Strep Throat Drama

Hi guys! Well, day before yesterday (I think), I started feeling really bad and my throat hurt. Yesterday I found out that I have strep throat. I got my antibiotic so will be fine but yuck! I'm thinking I'm too old for that stuff. I woke up at 2 AM and decided to make a block from some of the fabric just in at the shop. This is a 6" Tumbleweed block from Lori Holt's Farm Girl Friday QAL. 
It's a departure for me because it's soft, feminine colors from Bloom & Bliss. Did you notice the polka dot background fabric? We finally found some of it and bought 2 bolts! I think it's the most versatile background ever. By the time I was ironing my tiny block, I was feeling woozy so I gave up and went to bed. Tonight I feel some better but still feel like I could lay down and take a nap all the time. The really bad part is lugging Lola around. I'm glad she's still here to lug around though. So what's up for you this weekend? I'm going to try to get some sewing time in. Going to go to bed now though. It's already 7:20-lol! XO from Bev (and I hate to keep talking about the shop but Hello Darling will be here Monday)!

Sounds like you need a doggie backpack for Lola!

So sorry about your strep - not much that makes you feel worse than that. Love that Bloom & Bliss.
Is it just me or does your blog have a new look? If it isn't new, well I like it anyway! :)

So sorry you are ill! I had that sore throat stuff last week and finally ended up going to the Med Express and got meds. Still have a cough.

Love that block in the light blues and yellows. So pretty!

Have a good weekend.

Sorry you are under the weather! When on antibiotics, be sure to get your probiotics, like live culture yogurt to keep your gut flora healthy!
They say 90% of your immune system is your healthy gut bacteria!
Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

that throat sounds pretty bad t me, hope you are soon back to feeling your old self. I gave in at the quilt show and bought Lori Holt`s vintage farm book, all your fault as you have been sharing such wonderful blocks. Also looked for the bliss fabric but it is not over here yet!
