Somehow it was a busy weekend despite not really doing anything. I did some quilting over the weekend. I have 80 square-in-square blocks to make for the outer border of the Mariner's Compass wall hanging. As I was trimming up a bunch of them.... I realized I completely forgot to make some with a green center. Argh!
Back to pressing and cutting strips so I could make the 14 green square-in-square blocks. I cut all the fabric, but then ran out of steam and just didn't have it in me to actually sew up the blocks.
There have been a lot of people out sick at my work. I think that's part of why I feel run down, but I'm hoping that I don't get this cold that's been going around. It typically has been knocking people down for 3-4 days.
On a good side, I thought I'd share a picture of my parents' Christmas tree from this year. They used to get real trees when I was kid, but then my mom found out she was allergic to mold. Surprisingly, evergreens are absolutely covered in mold...no wonder my mom was always sick around the holidays! They ended up finding a very nice artificial tree... which is hard to do when you're looking for a 12-foot tree!!
Hope everyone is having a great week so far :c)
