This is the chair (complete with heating pad and box of tissues).
And this has been my view now for going on 10 days!?!
I'm enjoying a bout of viral bronchitis!
I haven't been ill this long for years.
I haven't been confined to the house this long for years.
I haven't been this bored for quite some time!
Fortunately, I have hand-stitching in abundance.
I have the new block to organize and prep for stitching from the #sharksdinnerBOM.
I still have 300 or so 1"hexies to baste for my Dodecagon quilt.
One afternoon I laid out the finished part of this quilt on the floor, finalized my layout plan and calculated what is needed to finish.
My next step is to surround the dodecagon blocks with green hexies, so I've been stitching strips of 7 together to prepare for that step -- I hoped to have all of them ready by the end of February for a retreat I'm attending . . . . but guess what? I have all I need!?!
I cast on the green cardigan -- it's to replace my favorite sweater which I've worn out -- and am just about ready to split for the armholes. Steady as she goes!
Since I'm not receiving visitors (?!?), it's okay to have current projects draped all over the living room. That way they are handy and the boredom cycles easier to manage when I just need to go to the other side of the room to change projects.
Reaching the final corner of hand quilting the central part of this quilt is so exciting!!
Now I just have two borders left to go and I'm determined to finish that in February!
I used up my monthly Hoopla library loans quota for the first time ever -- two audio books and daily movies without leaving the chair!
Recovery is on the horizon but I'm definitely getting stir crazy (no birding or walking) so just need to be patient for a few more days.
What do people do that don't hand stitch when they are sick??
