This and That

I caught a cold (or the flu) on my flight home from Florida last Sunday. I’m surprised it doesn’t happen more often. Two little kids were coughing and sneezing 2 rows in front of me and I could almost see the germs. I am not really mad at them or their parents. Who among us would cancel travel plans for a kid’s cold? If you would, you are a saint and I salute you. I figure my number just came up.

There are those who swear by Airborne, vitamins, or some other thing. My doctors tell me that I can take them, but if a germ gets into my nose/eyes/mouth I am pretty much screwed. So I eat healthy and try to never touch my face. I should have had my mask nearby, but I didn’t. And I wasn’t wearing a scarf. Deep sigh.

So what new thing do I have today? Not much. It’s taken me 3 days to get a new pattern online. You heard it here first: Daisy Patch (1st published in 1998) is now a downloadable ePattern! It is 35″ x 35″, finished size perfect for a child or your wall. Make more blocks (in multiples of 4) to make a bigger quilt. It’s fast and it’s cute. What’s not to love?

  1. What a happy looking quilt!
    Sorry about your cold. Kids have colds so much of the time–hard not to travel when they have them so often. Whenever I get a cold, it turns into a sinus infection. I have discovered a nasal spray called Sinus Support, which really seems to work for me. I get a really runny nose (sinuses draining), but after a few hours of misery from that, I’m all better!

  2. That’s one beautiful quilt. I love the colors, I collect them and use the bright colors to make baby quilts.
