pep talk in every drop”!!

As I looked further, I realized that each individual package had other mini “pep talks” on them……

  –      Be Unstoppable

  –      Put a Little Strut in it.

  –      Turn “can do” into “can did!”

  –      Bet on yourself

  –      Hi-five yourself

  –      Elicit a few “Wow’s” today

  –      Don’t give up on yourself

  –      Take charge and mean it

  –      The show must go on.

I actually started looking forward to opening a new one so that I could be “pepped up”!!!

Today (Saturday), we are both feeling MUCH better and I was actually able to spend the day in my studio…..more to come about that…..

Tonight, we both felt good enough to cook, so Michael made a wonderful Turkey Meatloaf with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Feta Cheese  and I added Roasted Squash and steamed Broccoli…..

  1. I am glad to hear that you are both on the mend. Love the little pep messages, such a good idea. Can't wait to see what you get up to with your new book.
