antibiotics to igloos and stitching to jumbalaya

Half way through my antibiotics, and I can now move without feeling that my barometric head is pressurized and about ready to explode.  Though the 24 hour flu virus has invaded my area, I've not succumbed as of yet, and I'm not planning on it either! :)
It's still partly sunny with a chance of igloos in my neighborhood:
I'm thankful I can be inside where it's cozy and warm.

So, what quilt-y something have I accomplished in the last few days?
Not much...
I added a border to one block (of the last row) of my Lucy Boston quilt work-in-progress.  Well, really I only stitched together the pictured bottom six cream pieces:
Lucy Boston, Patchwork of the Crosses
that I'm hand-stitching, English paper-piecing (1 inch size).
 Then I jumped turned over to this:
My signature block for Flags of the American Revolution,
pattern by Jan Patek.
 Yep, I applique-stitched the star, the the letter L and some of the letter S.

Then I dug through my recipe file box and found my Jumbalaya recipe that I've adapted for the slow-cooker.  I've pulled some sausage and cooked chicken from the freezer, so I'll start that tomorrow morn. (In my world, there's no shrimp, so that will be a side to be added if you want it).
That means dinner tomorrow night is planned.

Not many accomplishments so far, huh?
Glad it's only Tuesday!!

Hope your week is starting out well, and 
Happy Stitching!


  1. So glad you are on the mend. Looks like you accomplished a lot for someone not yet up to snuff. I love your Lucy Boston block. I am soooo tempted to start one. Hope it warms up for you. We are finally in the positive numbers this morning and may even get to 2 digits by noon. Whoohoo!


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
