I Hate Being Sick!

I hope I make sense today. I have a cold and feel terrible but am getting tired of laying around. I hardly ever call in sick to work but I had to yesterday. I wouldn't have been able to work 1 hour let alone 8. Today and tomorrow are my actual days off. I hate spending them sick!! I had planned on doing some things with the kids and working on some of my projects. It's really frustrating since I don't know when I will get 2 days off in a row again.

These pictures are of the last round robin quilt I worked on for Fiber Art Friends. They met last Friday and I had to work. This background piece was made by Lynne Rand.
This is what it looked like after I added some beading to it. Of course, you can't really see the beading. There was so much going on that I didn't want to add a lot - just something subtle.
At the meeting we recieved our pieces back. Mine was dropped off to me at work after the meeting. I need to get a picture of it and then will post it. Now it is up to us how to finish them for display at our show in October. I have a good idea of what I want to do.

I signed up for the Grab Bag Challenge that is being hosted by Tomme Fent. It was announced on the Quilt Art list. I can't show any pictures of it since the person whose grab bag I recieved might see it on my blog. But I have a good start on what I want to do with it.
For those of you who don't know what this challenge is: You put together a bag of fabric, threads, embellishments, etc. Then these are swapped out and you have to make a quilt using at least 30% of what is in the bag. Here is the link for ones that were done last year. Last year it was called Bag O Stuff Challenge.

I hope you are feeling better.
I haven't heard of an fiber artist round robin. Just used to adding borders around a medallion quilt traditional style. This is neat. It looks like a clown.
