Attack of the "Blahs"

Yesterday was a day of the "blahs". I woke up with a headache, and a bad kink in my neck that wouldn't go away no matter what I did. Spent most of the day on the couch with Advil and a heating pad. I hate it when I have stuff I really want to do, but my body tells me that there is no way it is going to happen. Finally, by the evening I was feeling better, so decided to come upstairs to do something, but still had a really hard time settling down to focus on any one thing. I've been going through my new books, and have decided on a project for my bin of 2 1/2 inch strips. I managed to get all of the lights cut into the 2 1/2 inch by 3 1/2 inch rectangles, but I think I'm going to cut the darks a few strips at a time as I sew. I'm kind of regretting cutting all the lights at once into that size, no opportunity to change my mind. I also, by deciding to cut for the length of my Hillsong album, got my pile of odds and ends fabric cut down into various sizes, which topped up my 2 1/2 inch bin even more than it was. I think I'm going to do the same thing today with my large drawer of odd sized batiks. I got my "Crazy Curves" templates in the mail, so that is what I'll be doing with the batiks. I'm going to try and focus on doing a project for the length of time it takes to go through a playlist of songs on my i-tunes, and see if that will help with getting various things done. So, first task for today, cutting up, and sorting out that bin of batiks. Second, sew up some more for those 2 1/2 inch scrap blocks for the "Kitchen Sink" project. Third, do some more endless chain blocks. Then.......... oh yes, figuring out income tax. (sigh) My dear husband, Scott, actually does the income tax, but I have to figure out all my income and expenses for my quilting. That is his goal for today, so somewhere in here, I will have to do that as well. Yuck. Hmmmmm, I think I still have that case of the blahs. Time to go play, and maybe it will go away.


  1. Aw, I'm sorry yesterday was a 'blah' day. I hope today is better and full of good cheer! *Hugs*! :)

  2. Hope you like the crazy curves, I found working with batiks first was a challenge as they don't have as much 'stretch' on the bias, you may want to practice the first one or 2 with reg. cottons
    I had a kink in my neck the other day too, think I slept 'wrong'. I hate that feeling, ruins the whole day


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
