Sorry I Haven't Written Sooner

It hasn't been the best 2 weeks of the year.  I didn't get much sewing done.  I tell you why later.

I did get my Joined at the Hip BOM done.

Next I made 10 of the pinwheel blocks for the first pieced round of the Humble Quilts/Barrister's Block Medallion Quilt SAL.  

Now for why I haven't gotten much done.  I went for my normal Diabetic check up and everything was fine.  Some of my levels came down.  2 days latter I developed some congestion and then my back started hurting.  Turns out I have a cyst on my back that got infected.  Heavy doses of antibiotics (still have 6 days to take pills) have taken a lot of the redness away and the mass has shrunk.  The meds make me very tired so I can only get a little done at a time.  If it doesn't get better the doctor said she was going to put me in the hospital....ugh.

Any way we had plans to go camping over Memorial Day weekend with my youngest son Mike and his girlfriend Stacy.  We are still going.  I am taking some hand work and plan on vegging out for a week.  Hopefully by then my back will be all cleared up.

We leave tomorrow morning and I can wait.  This will be Sammie's first experience camping.  She loves the trailer.  However, earlier today she tried to go in and didn't realize the screen door was closed.  Ouch!!  Now she waits for us to go in first.

I'll try and post some pictures of our week...not sure if they have wifi but I can post some pictures with my phone.  Ah...modern technology.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

Oh, please take care of yourself! Those cysts are No Fun, and neither is the hospital!

Your BOM blocks are looking good! As is the medallion sew-along. Glad you felt well enough to get some sewing done.
