Calender Week 5

Surprisingly enough I weighted in at 73,8kg this morning. Surprisingly because I had not moved a lot, the sniffles could not keep me indoors, but the coughing was no joke. I am sure my work colleagues were happy when I finally went home on Thursday. Friday I had a fever on top of the cough and stayed home. Still better off than MyGuy as he is now on sick leave for pneumonia for the second week.

Luckily sewing kept me from eating even more sweets than I did. The good thing about this is that I have now 90 of the blocks for Sicilian Oranges, however I am considering making it one row wider than the brothers' quilts as MyGuy is a bit more substantial than those lads. That would mean I need 130 blocks. I have another 14 cut, so might sew those up first. In addition for every two orange blocks I make one for my star quilt. I laid out a couple of blocks yesterday and I am sure now I am not going to put the sashing from Bonnie's book version, I like the interplay of the triangles and the secondary stars too much. Might mean I need more blocks there, I will have to check. And of course with the sewing of those blocks figured out my brain was off entertaining itself with the idea of green frames. I made one test block yesterday and think I need to make a few more to see if what I am seeing in my mind is what I will get.

Not a lot of reading, but I did start three new books and finished one of them last week, Night Broken by Patricia Briggs.
