I meant to post this yesterday, but my day did not go as planned. It’s allergy season, and I ran out of my allergy medicine, and decided to try the kind My Cowboy takes.
If a medication says on the package “may cause drowsiness”, it in fact really means “will turn Shelly into a vegetable”. So for an inordinately large portion of my day, I sat on the couch, unable to move my appendages. I may have even drooled a little.
But it’s worn off now, and today I’m back to my normal flittery self. I even got some sewing done!
If you’ve been reading along, you saw my newest pattern last Friday here on the blog, Greek Cross.
My cover sample was made up in a fairly traditional colorway, and I love it. But I also wanted to see it made up in a different colorway as well, just for kicks.
I made this one in the throw size. The pattern teaches lessons on various methods for doing half-square triangles, and also includes options to make the quilt in four different sizes: throw, twin, queen, and king.
Now I just need to get it quilted.
And I promised to draw two winners, who will each receive a copy of the pattern, so without further ado, they are:
Congratulations! I’ll get them right out to you.
Also . . .
I’m taking her up on this challenge. Like Pat, quilting is my work, and I spend a lot of time sewing and quilting for other people every day, which means that a lot of the time, my own stuff slips to the back burner. So . . . I’m taking this challenge to sew every day on something of my own — so far I’ve been managing to do it, even in spite of the allergy medicine.
What do you say? Will you join us?
