Productivity and Inspiration

Sore throat, chills, a little cough: oops, I think I am sick. Well, it came on Friday night and was pretty full blown when I got home from shopping on Saturday. I was in bed by 3 and was happy that there was football on the TV for DH: I like to be left alone when I am sick. My theory is that food should be pushed under the door and no one should bother me until I am well.

Despite this little setback, I have been really productive. I have a Dresden Plate on the quilt frame and about half done. When not working in there I have completed two flannel rag quilts and two fleece throws. On my design wall (check out Judy's blog on Monday) I have the three Christmas socks I have embroidered for my granddaughter and her little family.

I didn’t do the snowflakes (Walmart did) but I did personalize them.

Behind the socks is another set of swap blocks I picked up Saturday. They are Autumn inspired and will probably reside on the UFO shelf for a few months, until inspiration comes.

And speaking of inspiration, look at what I did.

These are my creations from my first fused glass class. We got to play with bits and pieces of scrap glass and this is what I came out with. I had lots of fun and will really enjoy wearing these, my own creations. But even glass will never take the place of quilting, just provide for a change every once in a while.


  1. hope you get to feeling better soon!

  2. Feel better soon AND also stop embarrassing accomplish more when you are SICK than I do when I'm well!!! Geesh.....

  3. I hope you start to feel better soon.
    I love those stockings and the fused glass. What will you do with the glass

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  4. Ooohh, I love those glass jewels. My gosh, you have sure been getting a lot done. I sure hope the "bug" goes away and you are feeling all well soon.

  5. Love those stockings and fused glass pendants! Hope you feel better!

  6. Pretty glass - it would be cool to try and make some simple quilt blocks, like a four patch. Those would be fun pendants to wear!

    Get better so you can enjoy the holidays and get those flannel quilts done!

  7. Get better soon! No fun to be sick on Thanksgiving! Love the quilt in your banner. I saved that pattern from years ago thinking I would make it. Not! Still sitting there in the to do list.
    Hugs to you my friend,

  8. I hope you are feeling better soon. That is how my bout with the flu/pneumonia started.

  11. Hope you feel better real soon. Oh wow is my reaction to your fused glass. I'd wear it everyday if I made something that pretty.
