So, what's next? I've started a scrappy double wedding ring, just just started. That will be a during/between other projects quilt project. lol. I'm collecting scraps of modern fabrics...please feel free to send any my way. ;) I'm also going to start a quilt from batiks that remind me of the Northern California coast.

But today topped all of that. In fact it was pretty near as bad as when I got the chicken pox at like 25.
The day started out normal. I drove to New Orleans to do some training at City Hall, hosted my training, and headed home. On my way home I stopped at Macy's, because I don't usually have the time to stop when I'm on the south shore. But, I cut my stop short because I started feeling bad. At first it I thought it was just Aunt Flo, she came to visit yesterday, but it started getting worse. So I left and about halfway across the Causeway I'm sick. Totally completely sick. I call the hubby just so he knows if I don't make it home he's got to go look for me. I sped home, hoping not to get pulled over, "parked" the car, and left everything in the car. Sweet sweet hubby brought all my stuff in while I peeled off soaking wet sweaty clothes. Ya, that sick. I had the AC on full blast and still sweat the whole way across the lake. I couldn't lay down, I couldn't sit up, I couldn't stand. I probably should have gone to the ER, but I just KNEW that if I could throw up I'd feel better. So when I finally fell asleep I slept for 5 hours and woke up feeling much more normal. I'm still feeling pretty pooky and if I'm this far from normal tomorrow I'm going to the doctor.
Hope this post isn't too much of a downer.
If you need something more exciting here's an awesome interview with Cherri House and give-away at my friend, Angela's, blog: Cut to Pieces. :)

The New Orleans Modern Quilt Guild had a free sew today and I took this sweetie to show off. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this quilt. I've got a Christmas Mix-Tape quilt that I made last year and I've pieced a Christmas Mod Bento Box that's next in line for quilting. So, this one might end up a gift. Or not. lol.
I'm also kind of at a cross roads. I've finished piecing my MMBII squares and they're off in the mail for swap. So, it's time to start a new project. I'm just don't know what. There are a couple projects that I've started that I probably should finish, but I just don't feel like it: Scratch 'n Sniff and my Halloween Spiderweb. And, I've got some quilts in mind that I'd like to start: Rocky Road to Kansas scrap quilt and a Double Wedding Ring made of vintage sheets. The nieces also want quilts.
Reluctantly, but only because I'm lacking motivation today, I started another small quilt of donated scraps. That one shouldn't take long to complete though.
Oh, and I joined A la Mode's quilt as you go quilt along. I think I might do some work on that. Though I might use this quilt along as an excuse for diving into some of my more traditional Christmas novelty fabric and playing with free motion quilting. Do you think that would be OK? Or, should I stick with the modern quilting fabrics that Heather's using?

I am hoping though that my over achievement doesn't make life difficult for the moderator.
All these Mod Bento Box squares and I'm still not tired of making these blocks! I need to find a new favorite quilt block. Any suggestions?
