My crazy life!!


The good news is that we have new ceiling lights in my office which (I)we are trying to make a bit more flexible for other purposes (design walls, etc)..I did not say that!  The bad news is that while I was upstairs in bed sick, the worker came to paint/popcorn where he installed the lights....and this quilt was still hanging..now it has damage....just ugh..especially since I had hand quilted it in my old hand quilting days.
 I have washed it and in these places, the red dye is missing or the white paint is there...ugh again...
 The good news is that last night I got one of the stack of pinned but unquilted quilts out...and finished it!!!  That is two Christmas UFO's done..amazing....The bad news is that I just finished washing these two quilts together, only to find some of the white blocks in the quilt below, are now red.  It bled consistently to the white and red polka dotted only...not into the white on the Irish chain or any where else...
 The good news is that it is ok, because it is consistent...mostly....
The bad news is that I got a cold which is immediately in my chest.  I hope that it does not involve my asthma again.  The good news is that I am up and at um...and trying to be positive and be calm and quilt on!!!!.

I am glad you are being calm about things. It would not serve you to get upset when you are sick. I hope you feel better soon.

Sorry to hear about the damage to your hand-quilted quilt -- try to let that just be part of its story. And the bleeding, well, boo. We have all been there. My recommendation: just accept it, the so-called "fixes" only make it worse. (voice of experience)
And sorry to know you are ill. Take care!
