BOM Catch-up

I did spend some quality cutting and sewing time on Sunday:)  My heart was happy and my sewing machine was singing.  Good thing, cause you really don't want to hear my singing caterwauling lol!

I am so happy to have  caught up on my Mystery BOM.  I love these two blocks, Block 8 and Block 9...

 That just leaves 3 more blocks and the settings!  I may actually have this quilt done for ME for Christmas! Afterall, it's still only April lol!

I love collecting vintage things. I think alot of quilters do, some of us to more extent than others.  A really special student of mine heard about my vintage addiction during one of my classes and the next class she brought this lovely old grater! I just love it and it hangs on the side of the cupboard in my kitchen.  And, yes, snowmen hang out at my house all year long :)  You can just get a peek at the vintage tins down in the left corner.  I have two of these, pre-Tupperware era, and use them to store coffee and other dry goods.
Was sick sick sick yesterday with an all day migraine which didn't really let up until about 8 pm.  I don't get them often but when I have one the only thing that works is a totally dark room, coke(as in Cola) lol, aspirin, sleep and soda crackers.

Happy Stitching and God Bless!

Sorry to hear about your migraine, unfortunately, they are very debilitating. But I understand about the coke, it really settles the tummy. I found that gravol works quite well, too. The Mystery blocks are looking excellent.

I'm also sorry to hear you had a migraine. My daughter gets them, and I know how they can wipe a person out. Hope you are better. Yippee on your two BOM's...great job. Love that grater.
