Hello Everyone,

Have you ever been so sick you just couldn't do anything, I mean anything for days??  That is what I have been up to for the past week... a lot of nothing.  I got sick and just couldn't do a thing.  I missed sewing so much, had to cancel a trunk show and reschedule a class.  I laid like a slug in the living room snuggled under a quilt with my cats laying all over me.

As of yesterday, I began to feel slightly human again and decided to go into my home studio and sew a little.  This was the best therapy for me.  Even though my sense of smell, hearing, and taste are still off, because of my slight congestion that is still lingering, it was wonderful being back in the saddle again!

Here is what I was up to...

Remember my Feathered Star Wall Hanging?  I had pieced each unit, but they still needed to be pieced together.

So I got started... I have eight "V's" now.  They go smack dab in the middle of the quilt.

One of the best things about ALL of Judy Niemeyer patterns is that the points ALL float.  By that, I mean, the points never touch the seam allowance.  Therefore you never, ever cut off that point by sewing it into the seam.  Cool, right?

Then I made eight of these, by joining three units together.

Eight border units together, by joining three smaller units together.  Note the floating points!

Here it is back on the wall.  Today, I hope to have the entire thing pieced together into a top!  If all things go as planned.  I had a minor slow down yesterday and had to stop sewing.  Hopefully today, I can "press" on!

Until Next Time...
