In the middle of the night, awoken from a sound slumber, I discovered the worst kind of visitor – a stomach virus.  I will spare my readers the troubling details.  Suffice to say, I’ve had a low key kind of Saturday – one awash with weak tea and toast.  Did I mention the unspeakably ugly cold sore that accompanied my predawn distress?  It deserves its own zip code.  Enough said.DSCN7246There were some experimental blocks today – New York Beauties.  I truly love curves and circular patterns, but shy away from them.  I’ve decided that if I am competent enough to set in sleeves, then I can master curves in quilting.  Paper piecing helps.  And bobbles.DSCN7253Messing around with the color wheel and trying to combine low volumes with primary colors… more stretching and moving away from my comfort zone!DSCN7250I often think that my scraps are every bit as lovely as my blocks – sometimes more so!  Have to go back to bed now.  Here’s hoping that yours is a healthy virus-free weekend!
