no matter how positive you are,
you positively cannot keep away the flu
by being positive that you won't get it. :)
The only thing I did during the flu-time-out
that was quilting related
was in a moment of weakness,
I clicked and ordered some fabric:
That's a picture to brighten a cold, Winter day!
All because I saw the one of the far left - the white with pink text!!
Really cute, don't you think?
Because I was under the weather,
(yes, that's my story and I'm sticking with it),
I was blog browsing & came across
a block tutorial with an upcoming sew-along.
(Imagine that, she says sarcastically.)
I immediately fell in love with the stack of fabrics
that Lori (of Bee in My Bonnet fame) was using.
If you've read my blog for even a short amount of time,
you probably know that I'm a sucker for text-y print fabrics...
And sure enough, I was sucked in by
that pink, texty-garden print
and the bottom/center pink bees.But in my flu-addled mind, NO, I didn't stop there!
I added some of the green-text and large floral.
And just for fun added fat quarters from the same line...
Flower Patch by Lori Holt/Bee In My Bonnet.
Then I added:
the large bumble bee (Bumble by TulaPink)
and below that, the gray garden print
(Hawthorne Threads, Norwegian Wood, Thicket, in Stone),
the pink with states text (Cotton&Steel/Hatbox, All the States in Pink),
and the herbs in white/green (Windham/Cooking Italiano).
Now that the flu has passed,
and those weaknesses are over
it's back to my usual glass half-full attitude and some stitching!
And to decide whether or not I'm joining in on the
Sew Along with Lori. :)

Happy last week of February!
