I have found why so many quilters have a large collection of rulers. I have made 2 errors in cutting, total so far, on the Victory quilt sampler and those blocks were trash. I had another one last night on a diamond shaped pinwheel/star. Oh well, I did my favorite block in the group and that is Bride's Bouquet. I gotta invest in more rulers, I have been just too cheap about it. I have not been able to clearly improvise on these blocks.
I also want to encourage the Circle of Friends to not put off on the block exchange blocks. Here is a sneak peak at one I finished yesterday. I hope everyone is having as much fun as I am with this block. The "punch" color has been my challenge. I love the saturated color for this block. DRAMA!
I am still on a confinement for another couple of days. I am having a Radioactive Iodine Treatment (to blast any residual thyroid and cancer cells) so I can't be closer than 7 feet to people. I am able to accomplish some. No housework though. My face and neck are a little swollen and scary looking. I am so thankful that this is easily treated. All scans are good at this point.
I am tired, no thyroid. The Doctor said a another patient had people calling her Ozzie, as in Osbourne; because of the blithering, forgetfulness and overall stupor due to this no thyroid thing. I can relate. Where's SHARON when I need her!!!!!! I think that I will start to be back to my old self by Sunday. I get to go on my thyroid again then and I get to eat a regular diet. Yeah , just in time for the traditional Mother's Day brunch at the golf course!! Can't wait, it is very good.
Here is a photo of Dexter the fabric eating, yarn stealing and yes, gnome chewing beast of a dog. I love him but he makes my crafting a challenge at times. He looks so angelic when he is sleeping too, just like a toddler.....
