Monthly Accomplishments October 2012

I realized today that I have been feeling sick for a month! I started with a sore throat on 10/3 and I am just starting to get all of my strength back this week. I went to bed on Halloween at 7:45!! I didn't sleep all the way through the night, but it felt great to wake up just after midnight and realize that there were still many hours to sleep!

Now that this is all written out, I got much more accomplished this month in spite of my cold/SARS/walking death garbage than I did last month. WOO HOO!!
  1. Quilted a quilt for Heather that was on display at Quilt Market
  2. Quilted a lap quilt for Kara
  3. Quilted a lap quilt for Gerre. Also sewed the binding down for this quilt.
  4. Had another yard sale, broke my screen on my phone and got it replaced just in time for retreat
  5. Had my Fade to Red quilt on display at another quilt show - granted this was in September, but I didn't post about it until October.
  6. Quilted and finished the binding for the blue star baby quilt
  7. Retreated for a weekend in Shipshewana
  8. Made the blocks and assembled the quilt center for the 5th Scrap Squad
  9. Trimmed and sewed the binding on the 4th Scrap Squad quilt which was subsequently revealed
  10. Finished the blocks for Moon Pie
  11. Made the 3rd Paris in the Fall blocks
  12. Made 2 Midget blocks. And started the next block
  13.  Quilted a baby quilt for Elizabeth
 And books read.

Glad you are on the mend and that the "plague" did not keep you from going to retreat.

I'm glad you are finally feeling better. You need to keep your strength up, we're planning a southern invasion in the spring. That is, if you still want us to come!

You were able to accomplish quite a bit despite not feeling 100%. I'm impressed.

Wow, you got a lot done despite not feeling well. Glad you are on the mend.

Kristie said...

I hope you start feeling better but you still got a ton of stuff done!

Glad that you are starting to feel better. Looks like you managed to carry on though despite it all.

Ugh, a month? Glad you are finally on the mend. I think Jenna has what you had - we are in week 1. Despite not feeling well, you got a ton done!

despite feeling ill for a whole month, you got a lot done! And I see that Jennifer ^ said the same thing I said. LOL!! I looked up at her comment after I wrote mine.

Whew! It made me tired just reading all that you accomplished! Can't imagine what you do when you feel well. A regular dynamo, you are.
Looking forward to seeing the 5th Scrap Squad quilt.
