I'm Making a Life Size Puzzle

These infections make me sleepy. I'm working smart to get them gone, and there's good progress, but it's taking a LONG time. I keep a good outlook though because for all the things I can't do, there's plenty that I can.

Like the patch quilt I started this past weekend. Doing this one by hand because I don't want to be tied to a sewing machine. And I'll tell ya' what, I'm enjoying the freedom to quilt ANYWHERE.

Basically, I'm bored with the digital jigsaw puzzles. So I decided to make a life size puzzle out of fabric, and I'll piece together the individual pieces when they're done. Will post them another day.

For now, I'm gonna close my eyes and dream about bagels and cream cheese.

  1. As the Eurythmics sang, "Sweet dreams are made of cheese." Or something like that.

    1. Hahahaha. I laughed and then sung this new song and then this morning, read it to my mom over the phone. So funny.

    1. I love lox but lately it's been making me sick so I have to pass. But you enjoy. Also, I never ate a caper.

    1. It's just leftover fleece that I cut up and am making shapes with. Nothing fancy, but lots and lots of fun.

    1. Butter on them is yummy. But I'm not brave enough to try butter yet, as the smell of it still makes me sick.

  10. Hope you feel better soon! Are you working on the purple puzzle? That would drive me nuts. (I think I already said that.) :) Bagels and cream cheese sound good. Now you're making me hungry!

  11. Wow, that life-size puzzle sounds amazing! And I am glad you are hand quilting. Something so special about working with your hands. I am sorry the infections continue to impact you. I hope you're feeling much better soon.

    1. Some value hand over machine. I really don't care either way, but for this, I wanted the FREEDOM from being tied to a sewing machine.

      I love sitting at the cafe with a patch or two. Or out back, or anywhere, really.

      So fun.

  13. I must be really tired 'cause I thought you were making a life size puzzle of yourself. How did I even come up with such a thing? I've been sniffing paint fumes for two days now :)
