Happy New Year

Happy New Year Everyone. Thank you for your get well wishes they mean so much to me.

I have spent a little time on my Fig and Plum bed quilt. I finally found the perfect pattern for me. Pretty but not too fussy. It will look like this:

The only thing I changed from this is that the peach diagonals are scrappy from the fat quarters instead of using yardage. The blocks are all finished I just have to do the applique center and it will be ready to put together. It only took me two days. As soon as I can be out of bed for more than a few minutes without being ill I will get soem pictures of the blocks. It will be 90 inches square.

Yuck alert...if you are squimish don't read beyond here......

If you are wondering how I burned myself... I was using the baster to get some juice from the turkey I made yesterday and squirted the 350 degree liquid all over my chest. I threw myself to the sink and washed down with cold water immediately then used ice but I have huge blisters some larger than quarters all over my chest. I am wearing an old t-shirt because it is oozy and icky but I will live. There are only two small places where it is really bad (worse than blisters). Thank heaven I didn't hit my face.

Hugs... talk soon.

Hope you heal quickly Julie and it wasn't your eyes! I love your quilt plan - it will be gorgeous. Take care of yourself and don't overdo it!

Julie!!! :-O


When I was a kid, my dad burned his chest by opening a hot radiator... I remember those quarter-sized blisters. :(

Get better soon! Burns are awful.

Your quilt design is very pretty though.
