Hope you are doing well! I happen to have a massive sinus and ear infection . . . yuck! I've actually had them for a couple of weeks. I finally went to the doctor yesterday for some antibiotics. I don't know why it took me so long to get some help. I'd been in lots of pain, haven't been able to concentrate on anything and very tired. Now hopefully I'm on the road to recovery. :)
I haven't gotten much done lately, as you know. I did manage to get some heart blocks done last week though. I wanted to take pictures and post them but my older kids were visiting this past weekend and I didn't get it done.
Last night I went to take pictures and my SD card was missing from my camera. I went to my computer which is the only other place my SD card ever is and it wasn't there either. I have no idea what happened to it. I looked everywhere and still didn't find it. I went out today and bought a new one. I put it in my camera and it didn't work. An error kept coming up. I got online and did some research to see what the problem was. I found out that my camera was not compatible with the 4GB SDHC card I purchased since it's an older camera. I needed a 2 GB SD card. UUUGGGHHH!!! I really didn't want to go back to the store and get another one. I asked my son what type of card he had in his camera and he happened to have the one I needed so he traded with me. Now I have what I need and he has an upgraded one. Lucky him! :)
Sorry for the long story. Just one frustration I really didn't need when I'm not feeling well. :( I did manage to get the pictures of the blocks taken. YEAH!!! :)
It was my first attempt at paper piecing. I made 3 blocks. One for me and the other 2 for my two swap partners. Here they are . . .
I'm a little behind on these blocks as it's already March but the sign ups were late. It's part of a 12-month block-of-the-month swap so it's really not too big of a deal. Here's one of the blocks up close . . .
I'm happy with how they turned out! :) I was very nervous when I started on them as I hadn't ever tried paper piecing before. I used this tutorial for the heart. It was really great and I had fun! :)
I'm hoping to sit down and get some cutting done for a couple of projects I want to start on tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have the energy. Wish me luck! :)
Until next time . . .
